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?

    pan sauce great sturdy pans price Vollrath heats sauces nice

    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.

    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.
