No other classic cooking method lets you so perfectly prepare as wide a variety of foods as the simple sauté. The name evokes memories of perfect repasts in elegant little bistros, but the sauté talents extend far beyond the elegant. It is a versatile cooking tool, ideal for lightly frying a variety of meats, poultry or fish. Tightly lidded, the sauté tenderly finishes the cooking process with delicious results.
