1. Bialetti Aeternum “Fabio Signature Series” Ceramic Deep Sauté Pan
Fabio partnered up with the popular Italian cookware brand to release this "very versatile pan" stateside. "It’s deep enough to cook pasta, and [you can] sauté chicken in the same pan.” The extra thick aluminum base and beautiful white nonstick ceramic interior marries form and function.
“You don’t need much else if you have a quart of chicken and a Vitamix to make soup,” Fabio tells us. This heavy-duty appliance has five pre-programmed settings that make it easy to prepare hot soups, frozen desserts, smoothies and purées.
