All Cristel cooking systems are known for their space-saving features as well as exceptional cooking performance. The Strate collection features a brushed 18/10 stainless steel construction and Cristel's innovative detachable handle system, which allows cookware to be nested for compact storage. Fast heat up time and even heat distribution are hallmarks of the Cristel cooking systems. The covered saucepans are ideal for cooking vegetables and rice and preparing sauces and can also be used with the steamers and Bain-marie. Strate saucepans are sold with a flat glass lid. Handles sold separately.
