The saucepan is a cornerstone of any kitchen. With laser-etched interior capacity markings that make measuring easy, the Le Creuset stainless steel saucepan is perfect for preparing sauces and side dishes. The self-sealing lid locks in moisture, while a relief vent releases steam to prevent boil-over.Le Creuset’s premium stainless steel reflects the same European craftsmanship and character that has defined Le Creuset cast iron for decades. Le Creuset tri-ply stainless steel features a full aluminum core that extends up the sides of the pan and all the way to the rim for full, quick, and even heat distribution. It’s bonded between two layers of professional-grade stainless steel for a pan that’s durable and resistant to discoloration over time.
