This Super-Popular Saucepan Had a 1,000-Person Waitlist — But It’s Finally Back in Stock
When a pot has a devoted fan club, you know it’s worth having in your kitchen. That’s certainly the case with the uber-popular Misen Saucier, which had a 1,000-person waiting list — really! It’s been sold out since April and is finally back in stock, so now’s the time to snag one before it inevitably sells out again.
Misen is a direct-to-consumer company that started out making exceptional knives and expanded into stainless steel and nonstick cookware. “The company says it puts LOTS of thought into the design and materials of each piece, considering every last millimeter of a handle and taking months to pick a stainless steel,” says Kitchn’s lifestyle director, Lisa.
If you’re wondering what exactly a saucier is, it’s essentially a saucepan with rounded walls and a wider mouth, which make whisking and stirring easier. Those rounded walls mean there aren’t any corners where food can get stuck and burnt — plus no annoying spots to scrub, making washing it a lot easier.
We’ve touted the marvels of this saucier before, and it even made our list of the best saucepans for most home cooks. It’s available in two sizes — 2-quart ($75) and 3-quart ($85) — and just like everything else in the stainless steel cookware collection, the five-ply saucier boasts top-notch heat conduction and retention, delivering beautifully even cooking. The ergonomic handle will keep the chef comfy and happy, plus it keeps cool while over the stove, allowing for a safe and secure grip. The pan’s high-quality, riveted construction will literally last a lifetime — which explains why it comes with a lifetime guarantee. There’s also a 60-day test drive option, but we have a feeling you won’t want to send it back after experiencing it in action.
The epic waiting list proves the Misen saucier is a must-have. One customer review raves, “The 3 qt saucier is absolutely perfect on my gas stove. Clean up is effortless too. Lid and pot handle stay cool, regardless of how long on the heat. Great looks, quality. Wish I would have had this pot years ago!” Don’t make the same mistake — because once it sells out, you might have to wait a lot longer.
