Inspired by nearly a century of culinary craftsmanship, Le Creuset's Signature collection is an evolution of its enameled cast-iron cookware. Seamlessly blending classic form with the latest ergonomic innovations, this deep saute pan is a versatile, kitchen mainstay. 4 1/4-qt. cap. Shallow enough for high-heat searing and sauteing yet deep enough for slow-cooking. Optimized for steady, even heat, Le Creuset's improved enamel interior resists staining, dulling, and wear and tear. Enameled cast-iron construction boasts superior heat-retention and requires no additional seasoning. Improved ergonomic, composite knob resists temperatures up to 500deg.F and provides a sure grip. Dishwasher safe for fast, convenient cleanup. Made in France.
