Le Creuset's Tri-Ply Stainless Steel cookware features a commercial grade three layer construction: a full aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of premium quality stainless steel. The aluminum, heat responsive core, extends all the way up the sides of the pan, providing even heat distribution and eliminating scorching and hot spots. Even heat distribution allows for a variety of cooking techniques, such as searing, sauteing and pan frying. The outer layer of stainless steel is infused with titanium to resist discoloration and is magnetized, ensuring compatibility with all types of cooktops, including induction*. The inside layer is made of surgical-grade stainless steel for a safe and stable cooking surface.Le Creuset's stainless steel cookware all have rolled, sealed and polished, precision-pour rims that allow for clean, convenient pouring, directly from the pan. The magnetic steel exteriors are polished, but very slightly brushed to resist finger prints and the stainless steel rivets provide exceptional durability to the handles and lids. The lids are beautifully embossed with Le Creuset's iconic three ring design. Each self-sealing lid locks in moisture and flavor, while a relief vent releases steam and helps prevent boil-over. Crafted from the same premium grade stainless steel as the lid and handles, the easy-grip knob is secured to a welded post and is oven safe up to 500°F. The knob's signature design lets it rest evenly on the countertop, allowing the lid to double as a spoon rest or prep surface. Their proprietary steel blend resists pitting and scorching to maintain its luster over time. *The stainless steel teakettle is not compatible with induction cooktops.Additional Information
