Saucepans with good lips...

Any recommendations for stainless saucepans with a lip that seems to pour well? When making buttercream, I just can't use my All Clad because it dribbles all over the effing place. When shopping around, salespeople think I'm a freak when I ask if I can put some water in a pan to see how well it pours...I do the same when buying a teapot...if it isn't going to have a clean pour, I just don't want it! Same with a saucepan. I guess the lip can't be too thick, which is why the All Clad sucks in this regard.

Anyone?

Thanks!

Thanks, Kerry. I'll go check that out.

I actually don't mean that I need a little pouring lip, just a pan with a rim that doesn't dribble.

Hate the dribbling.

For home use, I like the TFAL brand (it's nonstick). At work, I have one or two Bourgeat saucepans, and a similarly heavy pan that looks a lot like the Bourgeats but I got them at a rest supply store and can't remember the brand.

They don't dribble...

Le Creuset's stainless clad line has a great pouring lip. My Demeyere Sirocco saucepans pour beautifully, but they're a little expensive if you just need a pouring lip.

Kit,

If you are looking at fully clad stainless pans, check out the Calphalon Tri-ply pans, LeCreuset tri-ply pans, Henckels pans, Cuisinart Multi-Clad pans, Anolon Advanced Clad, or Gourmet Standard tri-ply pans.
