Excerpt from Pots and Pans - Bring Them On :
SAUCEPANS, and SAUCE POTS are round pots which branch out into many varieties. Key identifying points of this category are high, straight sides and a flat bottom. Saucepans have many uses, from heating a can of soup to making a sauce, with an infinite number of foods in between. A WINDSOR saucepan starts out as an ordinary piece of cookware but has sloped sides. A SAUCIER has rounded ones. Both provide increased exposure; sauces are reduced more quickly and it is easier to whisk food away from a round surface. Heat-responsive materials such as lined copper or stainless steel with a copper core are commonly used in the fabrication of saucepans. Saucepans come in a variety of sizes and most come from the factory with a tightly fitting lid. Sauce pots are similar in appearance to Dutch ovens and have one long handle for the smaller pots; the larger-capacity saucepots have a long handle on one side plus a loop handle on the other to help balance it when lifting off the stove.
The WOK is very much like a stir-fry pan except it is designed to rapidly cook bite-sized pieces of food over exceptionally higher temperatures than an everyday pot or pan would require. Designed with either a flat or a rounded bottom, either style can be used over a flame heat source. Cooks with a flat bottom are primarily used on an electric burner, as well as the gas flame. Materials such as stainless steel, cast iron, or metal coated with a nonstick surface are used in the construction of a wok. Like a cast iron skillet, you must remember to oil a cast iron wok before its initial use. Several arrangements of multiple handles are used: one long handle; two short handles, or one long handle in conjunction with a loop handle on the opposing side. Available in diameters from 12 to 20 inches, the cook is to be admired for its myriad functions. As well as the traditional stir-frying, it can also be used to sauté, steam, or deep fry.
