Choosing An American Made Saucier
A while back I decided that I needed to upgrade my kitchen tools to include a saucier, something that would be perfect for making things like alfredo sauce.
Finding an American made saucier pan took a little searching. Here are the pans that I finally wound up choosing between. If you are looking for American made stainless steel pans, consider one of these.
If you are wondering why I was wanting a saucier and not just a sauce pan, or what the difference is, check out my post Sauce Pan Vs Saucier.
Heritage steel 3 quart saucier
A solidly built stainless steel saucier, this 3 quart saucier with 5-ply construction of 316Ti stainless steel is a great all around sauce pan. It does feature a flared rim for easy pouring.

American Kitchen 3 quart saucier
The second stainless steel saucier that I found in my search was this one from American Kitchen. A great build at a reasonable price and made in West Bend, WI.

360 Cookware 2 quart saucier
People seem to like this 2 quart saucier from 360 Cookware. That being said, it is only ‘assembled’ in the USA, and doesn’t come with a lid, so it doesn’t excite me as much. Their dedication to moving all their production to the USA is admirable though.

My Final Choice For A Saucier
Ultimately I wound up choosing the American Kitchen 3 quart saucier as my new pan for making sauces. The deciding factor was ultimately the price. The American Kitchen was cheaper, and had free shipping on their website, so that was enough to make it the newest pan in my kitchen.
I liked the Heritage saucier, but I didn’t feel that the extra layers of metal would make that much of a difference in my cooking. Just going from a cast iron skillet, or single ply stainless steel pan would be enough of an upgrade in my world.
