Featuring high, rounded sides, this traditional French country pan excels at sauteing, simmering, deep-frying and stir-frying. Constructed of 99% iron with no chemicals or coatings added, this pan has a beeswax finish for a naturally stick-resistant surface. Made of 99% iron, a natural mineral material. Organic beeswax finish-denoted by a "B" in the pan's center-protects pan against oxidation, helps in the seasoning process and improves nonstick quality. With use, the pan darkens and develops a naturally nonstick surface, and the "B" in the center will disappear. Allows high-heat searing to seal in food flavors, juices and nutrients. Safe for use on all heat sources, including induction. Triple-riveted steel handle. Made in France.
