Cast Aluminium Saucepot 5 "fabulous !" Mrs GRIFFITHS 20 January 2017 I have two of these - one for my home kitchen and one for my caravan. I wouldn't want to be without them, they're amazing. And now I'm ordering a third. I don't find that the handle gets hot - not at all but then again, you wouldn't have the heat turned up high beneath a sauce in any event. Perfect for making large quantities of a gravy, cheese sauce or any sweet sauce and the depth of the pot means that sauces can be whipped whilst cooking and don't splash or spill over the top. Wonderful piece of kitchen equipment.
