Sometimes, a little extra width can go a long way in the kitchen. This is especially true for the 10" - 12" wide stainless steel double boilers. These boilers ensure that there is plenty of room to place contents inside without worrying about running them over the edge or getting them all over the outside of the pot. The 10" - 12" wide stainless steel double boilers make it easy to gently heat ingredients up without a constant need for stirring. The added width means that more of the pan is in contact with the burner and the task can be completed in less time when compared to using a smaller double boiler.
