This Le Creuset 3-ply frying pan offers you ultimate convenience combined with the well-known Le Creuset quality. The pan has a diameter of 24 cm, has an extremely strong non-stick coating and is made from forged aluminium which guarantees an optimal distribution of the heat. In addition, this means that this pan is a lot lighter than, for instance, cast iron, which makes it easier to use. The handle is made from cast steel and attached with stainless steel rivets. An ideal pan for frying, roasting and preparing delicious dishes!
Materials and construction
The pans from the 3-ply collection are comprised of a three layer system called 3-ply. Two outer layers of stainless steel with an aluminium core. This sandwich construction is used throughout the pan, from the bottom to the rims. As such you will have a fine heat conduction and heat zones are prevented. Because of this construction the pans quickly respond to changes in temperature that occur on the stove. Say goodbye to burnt dishes and hello to delicious and perfectly cooked food.
Use and maintenance
Le Creuset pans are extremely solid and can be enjoyed for generations to come. Whether you are cooking on induction, gas or something else, it doesn’t matter. The pan can even be placed in the oven, if it fits that is. To prevent the non-stick coating from damaging we advise you to use utensils made from wood, silicone or plastic. Metal utensils can be used carefully but should never scratch the surface of the pan. Also never cut food inside the pan or tap metal utensils against the sides of the pan as it can lead to scratches and it can damage the non-stick coating.
Always match the pan base size to the hob heat zone it is to be used on. Gas flames must always be confined to the base area and never extend up around the sides of the pan. Always clean the pan after using it. Food or grease left behind can, in the long run, damage the non-stick coating. You can wash the pan by hand, but it also dishwasher-proof. However, keep in mind the fact that putting the pan in the dishwasher might affect the non-stick coating and the finish.
The history of the Le Creuset pans
The basis for the success of the Le Creuset pans was forged in 1924 at the exhibition in Brussels. Armand Desaegher (cast iron expert) and Octave Aubecq (enamel expert) combined forces and decided to establish a company together. It turned out to be a golden combination and ever since 1925 they have been conquering the world with their Le Creuset enamelled pans.
Throughout the years Le Creuset has continued to modernise. Every single time the designers went back to the drawing board where they came up with new designs, models and colours. Le Creuset pans are simply very good. The name Le Creuset is synonymous with excellence and innovation. Whether you are looking for a casserole, grill pan, frying pan, or sauce pan: you can’t go wrong with Le Creuset.
