Saucepans

Sauce is a magical ingredient that binds foods together and adds juices to your dish. Saucepans are fantastic tools for preparing delicious sauces in your own kitchen, so they are important basics for your cookware collection. Williams-Sonoma carries a large selection of saucepans in different sizes and materials – from copper to cast iron. You can also find a wide variety of accessories and utensils to help make your sauces successful.


A saucepan is essentially a small, round cooking pot with tall sides. Its small size makes it ideal for making a variety of sauces, gravies and glazes, and it can be useful for warming up milk or melting butter. It has a long handle, which makes it easy to lift it off of the element and pour your sauce. Some saucepans have pouring spouts on the edges, which prevent drips and spills while pouring. A oven mitts help you safely grasp hot handles or lids.
