Special offer

Product information

This 3 piece saucepan set, 16cm, 18cm, 20cm saucepans with lids, is constructed of premium grade 18/10 stainless steel which provides incredible durability.

The pans also feature a 360° stepped non-drip pouring rim which helps prevent liquids boiling over.

The stay cool handles with built-in lid rest to help keep stove and counter tops clean. Internal water level indicators for easy capacity measurement.

The 6mm thick aluminium sandwich base provides excellent heat distribution, retention and no hot spots. The pans are 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

John Lewis Classic II Lidded Saucepan Set, 3 Piece 4.5 5 38 38
Quality saucepan set Heavy pans, easy clean, love them. Slight minus is the fact that the handles get hot, but then I wouldn't have wanted wooden handles or plastic may have cheapened the look- so I put up with this and use oven gloves!! 10 September 2014
Great Quality Product Bought the 3-piece set with the 16", 18" and 20" pans over two weeks ago and they have peformed excellently. So much so that I've now bought the matching 14" and 22" pans to complete the set. Handles stay cool and the pans have no discolouration what so ever even though they've handled a variety of recipes so far. The lids also stay quite cool as well although obviously a tea towel is a good idea when touching during cooking. They also clean up really well so I'm very impressed and can heartedly recommend. 16 August 2014
Great service Just bought these but delighted. At last "sensible" old-fashioned design with lids that really do enable stacking. No stupid glass lids - they are so terrible! These are stainless steel. Cooked bechamel sauce and cleaned up perfectly. Delivery in less than three days to France? Absolutely brilliant. Very pleased. Good communications throughout too. All in all, after a first experience buying through John Lewis, I can heartily recommend 14 August 2014
Hot lid handles We've had these pans now for a couple of months. Used on an induction hob, their overall performance is very good. The only real concern is the lid handles which get hot and thus you need a cloth to lift lid unless you have asbestos fingers. The handles on the pans themselves stay cool. We also bought the steamer which goes with this range and that is an excellent addition. The only other comment is that we purchased these to replace some 30 year old Le Creuset pans which were very heavy and needed more power to heat; inevitably on first usage it took a little while to get the heat settings right with these new pans to avoid boiling over. Now we have that calibrated all is good apart from the hot lid handles. 28 July 2014
satisfied customer I like my new 3 pan set - because of volume markings inside, the lid handles stick out less than other brands, they stack well, and look really smart and of course they are good pans, sturdy but not too heavy! 15 July 2014
Saucepan Set I Purchased these Saucepans as I have recently had a Induction Hob Fitted. The Quality is Excellent. They Heat quickly on the Hob are easy to Clean. I would highly recommend this Product. 27 May 2014
Good value set of pans Pans arrived in timely manner, well packed. We have been happy with the quality and have been using them on gas hob. They clean easily and the handles/ lid handles are comfortable to hold and use. I think we would buy an even smaller on to suit our family needs but generally the capacity of the pans have suited our standard cooking. 04 February 2014
Major discolouration So disappointed with these, after first use the insides have major discolouration - look horrible and like I have had them for over 10 years. Tried to take back and was told that this is normal and how the stainless steel reacts to boiling water. Well do not buy if you want your nice new shiny pans stay shiny after one use! 26 January 2014
