Signature Saucepans from Le Creuset are a staple in any kitchen. Use them for both cooking and reheating small portions. The smoothly curved interior and rounded base make it easy to combine ingredients as you stir and whisk. Made from cast iron for even heat distribution and superior heat retention, with a tight-fitting lid to help retain heat, moisture and flavor. The long handle is contoured for a secure grip, and the extended helper handle offers added control. The lid features a stainless steel knob.
Named after the allium fundamental to French cuisine, Shallot is a whisper of color between the palest shades of purple and pink. Le Creuset suggests pairing this delicate next-generation neutral with Meringue or Oyster as you add to your collection. The exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking. The durable, nonreactive interior enamel promotes caramelization, resists staining, and prevents sticking to make cleanup easy.
