La Cintura di Orione SaucepansPrice: $87.00
Design by Richard Sapper and Gualtiero Archesi, 2006.
The long-handle saucepan can be considered a variation of the casserole with two handles, more suitable for professional use, especially in the larger sizes. It can be used for braising and stewing (especially small cuts of food) and is to be preferred to the sauteuse for the preparation of sauces which do not require mixing (not requiring the use of a whisk) or that are cooked with the lid on (as with tomato and meat sauces). The smallest pan (10 cm) can also be used as a sauce or gravy warmer.
Lids sold separately.
Material(s): Aluminum with non-stick coating and handles in 18/10 stainless steel
Dimensions: Small 5.5" Dia X 3.1" H Capacity 1.3 qt.; Large 6.3" Dia X 3.5" H Capacity 1.9 qt.

Alessi. Art and Poetry.
Alessi is a family owned Italian design company, founded in 1921. Giovanni Alessi, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. He was later joined by his son Carlo who was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s and early 1940s. In the mid 1940s Alessi began to work with outside designers. The current Alessi catalog is the result of a collaboration with over 500 designers from all over the world.
"A true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain. From this point of view, design intended to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential." — Alberto AlessiView other products from Alessi
