Enhancing Your Sauces with a 5 Quart Saucepan

Discover all the delicious ways you can embellish your meals when you select a 5 quart saucepan. These larger saucepans are perfect for both simple or complex sauces and feature high enough walls that you can make enough for a meal for one or treat your whole family to one of your signatures. With a wide range of selections available right now at Williams Sonoma, you can shop your favorite brands, add to a beloved cookware collection or begin to curate a new line you've been considering for awhile. A 5 quart saucepan quickly becomes an essential at home, too, so don't be surprised when you use it several times a week or even every day.

Why You Need A 5 Quart Saucepan

There are a number of cookware types and sizes a good home chef usually likes to keep on hand. Shopping cookware sets is a good way to outfit your kitchen, while a 5 quart saucepan adds another basic element that feels like a luxury.

  • Saucepans come in a variety of sizes ranging from 1 or 1-1/2 quarts to 5 quarts. The larger pans are exactly right for making bigger batches of sauce.
  • Many people make a sauce batch and freeze it for use throughout the week. If you have a classic tomato sauce recipe your family loves, this is a wonderful way to indulge them. Spend an evening making several servings of sauce in your 5 quart saucepan and serve as you go.
  • These larger saucepan sizes are for you if you love to entertain or if you host holidays at your home. It's easy to make sauce for many when you have a larger saucepan. If you have a smaller one you use often, it's probably time to get a larger one for crowds.

Saucepan Features to Shop

When checking out saucepans, look for a few basic features that let you know you've found a great one.

  • The walls of your 5 quart saucepan need to be high. For a pan that has lots of interior room, but is shallower and wider, look for fry or saute pans. Saute pans have the walls like a saucepan, just lower.
  • The lid of a saucepan needs to fit firmly onto the pan. Many lids fit into the lip of a pan for a fit that prevents splattering. With a top handle on the lid, you can lift it frequently to stir or release aromas and flavors.
  • An elongated handle makes it easy to keep stirring, especially when you have sauces that require it every few minutes before thickening. Hold the pan steady with one hand and stir with a wooden or silicone spatula. The long handle keeps your non-stirring hand at a safe distance.

Take a look at the different saucepans available now and start making dinner plans for all the scrumptious sauces you'll be making in no time.
