Sauté Pans

Sauté Pans

Every family needs a sauté pan. Busy moms and dads rely on them to make delicious one-pot meals that kids love. At Williams-Sonoma we have a huge variety to choose from. From nonstick and ceramic to stainless-steel and multi-ply offerings with an aluminum or copper core, both professionals and everyday cooks can find the sauté pan of their dreams. And with a ton of different sizes, you can create culinary masterpieces for your family, no matter how big it is. Don’t forget about pizza to make kids happy.


Advanced nonstick pans are popular with parents, mainly because of how easy they are to use. All of our nonstick cookware is PFOA-free so you can stay worry-free. Making family favorites is a cinch in a large sauté pan, since there’s plenty of room to prepare whatever you can think of. Best of all, nonstick means effortless cleanup afterward. Just pop your pan in the dishwasher and you’re done. Hard-anodized aluminum conducts heat well for even cooking, and our special coatings are resistant to any kind of cooking utensils – even metal.


Stainless-steel helps sauté pans do what they do best – perfect browning. Plus, it’s exceptionally durable and resistant to falls, scratches and just about anything else you throw at it. That’s why it’s a great choice for families. Our stainless-steel cookware is designed to last you a lifetime. An aluminum core adds superior heat-conductivity to ensure even cooking. And the lustrous surface of stainless-steel looks beautiful at the dining room table. Check out our other stainless-steel pieces for every occasion.


If you want to equip your kitchen like a pro – or are a professional chef – the All-Clad D5 series is the way to go. All-Clad pieces are well-known and beloved by cooks around the world, thanks to their carefully designed alternating layers of aluminum and stainless-steel. They provide the best of both worlds: the quick heating and precise temperature control of aluminum and the long-lasting construction and non-reactive surface of stainless-steel. That way you get reliable – and incredible – results every time. Heat-resistant stainless-steel handles on both sides allow for easy manipulation without accidents. Professionals know that the right knives are also important for food prep and execution.


Copper and copper-core sauté pans offer unmatched heating properties. Copper heats quickly and evenly. That means fast cooking and precise temperature control. No matter where you put your meats in the pan, they all brown equally and masterfully. Making stews or roasts is a lot easier in copper since it cooks all the way around, not just from below. A stainless-steel inner layer retains all of the heating benefits without affecting the flavor of your recipes.


Brilliant enamel colors capture the attention of family and friends alike and add flair to any meal. Our enameled cast-iron sauté pans and Dutch ovens are versatile. Cast iron can easily be transferred directly from stove top to oven, so food is able to concentrate all of its juices and flavors for hours. And when it’s ready, all you have to do is take it straight from the kitchen to the table to serve hot. Always protect your table from hot cookware using a trivet. And because the pans are dishwasher-safe, you don’t have to scrub by hand.


Nonstick ceramic cookware is another smart idea for quick and easy cooking. Our high-quality professional-grade ceramic coatings are resistant to staining and scratching, so working with them is a breeze. For healthy cooking, this is a great option, since you don’t need to use any oil to brown proteins and veggies like an expert. Ceramic sauté pans are specially designed for use with cutting-edge induction surfaces. And since they’re PFOA-, PFTE-, cadmium- and PFOS-free, you can rest easy knowing your family is safe.
