The Futura Hard Anodized Handi (Saucepan) is a modern version of the traditional Indian cooking utensil used for flavourful, less-water cooking. Its lid holds water on the top and, on its underneath surface, condenses steam that rises from the food simering in the Handi. The reverse taper of the sloping sides of the Handi permits water droplets to fall directly on to the food inside the Handi – thus making delicious, tender and moist food. The Handi (Saucepan) comes in two versions: with one long and one short handle; and with two short handles. Featuring an induction bottom, this Hawkins Futura Saucepan is suitable for both Gas Stoves and Induction Cooktops. The Hard Anodized surface cookware is non-toxic, non-staining and non-reactive with foods. It is thermal-efficient, heats fast and evenly and is not spoiled by high heat. It is tough and durable, will not tarnish or corrode and will stay looking new for years.
