This premium 1-quart heavy-gauge cast iron sauce pot prevents caramelization of a myriad of sauces and is gentle enough with even cooking to work with polenta, grits, and baked beans. The iron base and sides distribute heat evenly, and reduce hot spots, keeping even the most delicate sauces from scorching. For the sweet tooth, it is also appropriate for cakes, brownies, and cornbread. Its square shape is made for ease of cooking, and ultimate agreeance with spatulas, and with heating surfaces. With its stylish stone-tumble polished surface for easy cleaning, grippable 300 series stainless steel rod stock spring handle, and coming doubly pre-seasoned with flaxseed oil, this sauce pot is ready to go right out of the box.
