“In the first place, as a home cook in a big saucepan is needed”, says Severine, Meijer, teacher at Hospitality Academy, and a private chef for a fine dining and small catering services. The pan is especially good for pasta or potatoes to boil, or stew, to make. “If you do not have a pan are required, which is great as it is.”

According to Meijer, we are likely to get most of our food, in a small saucepan to stop it. “And that’s what makes it hard, if you continue to stir, mash, or puree,” she says. In short, it is better to place it in the pan, then it is fine.

Large pots such as a stockpot or a mussel pan is not, per se, is required in the kitchen. “A mussel pan is the typical high-top – it can be very helpful, because of the unique plot and the mussels in the pan and you can serve it. But the mussels, you can easily be prepared in a large stew pot.”

A saucepan is vital in the kitchen, it is easy to heat small amounts of it. “If you are with a gravy, some butter, or add a sauce) would be binding, it is a resort, very convenient,” says Meijer. “You can take the pot with one hand and with the other hand and with a hand blender or a whisk.”
