Product information

Le Creuset has been making world-class cookware for almost 100 years. Used by leading chefs and keen cooks around the globe, Le Creuset cookware offers outstanding performance time after time.

Stylish design coupled with superb cooking results feature in the 3-ply stainless steel range from Le Creuset. Its special 3-layer construction ensures an even and efficient spread of heat throughout the entire body of each pan preventing hot spots during cooking. With lots of additional features, including helper handles and capacity markings, cooking with 3-ply stainless steel is easy and pleasurable. Not all stainless steel cookware is the same.The below explains the unique features and benefits of Le Creuset 3-ply stainless steel.

The Le Creuset 3-ply stainless steel range is made using the latest multi-layering technology where stainless steel and aluminium are bonded together to form the special 3-ply material.

A core of aluminium is sandwiched between 2 layers of premium grade stainless steel cleverly combining the cooking benefits of both materials. The aluminium stretches from base to rim, meaning heat spreads evenly and gently throughout the entire pan – not just the base.

Suitable for use on all types of hob, including induction, the pans are also oven safe to 220°c/Gas Mark 7 and are dishwasher safe.Each pan is covered by a Lifetime guarantee

Cooking is both easy and enjoyable with 3-ply stainless steel. Thoughtful touches include capacity markings inside our saucepans and casseroles and an all-round pouring rim to prevent drips and spills.

The professional-style cast handles are attached with stainless steel rivets for a superior, secure fixing and the addition of helper handles* makes lifting pans even easier.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegant and performant saucepans This set of saucepan is really a must for a modern kitchen. The temperature and time of cooking is reduced thanks to the 3-ply stainless steel. The design is beautiful and the side handle quite useful. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I absolutely love it! Nice looking and does the job. You have to rub it with oil first as it says on the instruction. I am looking forward to purchasing more goods from this range and would highly recommend it. Thank you JL for a great customer service. 24 January 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing purchase This purchase has not lived up to my expectations. I have coveted a set of Le Creuset saucepans for years so decided to treat myself in December because there was a price match. Firstly, after purchasing the saucepan set, the price dropped £10 from the price I paid and is still lower, so I am not sure I actually paid the price match cost, then: Despite following the care instructions, I found whilst using the large saucepan for the first time, food stuck to it and it became discoloured after use, then the second time I used it to make a dish containing lentils, they kept catching on the bottom of the pan despite the amount of liquid in the pand and the use of a defuser! The pan has been washed both by hand and has been through the dishwasher, to no avail. I now feel sad, everytime I look at the pan and don't think I will be purchasing anymore. 12 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by smooth base, sturdy, perfect for induction hob These pots are very sturdy with nice shiny handles and lids (the sides are brushed). I wanted pots with smooth base as I found that pots with patterned (raised) base leave marks on our new induction hob and don’t conduct the heat so well. These are perfect as they are completely smooth, don’t leave any burn marks and conduct the heat evenly (even on the sides as the sandwich layer is all around). They are designed to fit into each other very nicely for storage and being able to rest the lid in the wedge between the small handle and the edge of the pan when in use is a genius design idea. The reason for deducting one star is that due to the numerous places where the handles are bolted in one needs to be extra diligent when cleaning them, even with a dishwasher they might need extra attention. Also I am yet to find truly “stainless” steel, I do get some stains at the bottom of the pans though his might be because of the hardness of the water or washing liquid I use (eco friendly). They are rather heavy so you do need both hands when lifting the larger ones or when full of water. This means I now need to buy a free standing sieve. Overall very happy though and will be buying extra for the set. 30 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Le Creuset saucepans plus & minus Excellent quality product, but the large saucepan is heavy & not easy to pour when full. It would be fine for strong arm cooks 14 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Saucepans at an Excellent Price Having already ascertained the quality of these saucepans I was searching the internet to get a good deal. Lo & behold John Lewis beat the rest of the pack. I did not expect it to happen but happen it did. Well done JL 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great set of pans! I am loving my new le creuset stainless steel pans! Not only are they each a perfect size but if you have an induction hob they are brilliant because they induct heat on the sides aswell as the base. They stack perfectly together so don't take up much precious cupboard space and when cooking you can remove the lid to stir contents and tilt it on the side handle rather than put on the worktop and make a mess. Love them. Worth the money. 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Pans! Great set of pans. Bought for use on induction hob to replace ageing non-stick set. Stainless steel seemed the best choice for induction since it heats up quickly, and should be more robust and last longer than non-stick. Pans seem well made, with riveted handles and the thick 3-ply stainless steel make them feel sturdy and substantial, although inevitably this makes them heavier than aluminium non-stick pans. The helper handle helps lifting though, and the main handle is a nice shape and fits nicely in the hand compared to other pans we tried. Fairly easy to clean (by hand, haven't tried the dishwasher), which was one concern compared to non-stick. The lids are stainless steel and fit well, although obviously you can't see inside the pan unlike with glass lids. Another useful feature is that the pans can be stacked inside each other to save space, although you still need to store the lids somewhere. Overall, an expensive choice (although often on discount) and no doubt you're paying a little extra for the brand, but the quality and lifetime warranty help to justify the purchase. Also purchased the 24cm stock pot which is equally good. 10 March 2014
