Essteele Per Vita is a pleasure to cook with thanks to the solid copper spread across the induction suitable base, resulting in optimum heat control and perfect cooking conditions favoured by the most discerning cooks.

This 26cm/3.7L covered sauteuse is perfect for sauteing, pasta dishes, stovetop-to-oven, sauces, the possibilities are endless.



Made of the highest quality stainless steel, each pan features superior durability and a brilliant mirror finish.



A sheet of solid copper spreads heat rapidly across the base and around the corners of each pan, and heavyweight aluminium discs permanently sealed in stainless steel disperse and retain heat to eliminate hot spots. The result: optimum heat control and induction suitability.



Made from the same high quality stainless steel as the body of the pan, these lids are tight fitting to retain heat, flavour and nutrients.



European designed rim which has a wide, gentle arch for easy pouring and effortless cleaning.





Italian designed and manufactured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essteele per vita Great size for cooking up a big meal in the one pan. You can sear the meat and onions etc before adding in ingredients that take less time, then leave to simmer without the need for more dishes to wash. Essteele pans are solid, heavy pans to use so no sticking and easy to maintain at the perfect cooking temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality speaks... This is the best stainless steel cooking pan I have ever used, easy to say quality Utensil with elegant looks and style. The base is quite thick making it very easy to cook food without being worried about it getting burnt. It's an excellent buy and I will highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over 10 years old & still looks like new This was the first Essteele product we ever purchased (recommended by the lady at David Jones for our gas stove). We have had it now for over 10 years and it still looks like new and polishes up beautifully with the essteele paste. One of the best kitchen investments we have ever spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have come to love the per vita range I really like the two Essteele Per Vita pots we have so I thought I should write a review - and I will probably put this review in a couple of places if possible. About a year and a half ago it was time to replace our large non-stick pot and I was keen to move away from using non-stick coated cookware. I purchased an Essteele 28cm (5.2litre) sauteuse pan/pot and an Essteele Per Vita 26cm large casserole pot (it has curved sides - Essteele don't seem to make them anymore which is a shame). These two pots are the absolute work horses of my kitchen. I LOVE them (and I don't regret moving away from non-stick at all). They are durable, easy to clean and relatively light weight. The guidelines on this site ask reviewers not to mention competitors, so I won't be too specific however, I feel compelled to compare these pots to another style of pot (ceramic coated cast iron dutch oven) which I also purchased at the same time as the two Essteele ones. I do like the dutch oven however, it is heavier, doesn't seem to distribute the heat as well (sometimes get burn patches in the centre) and requires one to be considerably more gentle when cleaning to avoid chipping the ceramic. I am glad I have the dutch oven however, I I was forced to get rid of one of the three pots mentioned, it would be the first to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Per Vita This pot is fantastic. I use it a lot. It keeps temperature and heats slowly so the food doesn’t burn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cookware Have had this pot for a few months now, its great, sturdy and easy to clean. It's a bit on the heavy side but I guess this adds to the sturdiness.
