    This induction saucepan is fast at boiling water and easy to pour from. But it’s heavy.

    Baccarat pans

    Pros

    I have the set, they are fine but hard to tip sideways because of the handle shape. Flat lids are convenient to store. I prefer my scan pan frypan.

    Cons

    The handles are too narrow and pointy at the bottom, I prefer my scan pan handles by far.

    Recommend it?

    Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

    Baccarat Saucepans

    Pros

    I bought 3 when they were on special and have since bought a frying pan. What I like about the saucepans is that when something does 'catch' on the bottom it's very easy to remove, no scrubbing involved.

    Cons

    As the review says, they are heavy and that's the only downside. However I'm very happy with mine, just hope in my 70's that they aren't too heavy!

    Recommend it?

    Yes, I recommend this product.
