Customer questions about this product

How can I properly care for this aluminum item?
Hand washing is always the best option to ensure that your aluminum stays in best working order. However, if you decide to clean these in a dishwasher, we strongly recommend using metal-safe detergents and sanitizers to eliminate any flaking or tarnishing that could occur from some harsher cleaners.
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.

Town 35403 Details

The Town 35403 3 qt. tapered aluminum sauce pan / dipper is great for stewing, boiling, and braising. It is perfect for all restaurants and caterers.

Each sauce pan features a plated steel handle riveted to an 17-gauge aluminum body which is marked with cup graduations and a beaded top edge. Since the handle is riveted on, it ensures a very rigid connection between handle and vessel, guaranteeing longevity even in a commercial kitchen.

A tapered sauce pan is ideal for cooking at lower temperatures for a longer time, because the smaller bottom diameter allows for less heat exposure. The flared sides of the pan also allows for good stirring action.

Overall Dimensions:
Top Diameter: 8"
Height: 4"
Capacity: 3 quart

It is a good and strong material but when i use it the handle get too hot so i dont use it again we just use it for a back up

Pornrawin H. from Thaiparadise Llc on 02/19/2021

I like how small it is great for making quick sauces - I would order a bigger one and I would also recommend this little one for small projects.

Ericka J. on 06/05/2018

I use this 3 qt. Sauce pan for cooking hard voiled eggs. I also use it as a boy or boiler to melt chocolate. It is the perfect size.

Ariane S. from NN on 12/04/2017

great product. easy to clean. definitely thick enough for all of the curries that we served but not so thick to the point where it takes forever to get the pan heated

Pajaree W. on 08/30/2017

A better quality pan than the price would lead you to believe. The handle isn't the most durable, but for general use it is a good pan.

Stephen B. on 06/10/2017

Great heavy duty pot. It does give a metallic flavor to acidic sauces like tomato, so make sure to use a different pot. But this has been great for holding soups and little demi's

Michael L. on 05/19/2017

OK pot wish I had paied a little more attention to detail in the pictures. The handle on the pot is much lower quality than expected.

This sauce pan is really great its perfect for boiling up sugar, caramel, and the like ITs a good size for a recipe of candy brittle

Yoel R. from Sweetart on 03/01/2017

Love this Sauce Pan. I got this for my wife for Christmas and she has fell in love with it. It conducts heat evenly and even if you don't was this right away after using, is very easy to clean. I plan to purchase a larger size for small batches of soup that will definitely be great for these long winter evenings.

Kristi M. from Panola Pepper Corporation on 01/11/2017

The quality of the sauce pan is excellent. I bought it for the restaurant. The size is big and able to hold lots stuff. My cooks are very happy with it. Will be back and order more.

Choi W. on 12/09/2016

Nice for the price not the greatest pans ever but good light duty sauce pan don't expect to much but there good enough for now

Mike R. from Home on 09/09/2016

The price of the pan was good. I was a little disappointed that the pan wasn't as heavy as I anticipated and the handle was thinner. My mistake though, I'll be buying heavier pans next time.

Paul F. on 06/28/2016

This pan, being thin and made of aluminum, will heat up quickly. Be careful that if you're heating a liquid, the sides of the pot will get hotter, faster than the liquid itself. Also, note that the handle isn't that long.

Nick H. on 05/23/2016

Works perfect , great for home use. I love how this sauce pan has measurements on the outside and inside of the pan for liquid measurements. I enjoy making my pastry cream/ simple syrup.

Susana R. from Home Use on 05/22/2016

Town 35403 3 Qt. Tapered Aluminum Sauce Pan is a must in any kitchen when constantly boiling, cooking ect. Great price and easy to wash- i would recommend to buy!

Diane W. on 09/08/2015

Thick heavy aluminum pot, the handle does get hot however i will be getting the handle covers for it. I am super happy with the size it is perfect for my french dip for my family. Will be buying the whole set for home as well as getting a few sets for work. Love this treasure!

Rachel Y. on 05/06/2015

New record...received this shipment in two days, thank you! The body of this saucepan is much sturdier than I anticipated, still had factory dust, wash thoroughly before use, and remember: hand wash only. I only wish the handle was a bit longer, for my big hands. For the price, this is a solid pan. Definitely recommend.

Stephen S. on 04/17/2015

Extremely useful sauce pan - perfect size for our family. It heats quickly and has been ideal for gravy and making butter topping for mashed potatoes.

John S. on 03/02/2015

Very pleased with this tapered aluminum sauce pan. Perfect for our small family. Should last a lifetime. Great quality. Not too big and not too small.

Sandra D. from Home on 12/24/2014

It's a sauce pan and it's for cooking, but this is my go-to pan for candle-making. Perfect size for the task and there's no worry of having to remove wax from your expensive cookware.

Nikki U. on 10/05/2014

This is a very good sauce pan. I use it all the time. It is very steady and I would recommend this pan to all.

Shawn H. from S & H Gourmet LLC on 11/12/2013

This is a small pot but really comes in handy to refill my steam table with food. They are also good for melting butter or making gravy in.

David D. on 09/22/2012

Great pot for small sauces or steaming small amounts of vegetables. I use this pan everyday in my kitchen. I use it so much I bought 2 of them!

Daniel A. on 09/05/2010

Great standard pan for your restaurant. Comes in several sizes. Good quality, good price. We have used this and it still shines like new. Wonderful item.
