The Kuhn Rikon Hotpan is a specialty cookware pot and holder for fantastic cooking in several sizes to create those chef quality dishes. The Hotpan is a solidly built cooking pot that comes in 1 quart to five quart sizes and has a great double walled lid and melamine holder for keeping food warm and tables safe. The melamine holders come in a variety of colors form plain black or white to colorful blue, red, green and orange.

The Kuhn Rikon Hotpan is a quality 18/10 stainless steel constructed pot that has a unique lid for keeping the steam and flavors inside the pot. The walls of the pot are thick with a super solid heat efficient core on the base for even cooking. The base is about a 1/4 inch thick with its aluminum core for even heat distribution, the sides and polished stainless steel exterior make for easy cleanup and rust resistance.

According to the company the thick bottom works well on conventional gas ranges and electric ranges but I cannot tell you for sure as I only have an electric range. Usually the gas stoves do very well with all cookware and it's the electric ranges and stovetops that make for some picky cooking. I had no problems using the Kuhn Rikon Hotpan on my electric range with its uneven heating elements as a few of mine are not exactly flat with the continued use I have put my stovetop elements through.

The handles on the Hotpan are a nice size to keep out of the way on the stove yet large enough for easy gripping even with cooking gloves or oven mitts on. The handles of both the pan and the lid are made of high heat resistant black phenolic while the holder is made of melamine.

The holder is a large melamine protection for setting the Hotpan in while serving to not only protect your table or other surface but to keep foods warm longer. The air trapped between the pan and the holder will add an extra layer of insulation to keep your food warm while serving at the dinner table.

The unique design of the double walled lid allows for better retention of steam inside the pan as the lid has a lip that forces steam and condensation to drip back into the pan instead of releasing to the room as you cook. This trapped steam and condensation means better cooking with more flavor being trapped and kept in your dishes. For vegetables and other steamed things the vitamins and nutrients are also kept in the food so you enjoy a not only more flavorful meal but a healthier one.

The Kuhn Rikon Hotpan is a great way to prepare meals and I have been using the 3 quart Hotpan for a month now with enjoyment. The Hotpan is a great way to prepare such a wide variety of dishes and meals from sauces and soups to steaming vegetables and cooking pasta. I have really enjoyed cooking sauces like spaghetti sauce as the pan is great for browning the onions and quickly cooking the spices just before adding the sauce for a great tasting spaghetti dinner.

The bottom of the Hotpan with its core of aluminum does allow for great heat dissipation so you have even heating and less chance to burn things. The stainless steel that is highly polished adds an almost nonstick surface to the pan that makes cooking and cleanup easy. I had no problem cooking and simmering dishes like spaghetti sauce and soups for hours for that flavorful cooking almost like a Crockpot.

The large and thick bottom allows for nice even heating so you can have the pot on the stove for hours and cook slowly for soups and sauces or boil quickly for things like noodles and pasta. The pan heats quickly but not so much that burning is a problem like on my large cast iron cookware.

The sides of the Hotpan are straight angles from the bottom so stirring and scrapping is easy with a spoon or spatula and the corners near the bottom are not so small that food gets stuck there. Using a spoon or spatula you can get the food easily out of the bottom corner to stir in the rest of the pot for an even cooking. The pans design is nice for a pot or pan for cooking dishes like sauces and soups and the sizes from 1 quart to 5 quart make a nice variation if you wish to purchase a complete set.

The pan is easy to handle with the larger handles that stay cool even when cooking at higher temperatures like boiling and you can handle them after cooking for hours at low temps or ten to fifteen minutes at higher temperatures. I have used oven mitts when cooking and used them to move the pot around as well as take off the lid and the large and tapered lid handle is east to grip with the oven mitts on.

Cooking with the Hotpan is one thing but serving with it shows the same quality and craftsmanship I have come to expect and enjoy from Kuhn Rikon. The melamine holder is a nice way to not have to search for the trivet or counter protector. The melamine holder has a nice rubber ring on the bottom for a non slip grip on the table or countertop and the pot sits nicely inside.

The area between the pan and the holder allows for a heated air pocket that will help keep the food warmer longer so you have a nice way to keep your dishes warm. The holder does a great job of keeping the food warm and an excellent way to safely serve dishes so you can pass the dish around and serve food easily.

The Kuhn Rikon Hotpan is a fantastic quality cooking pan and does a great job with a wide variety of dishes like sauces, pasta, vegetables and even soups and stews. I tried out a wide variety of dishes from simple things like boiling pasta and steaming vegetables to cooking soups and sauces and found no problems with the Hotpan. The nice aluminum core bottom allows for a nice even heating and the cleanup is very simple with the polished stainless steel.

I highly recommend the Kuhn Rikon Hotpan with its great heat efficient core bottom and melamine holder for a fantastic serving accessory. Check out the Kuhn Rikon Hotpan at their website or wherever they sell quality crafted kitchen cookware.
