The asparagus pot is too small for the back burner on my stove.  The Fissler is not at all too big but it is heavy.  I don't think I ever said too heavy.

 

OK, good luck.

My DW and I will be celebrating a significant anniversary next month. She suggested that giving me a new knife or a nice pan would bring her pleasure. I've looked at knives and nothing zinged my strings. So I have started looking at pans.

 

Pan one:

 

Demeyere Silver7 Covered Sauté Pan 5 qt  https://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-2756047/Demeyere+Silver7+Covered+Saute+Pan?cat=TCA-257761_Saute+Pans

 

Pan 2:

 

All-Clad Copper Core Saucepan 4 qt   https://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/all-clad-copper-core-saucepan/?pkey=call-clad-copper-core&isx=0.0.1254

 

 

I hope to add a couple of additional choices but for now this is what I have.

 

Thoughts on either of these pans?

 

ETA things in my kitchen MUST be dishwasher safe. This is an absolute.

I would not put that All-Clad in the dishwasher.

 

(And yes I see that WS says it is dishwasher safe.)

IMO, the Demeyere wins by a mile.  You might also consider a Demeyere Proline 5* skillet.  The newest ones are completely sealed for dishwasher use.

Because of the exposed copper.

 

Thank you. It's off the list.  I've substituted the d5.
