A sauté pan, with its straight sides, offers a large surface area for searing meat, reducing sauces, and keeping your ingredients inside the pan while you cook. Look for models with a large, flat bottom for even heat distribution and a long handle that allows you to easily shake or toss ingredients. Heavy screws or rivets should be used to attach the handle to the body of the pan so you have better leverage and control. Saute pans are often made of copper, anodized aluminum, cast iron, stainless steel, and various nonstick surfaces. Copper and anodized aluminum offer the best conductivity but come at a high price. You'll have to decide which material is right for you based on the type of cooking you do most often and the foods you like to sauté.
