Tramontina Saute Pan Review

For the past few weeks I’ve been using the 10″ Tramontina saute pan on my ceramic glass stove. The porcelain enamel nonstick cookware pan is part of the Ease of Use Commendation program by the Arthritis Foundation. All of the products in the Ease-of-Use Commendation program have been rigorously tested in an independent scientific lab and have all been proven easy to use for people with arthritis and physical limitations.

I followed the directions for initial cleaning and seasoning of the pan. Right away I noticed that the grips were both soft and texturized for even better grip. No matter what I cooked, I didn’t have any problems with the food sticking to the pan while cooking. I cooked multiple dishes in the pan and often times let the pan sit, dirty for 1-2 days(part of prioritizing how I feel with cleaning). Even after the residue was fully dried in, it still washed off easily. In fact, most of the residue came off when I used the sprayer head on my faucet using hot water. What was left, easily came off with soap and hot water. The only exception was around the round bolts where the handles connect to the pan. I’ve had the issue with other pans, so it isn’t that abnormal. The manufacturer says it is dishwasher safe, so that is always an option too.

While using the pan both The Helpful Hubby and I agree that something about it seems easier to hold, tilt and drain the pan. We believe it to be from the shape and angle of the comfortable handle. This is quite a statement, considering we’ve owned many pans with similar features. We always find the extra helper handles (opposite of the main handle) to be helpful, as we both have bad wrists. We only used silicone and nylon cooking utensils and no high heat, but even so, there appear to be a few marks in the surface of the pan. We believe it is a mark in the Teflon coating, but am not sure. Overall, the pan feels a bit lighter than our similar saute pains, but it is also a bit smaller. The 10″ pan probably couldn’t fit all of the things that we cook in it, but I now think having a smaller pan in one’s cooking arsenal is a good idea. They’re easier on your body to use, during every step.

Do you have a favorite pan?
