My primary use for this pan is frothing milk. It is one-half of the least expensive express maker in the world. I brew the espresso in a little stovetop Bialetti pot. While it is working up a head of steam, I pour milk in this little guy and whisk over another burner. In no time I have foam and hot milk for a latte. It is easy for a right-handed person like me to pour without drips or spills. This all takes very little time.
It's also handy for sauces, melting butter, etc. Right now it is half-price and it's very tempting to buy a bunch as gifts.
