It is an ideal surface for healthier cooking with very little oil or fat.. Optional heat-resistant glass lids are available to buy separately. Handles are secured with stainless steel rivets.
Induction Hob Cooking
Always match the diameter of the stainless steel disc in the base of pan to the induction hob cooking zone. Using a pan with a small stainless steel disc on too large a cooking zone may result in a weaker magnetic field being created and reduced heat output. In some cases the hob may not “recognise” the pan and no heat will be generated. DO NOT use the boost function for longer than is required to bring the pan’s contents to a boil. The boost function should only be used for rapid heating of large quantities of water e.g. for boiling pasta or vegetables. During cooking, you may notice some slight noise being generated in the pan by the induction hob. This will not damage the pan or affect cooking performance.
Suitable for use in all types of conventional oven (not suitable for microwave ovens). Oven safe to 260°C/500°F (220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7 if the pan is used with a Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick heat-resistant glass lid).
When used under a hot grill there should be a minimum distance of 5cm (2 inches) between the heat source and the top rim of the pan.
Toughened Non-Stick Glass Lids
Add another dimension to your cooking with your Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick pan by using a Le Creuset heat-resistant glass lid – available separately. The see-through glass lid allows you to check the recipe without disturbing the cooking progress or temperature. It retains moisture and flavour and also acts as a self-baster, or converts the pan to one for poaching, braising or casseroling. The lids are oven-safe up to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7.
