In theory, you could speed the evaporation up by using a broader pan. But first, as erikadude noted, it depends on the energy pumped into your sauce. If you are on an electric burner with a fixed size, and put on it a pan much wider than the burner, the sauce in the outer parts of the pan will not get hot enough, and your evaporation rate will go up, but not ...

Yes, it can. The issue is the amount of surface area available for evaporation. This will result in evaporative cooling which will result in additional heat being needed to maintain that same temperatre (and thus a simmer), but it does mean that you can reduce things faster by putting them in a wider vessel. You may also be able to speed the evaporation ...

The amount of energy required to evaporate the water stays the same, no matter what the size of the pan is, but a bigger pan could potentially collect more energy since the area in contact with the cooktop would be larger. There is also a larger portion of the water in contact with the pot, making it easier for more energy to transfer to it. This question ...
