Customer questions about this product

What's the difference between a riveted and a welded handle?
A riveted handle is connected by small metal pieces (called rivets) that are crushed between the handle and the pan body to attach them together. This type of handle is more common on copper and aluminum cookware.

For a handle to be welded, the metal must first be melted and then adhered to the pan body. This creates a strong bond that leaves little to no space in between, so bacteria and other food crumbs can’t collect and cause sanitation issues. Both are long lasting solutions for fry and sauce pan handles because they are durable and can withstand heat.
Are the capacities given in the description exact?

Thanks to its aluminum clad bottom, this 2.5 qt. Vollrath 3801 saute pan heats quickly and evenly, making it perfect for sauteing, browning, searing poaching, stir frying and more! Its durable brushed stainless steel surface distributes heat quickly, and won't pit, discolor, or transfer flavors. This induction saute pan's large radius corners help minimize waste and enable easy cleaning, and the handle is welded to the pan to present a uniform construction while allowing for a perfectly smooth interior.

    This pan looks just like how it shows in the picture. It's a bit heavier than I thought it would be. However, the product is satisfactory overall.
