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.

    pan handle great easy helper saute works pans Nice braising
  • Arrange by 
    I LOVE THIS PAN!! The size is wonderful, I love how much I can cook in it without overcrowding. It’s super easy to clean, a quick, gentle scrub with a sponge and it cleans right up l. It heats up quickly and cooks evenly, even on our cheap stove. The handles are big, probably a little too big for our small apartment kitchen, but it makes it so easy to maneuver, I don’t mind. I love that it comes with a lid also.
    I love this pan! Everything I have from Vigor is wonderful and holds up well to continuous use as compared to other brands. The fact that this is induction ready is just a cherry on top!
    This sauce pan has a deceptive amount of heft and feels extremely solid. The helper handle comes very much in handy. Definitely maximizes the possible space you can use on a home kitchen range so you it can handle any saucy experiment you throw at it.
    This saute pan is now my go-to cooking pot. I do almost everything in it. It heats evenly through and everything inside it cooks up real fast. I love that it's dishwasher safe, too.
    While not ridiculously huge, this is a good size for everyday use. I like the straight sides and the capacity; it's perfect for things like chicken francese or the like.
    nice large pan that works with our conduction cooktop. It is easy to pick up having the extra handle on the edge. Beware both handles get hot.
    This is a great saute pan! It cooks the food evenly and is durable. The handle is easy to grip and love that it comes with a cover!
    This pan works well, but not a great pan during service, good for preparation before. The drawback is the size of handle and the weight of the panned a touch awkwardness with the helper handle on the other side. Works great on induction burners.
    The 5 qt. stainless steel saute pan is a great product to have in your home. Not only does it do it's job, you can use the pan for multiple other dishes instead of just sauteing. While the helper handle is a good thing to have, the pan itself is not that heavy to where you would need it. There are no hot spots and the clean up is easy. I would purchase another one.
    For both prep and line work this pot is very versatile. Not a huge fan of the front handle, but it does make for eat transport. Nice wide pan for searing or even small braising needs.
    I use this saute pan as a home substitute for a flat-top to grill chicken and burgers. I also use to it make large batches of sauces that need lots of surface area to reduce. This pan is incredibly versatile and made really well. It's a joy to use! Aside from the the rather utilitarian-looking handle, it makes a great addition to my collection of pots and pans.
    The heavy bottoms of these pans is great. They heat evenly and retain heat well. Works great with my induction cooktop, and the helper handle on the larger pans comes in very handy. The first one I ordered arrived damaged, and Webstaurant Store was quick to respond and offer to send a replacement.
    I bought this as a Christmas present for my daughter, so I had not been able to use it until recently. This is a nice, hefty, stainless steel pan--the weight is important in that it both gets and retains heat quite well--and it has no noticeable 'hotspots.' It is easy to clean. It is nice and deep, it works well as a fryer as well as for braising. The lid is recessed, which is wonderful for braising and simmering as any steam falls back into the pan (as opposed to all over the stove). The only thing that I find disappearing is the handle; it is shaped like a half to three-quarterback inch pipe, that is to say that it is round. I find this to be a bit clumsy, but then my hands are quite small. Fortunately, there is a helper handle, as well. All in all, it is very good bargain. I would not hesitate to recommend this pan.
    Fantastic frying pan!! This saute pan will withstand hundreds of delicious meals!! Induction ready and easy to clean and maintain! Well built and easy to hang!!!
