Saucepans are an important tool in the kitchen, we use them almost every day to whip up a range of different meals. Not all saucepans perform the same, so it’s important they’re made of good quality materials. We've tested them to find out which will work best. Want to find out more? Our saucepans buying guide will help you decide which one you need, while how we test explains what we look for in our test lab.

Our lab test results will tell you which saucepans:

  • perform the best
  • are easiest to use
  • cook evenly
  • are quick to heat up.

Our interactive comparison tool will tell you the real base dimensions of each saucepan so you can match the saucepan to your cooking zone. And our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top. If you're looking for a frypan too, see our frypans review.
