The term stewpan originally referred to a copper pan, but the name has been generally expanded to pans made from stainless steel or aluminum. The diameter of a stewpan can vary between 10 cm and 20 cm.
A stewpan can be used to make béchamel and other sauces, chicken broths or stocks, or on a different note, to cook food bain-marie, for instance.
