The Stainless Steel Collection from Le Creuset is expertly crafted by European artisans for superior performance. The three layer construction features a full aluminum core bonded between stainless steel. The iconic three-ring design on the lid mirrors the same pattern from Le Creuset’s renowned enameled cast iron cookware. The beautiful, yet functional saucepans feature interior capacity markings for easy in-vessel measuring. The innovative, dripless pouring rim is a welcome addition to the saucepan design. An added feature on the 4 quart pan is a helper handle for easy lifting when full.
