What is a Saucepan and What Types Can I Find?
A saucepan is a deep cooking pan with a flat bottom, high sides, and a long handle. It is designed for cooking a variety of dishes, from boiling water and cooking sauces to simmering soups and stews. A saucepan can even be used for daily cooking tasks in a pinch, such as cooking rice or poaching eggs. The versatility of a saucepan makes it an essential tool for everyday cooking. Saucepans can be found in a variety of sizes and materials. Whether you need a small saucepan for creating finishing sauces, or a large nonstick saucepan for general cooking, you'll be sure to find something to suit your needs at Harris Scarfe. Popular saucepan types include:
- Stainless steel saucepans: Great for everyday cooking, stainless steel is durable and can be washed in the dishwasher.
- Non-stick saucepans: These are a great option for making scrambled eggs and other dishes where you need a non-stick surface.
- Induction saucepans: If you have an induction stove, be sure to choose a saucepan that is suitable.

How to clean a burnt saucepan?
To clean a burnt saucepan, fill it with water and a few tablespoons of baking soda, then bring the mixture to a boil. Let it simmer for a few minutes, then scrub the pan with a sponge or brush to remove the burnt residue.
What is a non-reactive saucepan?
A non-reactive saucepan is made of materials that do not react with acidic or alkaline ingredients, such as stainless steel or enamel-coated pans. This type of saucepan is ideal for cooking dishes that contain ingredients like tomatoes, citrus fruits, or wine, as it prevents any unwanted flavours from being transferred to the food. Shop high-quality non-reactive saucepans from trusted brands such as Swiss Diamond.
Stainless steel vs. cast iron vs. aluminium saucepan?
Stainless steel saucepans are more versatile and easier to maintain, as they don't rust or react with acidic foods. Cast iron saucepans, on the other hand, are great for providing even heat distribution and retaining heat for longer periods of time, making them great for stovetop-to-oven cooking. Aluminium saucepans heat up quickly, are nonstick and distribute heat evenly, making them great for cooking delicate dishes. If you opt for stainless steel, Scanpan is a reliable brand to look at. For aluminium saucepans, check out the great range from Smith+Nobel for options.
