Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron Deep Skillet

With its deep sides, Le Creuset's enameled cast-iron skillet is well suited to stovetop frying, pan roasting and small oven braises. The handle and helper handle enhance your control and make it simple to take the pan from stove to table. Part of the innovative Signature collection, the pan seamlessly blends Le Creuset's classic form and feel with the latest ergonomic and functional innovations. Heavyweight fry pan requires very little oil, making it an excellent choice for low-fat cooking. Optimized for steady, even heat, Le Creuset's improved enamel interior resists staining, dulling, and wear and tear. Black enamel interior requires no additional seasoning, unlike other cast-iron cookware. New large loop helper handle facilitates lifting the pan and provides a better grip even while wearing oven mitts. Enameled cast-iron construction provides superior heat retention.

In a state of shock
March 17, 2014
I have and love various le creuset pieces. I was waiting to get the cast iron skillet and finally bought it early this month in lapis. You can imagine my surprise and disappointment when after I used the skillet twice, the satin finish was splotchy and the blue enamel faintly showed through in spots. I never used a heat higher than medium in both cooking situations and cleaned out with a soft sponge. I am writing this review to let you know that this can happen and don't toss your packaging until you have used this skillet more than just a few times. I won't stop buying le creuset, but I shall be more cautious! I am returning the skillet.
Cons: lost black satin finish almost immediately

I did want to follow up on this. I returned the skillet and got a replacement. The same thing happened. I checked the internet, and apparently it has happened to a lot of other people. I called Le Creuset to find out what was going on. It appears that those of us who have hard water (and we do) will have this occur with the skillet. Hard water dries out the finish and leaves very ugly splotches. They recommended a very small amount of vegetable oil be rubbed on the finish to keep it from drying out. I followed their suggestion, and the results were miraculous! I am so pleased that I followed through with this!

A Great Deep Skillet!
December 21, 2013
2" wall holds more food and keeps splatter screen from touching food. This is just as great as the traditional skillet. A great sear and deep dish pizza pan. 10" Quince pan looks great on my stove top.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Color, Size, Design
