The perfect saucier for whisked sauces (e.g. bechamel)

I know the interior has to be stainless and the sides should curve at the bottom. Any specific suggestions?

This? Wondering if 2 1/2 quarts is too big for sauce. I generally cooking for 2-4.

kltaylor, Calphalon is currently running a sale at all the usual suspects' on their 21/2 qt stainless triply(like All-clad) for about $20. It's a great pan for the money...Jackie

You really need to size the saucier to the amount of sauce you're going to make.

I've found that if you use too big a pan with too little sauce you can end up with real consistency problems.

I use ALl Clad and love them, and yes size matters.
