Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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

    Works as expected and so far is durable. happy with the quick service and shipping. Would buy again if needed, so far so good for use.
    These Vollrath sauce pans are really nice and well worth the money. My cooks use them everyday and they hold up to abuse. We use this 4.5 qt size pan to do large batches of sauces and gravy. The only thing that wears out are the rubber cool handles which can be easily replaced. We keep a few on hand just in case!
    This sauce pan is the perfect size for making small batches of gravy and other sauces that we don’t make large quantities of. It distributes heat evenly and the handle stays cool.
    The Vollrath Wear-Ever 4.5 Qt. Tapered Sauce Pan with Natural Finish and Cool Handle has become my go to pot. It is heavy weight and it heats evenly. It is dishwasher safe and the handle doesn’t get hot. This pot is great for everyday use and is made to last for years.
    Our church makes peanut brittle every year during the holiday season and we decided to purchase all new pans for cooking. These were absolutely perfect. Sturdy, light and easy to clean. They were just the right size and made our entire operation better! The pans also hold heat well. The construction is also great with the riveted handles and the cool grip is a must! The finish is smooth. No complaints here!
