4203-L 3 qt (12c) saucepan is great for almost anything you want to do in a saucepan. It is the most popular size All-Clad saucepan and has a stainless lid. It has a loop helper handle so when it is full it is easier to pick up. It diffuses the heat so well, you need only to cook on low to medium heat. Metal utensils and whisks welcome. Ovensafe to 500 degrees.
