Le Creuset's award-winning stainless steel reflects the same European craftsmanship and character that has defined Le Creuset cast iron for decades. It's three-layer construction is made with a proprietary blend of professional-grade metals: a stainless steel interior and exterior and a heat-responsive aluminum core. The rim is rolled, sealed and polished to protect the internal aluminum layer.
A generously-sized cooking surface with straight, high sides makes the sauté pan perfect for browning, sautéing, shallow frying and cooking down liquids. The walls contain splatters while stirring ingredients or transferring the pan, and the tight-fitting lid keeps heat and moisture inside. An ergonomic stay-cool handle makes maneuvering easy.
