John Lewis Classic Chef's Pan and Lid, 26cm

Product information

This classic chef's pan is constructed of premium grade 18/10 stainless steel, providing better protection against rust or acid corrosion and incredible durability.

The pan features a 360° stepped non-drip pouring rim which helps prevent liquids boiling over.

The stay cool handles with built-in lid rests help keep stove and counter tops clean.

The 6mm thick aluminium sandwich base provides excellent heat distribution, retention and no hot spots. The pan is suitable for all hob types including induction.

Getting the most from your induction pans
All of our John Lewis induction pans are tested to the British and European standards for safety and performance. To ensure the functionality of induction pans, it is important to make sure the magnetic circuit with the hob isn’t broken by:

  • Making sure the size of the pan base is no smaller than the hob ‘ring’
  • Using pans with a flat base
  • Not lifting the pan off the hob top continuously
  • Giving coated and aluminium pans with steel bases more time to heat, as the aluminium sides do not heat directly from the hob

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it I have had JL pans for years so when I was looking for a replacement for another make I chose this. I am delighted with my choice it fits in beautifully with my others and is a dream to use and to wash. Despite my others being over ten years old they still look new so fit together superbly. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New to Induction Cooking I chose this pan with its lid to replace something similar when I moved to a house which had an induction hob. The pan is well made and not too heavy and it suits me just fine. I am pleased with my purchase. 06 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Replacement pan I'm hoping that this pan will last for longer than the previous one which I had to return after two years as the inside was very badly stained. There was no problem with exchanging it as the Sales Assistant could see that I had looked after it extremely well, however because you are not allowed to use any scouring pad on the non-stick interior, it was proving extremely hard to keep it clean and it looked like there was food 'baked on' to the interior surface. Anyway, I now have a brand new replacement so only time will tell 22 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! If you can get excited about a saute pan then I am. I have been looking for a high-sided and non stick pan for ages. This pan is ideal for all types of cooking. I have used it most days since receiving it in the post. 03 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handle does not heat up Great size and the handle does not heat up. We have a ceramic hob and have had no problem. 08 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Multi purpose Pan Decided on this in preference to a frying pan and find the added versatility of being able to cook Chilli , curries etc really useful. This supplements our started set of 3 saucepans. This range looks good and is easy to clean 10 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great size! A great pan for those times when you are feeding lots of people! I also like the fact that the handle does not heat up and remains fairly cool. 08 February 2012
