Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

    I have found this line is a great way to get stainless steel at half the price and a good quality. Beware of the imitators of this line their interior sides aren't smooth which will discolor & harbor food residue.

    Durable pan that heats up quickly and cooks food very nicely. We purchased several of the Vollrath pans in multiple sizes, easy to clean and look nice.

    These are awesome for use with an induction burner. We've got several induction burners in the downstairs prep kitchen and we use these pans all the time.
