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 saucier’s smooth, flared sides promote efficient stirring and constant movement, making it the ideal pan for saucemaking. The larger 3.5 quart size adds a helper handle for extra stability. Best of all, the rounded shape makes clean up easier!
