If you wish to cook larger quantities, then you'll definitely also need a pot. Pots are made with two handles for easy carrying and are often used to cook pasta.

Known for their lightning-quick cooking speed, pressure cookers make for the perfect addition to your cookware collection. Pressure cookers use pressurized steam to reduce the cooking times (3 or 4 times faster) of certain foods that take much longer to cook in other cookware. This versatile cookware is ideal for preparing all kinds of recipes, including steamed vegetables, simmered dishes, and even desserts!
Sitram has been specializing in pressure cookers since 1963 and offers a large selection of this cookware.
Made of extremely thick stainless steel, our pressure cookers come in a variety of sizes and are designed with secure closing systems.

Steamers are perfect for making healthy, steamed foods. And with a "rondeau," you can sweat foods, steam vegetables, and make candied chestnuts.

How to choose your cookware
Before creating the perfect cookware collection, there are a few things you need to consider. How do you choose the right size? Which materials are best for your needs? What are the advantages of coatings? Discover all our tips for choosing your cookware here.
The first thing to consider is the size of your household. If you live alone or with a partner, you probably won't need huge pots and saucepans. On the other hand, large families will have to invest in several big pieces of cookware to meet their daily needs.
The choice of size depends on the number of people you cook for on a daily basis, as well as those times when you entertain guests. For a family of 2 to 3, opt for a 1.5 to 2-liter saucepan for everyday meals and a large pot for dinner parties with pasta. The choice of size therefore also depends on the number of guests you entertain. Consider investing in several different-sized pans to be prepared for any situation. Here's another tip: a 4.5-liter Dutch oven is perfect for 4 people.

Cookware is made of several different materials to cater to the needs and preferences of all types of cooks. When it comes to materials, consider the following:
- The primary material of the cookware: the first thing to consider is the material from which the frying pan, saucepan, Dutch oven, or pressure cooker was molded (stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, steel, etc.). Each material has its pros and cons (heat resistance, performance, durability, handling, ease of care and use, etc.). For more information, feel free to check out our Materials Guide.
- The coating of the cookware: while some cookware is left "unfinished" (e.g., 100% stainless steel frying pans), other cookware is sold with an inner coating (e.g., aluminum cookware). These non-stick coatings make saucepans and frying pans easier to clean and use. At Sitram, all our coatings are guaranteed PFOA-free and safe for your health. Visit our Tips section for more information on the coatings used on our cookware.
Check the compatibility of your cookware
Before purchasing any cookware, you must also make sure it can be used on your cooktops. Depending on its primary material, some cookware may not be compatible with certain types of hobs. At Sitram, nearly all our products can be used on all types of cooktops (gas, electric, vitroceramic, halogen, induction). However, you should always check the symbols on the packaging of our products to be sure.
Another thing to keep in mind is that some of our cookware is oven-safe for even greater versatility and convenience. Our lines with removable handles can be used in the oven (the handle is used to insert and remove the cookware). Once again, always check the symbols on the packaging of the product before using the cookware in the oven.
Fixed or removable handle?
Most cookware comes with a fixed handle. However, you can also choose from saucepans and frying pans with detachable handles.
At Sitram, we offer a selection of cookware with a one-of-a-kind removable handle that fits all our saucepans and frying pans. In addition to saving space in your cupboards, this practical handle makes it easier to clean and use your cookware in the oven. See our Use and Care Guide for more information on using your Sitram cookware.
