The X-Pan shares the same concepts as the X-Series, so it fits nicely into the nesting system. This 8-inch pan is pressed from the same hard-anodized 6063 aluminum we use in the X-Pots, which creates a very light and stiff structure. We’ve further cut the weight down by integrating the handle hinge into a section of the rolled edge and eliminated the rest of the edge that isn’t needed. Rigid, non-corrosive stainless steel handles fold out for use and tuck down for transport. The handles have a heat-resistant silicone grip for non-slip lifting. The 2.8L X-Pot locks inside the 8” X-Pan with a friction fit.
