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.
Are the capacities given in the description exact?
The capacity given for this cookware is an estimate and may be off by +/- 10%.

Vollrath Induction Cooktops

Take a tour through Vollrath University and learn what they have to offer in the world of induction cooktops. Learn why the only fire a chef really needs is inside!

The next time you order off a menu or visit a buffet, think about this: there's a good chance your food was prepared, cooked or served with Vollrath small wares and food service equipment. In addition to their traditional gas and electric equipment options, Vollrath's expanding line of induction products are heating up the food industry. With more precise and energy efficient cooking, that's safer and faster. Today we're in Sheboygan, Wisconsin to find out what makes Vollrath so hot. For Almost 145 years, the Vollrath company has been manufacturing high quality small wares and food service equipment right here in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Today we continue to be family owned and we continue to grow through new product acquisitions and innovations of our own. So with 9 manufacturing facilities across North American, Europe and Asia, we continue to supply a wide variety of products to many international food service markets. The Mirage series is durable by design and able to withstand the daily use and abuse of a professional kitchen, ensuring their equipment is built to last. Our industrial design team gets involved in the very beginning stages of product development all the way to the team process to the end. It's a very integrated process. A good example of this is our Mirage induction buffet warmer, which is a terrific collaboration of industrial design and engineering. So what we ended up with is a very sophisticated looking product but it's very robust, very efficient, using induction heat, so really we've improved on the customer serving experience. What's really nice about this product is that you can connect three of them together and just have one cord going to the wall. Simple, smart, safe. The team at Vollrath works diligently to evolve induction technology inside and out. As far as R and D we work closely with our customers to understand the rigors of their kitchens, because a commercial kitchen can be very difficult on equipment. We then work on advanced development here as well and we marry the two to design something that works the best for them with aesthetics, reliability, and fine control in mind the whole way through. Our expansive product selection makes us a one stop shop for our customers in induction. Products themselves started in this flat state; they were primary cooking and people loved them for the efficiency of the units and the control. If I can dial something in here and get an exact power setting each and every time and we can control it by time as well, we have very repeatable results that anyone can achieve. I think one of the biggest innovations though has come when we have taken the coil now and brought it up the sides of the unit. So this now provides very even heating around the soup pot. Typically when you see on the inside of the pot, if you ever go to a soup bar and you see all the soup around the top edge, that's just waste. Operators really love how even this heats. We have a chain that has reported to us over a 30% increase in their food yields. I mean that's real money and people just love the waterless design. Here at Vollrath they've built an entire training facility for food service professionals to provide a more hands on experience. As our business evolved we recognized the need to have an industry leading training facility. We wanted a space that customers could actually come in and touch and feel the products. We try to be like the ivy league of the food service university industry, if there is such a thing. In the university we have three areas: the first area is our classroom area and this is where the details really come out, we train on the features and benefits of the products. Then we have our showroom area. This is a space where the customers or guests can go into and touch the products and feel what we talked about in the training. Then the test area, coming in here and using the product is a critical step for a lot of our customers, it really brings everything together. These best in class products definitely take the cake. Making a product look engaging and safe and intuitive but at the same time robust and commercial can be a challenge, but we like the challenge and we're really pretty good at it. Vollrath's induction technology line continues to outperform every day. Proving that the only fire a chef really needs is inside. Bon Appétit!

    i use these pans in all different sizes and they're so great. they're heavy and well made, so they stand up to even heavy abuse in the kitchen. they work just as well as the more expensive brands.
    The perfect pan for making our homemade sauces. The pan feels very well made and is quite heavy duty. Pan is easy to clean up after use.
    The Vollrath Optio 2.75 Qt. Sauce Pan with Cover is very sturdy and heavy weight. It heats evenly and is easy to clean. It is great for soups, chili and sauces and can be used for residential and commercial use.
    We got the Optio set as a Christmas present. This is such a good looking set and it makes you feel so professional in a home kitchen. You can’t beat the versatility (especially as a renter) because they’re induction ready and can also be used with gas or electric ranges. Because they’re made of stainless steel, they’re oven safe up to 350F. The price is fantastic, especially since it includes the lid.
    Perfect sauce pan. I've been using it to heat up sauces/water and it's worked out beautifully. The lid fits on nicely and it looks really nice and sturdy. Should hopefully last a long time.
    i got these pans in a variety of sizes and theyre really great. theyre very solid and sturdy and perfect for my needs. they look really nice which is an added perk
    Amazing pan. It is very, very well made and holds up to regular use by my wife. It heats well and works great for basically anything you need.
    A great saucepan with an impressively sturdy base. The handle is long as to prevent scalding your hand and the top fits snuggly. The sides are decently thick for this price point. Would buy again
    This is an excellent saucepan, with impressive build quality. When comparing it to my other pans of similar quality, they were much more expensive. The Optio has a nice thick base that almost completely covers the bottom of the pan body. The steel walls are much thicker than expected for the price, finish work is good, with an easy-to-clean brushed finish that I really like. Another feature I really appreciate is the handle. It's long, hollow, fat and round
    Where has Vollrath been all my life?!. I absolutely love these sauce pans, it heats well and the overall the cookware feels solid and sturdy. I now plan on buying Vollrath to replace all my older cookware. Price point is definitely affordable. Great buy.
    Wow. This thing is SOLID. I'm very impressed at how far my money went with this sauce pan. The bottom is perfectly flat and the pan performs flawlessly and is effortless to clean. Feels very well constructed-- I'll likely ditch the rest of my sauce pans soon in favor of the rest of the Vollrath pans. Highly recommended.
    This is a very sturdy / heavy duty pan. Vollrath seems to offer high quality products for a fairly low price. This is also a multi purpose size
    A prefect pan for reducing wine for sauces. You can use also use a stainless steel whip for a cream sauce without discoloring your sauce in this pan. A great pan for a tight budget.
    This is a very nice and sturdy sauce pan. The size is perfect and it is a great buy for the price. I will be purchasing these again.
