The Elite Sauté is slightly wider and deeper than the 11” skillet. It includes one long handle to maneuver the pan conveniently and one short handle on the opposite side to help the pan feel balanced (not shaky) and comfortable when moving from stove to oven, or stove to table for serving. Handles stay cool while cooking and maneuvering and are removable for easy storage in a kitchen drawer. 11” skillet inverts over the Elite Sauté as a high dome cover and provides increased height (approx. 3 inches) to cook larger volume foods, like whole vegetables (squash and pumpkin). For even more height, utilize the 7 Qt. roaster as a high dome cover to cook whole chickens or turkeys stovetop.
