    Learn more about this Ruffoni

    The chef pan is an essential piece of the kitchen, our very first recommendation for anyone starting their Ruffoni collection. Renowned as the ultimate risotto-making cookware, its versatile size and shape make it a real workhorse you’ll reach for every day for pasta sauces, soups, sautéed vegetables and even stews. Its decorated lid will help you keep the kitchen splash-free, in style.

    Made with best-in-class clad stainless steel: a thick core of super conductive aluminum alloy guarantees great responsiveness, ensuring food will not burn or overcook. The inside is lined in brushed stainless steel, practical and easy to clean, whilst the external stainless steel layer is induction-ready and hammered by our master artisans to ensure lasting beauty. The stainless steel handle is decorated with delicate leaves and the lid is crowned by a cauliflower and carrot shaped knob, silver-plated by our partner silversmiths in Milan.

    Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Chef's Pan

    There's a reason they call it the "Chef's" pan: taller than a frying pan, but lower than a stockpot, with a wide opening and gently rounded sides, this shape is a cookware wonder, the perfect tool for infinite recipes.

    Sauté vegetables with one hand thanks to the high rounded sides, brown chunks of meat on the wide bottom then simmer gently into rich stews, or toss pasta to coat it with its thickened sauce.

    While practical and versatile, the Chef pan really shines when making risotto: its wide base ensures a steady absorption of broth, so that all flavors are absorbed while water evaporates quickly, and the rounded sides ease stirring and prevent stubborn grains from getting stuck in the corners. Explore combinations of flavors, from porcini mushrooms and truffle to seafood, all kinds of cheese and vegetables.

    Choose this convenient kitchen workhorse for a novice home chef's present or treat yourself: it's the perfect starting point for a copper collection that will grow over the years!
