  • The right pan is key to sautéing – use a heavy-bottomed sauté pan with curved edges.
  • Because sautéing is done over high heat, you need to use a fat with a high smoke point, like canola oil, ghee (clarified butter), or vegetable oil. Olive oil is not a good fat for sautéing because of its relatively low smoke point.
  • Get your pan hot before you add your cooking oil.
  • Practice makes perfect in mastering the sautéing motion – don’t get discouraged!
