Ever wish that the oatmeal you're making or the sauce you're simmering would thicken just a little bit faster? The problem is not with your stove or the state of the universe, but with the tool you're using. Rather than pull out a saucepan, you'll require a saucier, a pan used in classic French cooking that, as the name suggests, is specifically designed to prepare a slew of sauces.

Lucky for you, Misen, the affordable online cookware brand, just brought back its popular saucier that once touted a thousand-person waitlist. Misen's saucier boasts rounded walls with a wide opening that allows for easy stirring and whisking. Unlike a saucepan, the saucier's sloped sides speed up the evaporation rate, meaning liquids will ultimately reduce at a faster pace, plus there are no corners for food to get stuck and burn. When you prepare sauces like béchamel and pastry cream, a saucier efficiently moves everything along.

The 2- and 3-quart saucier is constructed out of 5-ply stainless steel and aluminum, offering strong heat conduction and even heating throughout. It's finished off with an ergonomic handle that feels comfortable and stays cool in your hand, no matter the temperature of the burner. Plus, it's suitable for every kind of stovetop, including gas, electric, and induction.

To buy: Misen 2-Quart Saucier, $75 at

Misen shoppers are incredibly impressed by the saucier, and it's earned hundreds of five-star ratings from customers who call it the "best saucier ever" and "top notch." One reviewer mentions how much she likes the versatility of the pan, using it as a sauce pan, mini wok, and soup pot.

"Purchased the 3-quart saucier previously and enjoyed cooking with it so much I decided to add the 2-quart pan," one five-star reviewer says. "The material, shape, and depth produce fast, consistent heat. These have replaced our traditional pans for everything, not just sauces."

"I was looking for a medium-sized pan where I can whip up soups [and] Indian dals for a family of three," another user says. "This saucier just fit the bill. Just opening the box, you could tell the thought process, the design considerations, and the quality of craftsmanship that went into it. Things like [the] handle sizing, internal contours, thickness of the walls, finish, weight balance—everything is just perfect! I'd recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat."

Head on over to Misen and shop the 2- and 3-quart sauciers starting at just $75.
