All-Clad MC2 Saute Pan : Designed for cooking meat or vegetables in a small amount of oil or butter while continuously tossing, stirring, or shaking. The lid lets you finish a dish under cover without changing pans, and the stay-cool stick handle and helper handle make it easy to lift. The 6-quart pan holds up to three ribeye steaks (six servings) for searing; slide pan into the oven to finish cooking, then return to the stove to make a quick au jus or duxelle sauce from drippings, wine (to deglaze), butter, and herbs. The 4-quart pan has the classic design with flat bottom and straight sides, for sauteing, pan- frying, or with the lid for braising. The 3-quart pan is a wonderful multi-use pan for family cooking - searing small cuts of meat, sauteing vegetables, or making a superb veal scaloppine. The 2-quart pan is a terrific small pan for one or two servings, or for browning a handful of mushrooms or a chopped onion. MC2 blends the best of the legendary Master Chef original cookware with a redesigned contemporary look for a roomy sauce pan that warms, simmers and boils to superb perfection.

I've found this to be a great saute. I have some issues with my hands and feel this lighter and easier to handle than the coppoer core. Though the handles are a bit big for my hand they are long enough that the end of the handle rests against my forarm for stability. The brushed exterior is easy to care for. I've found it to heat eavenly. While a bit pricey this pan gives me the best of both worlds...ease of use and even heating with the quality you expect from All-Clad.
