A cast iron skillet is a cook’s secret weapon for quick, easy and tantalising dishes. A skillet, an American term for a frying pan, has long been a treasured kitchen staple for stovetop frying and oven baking, with a versatile shape that can be used for everything from searing steaks or fish to baking desserts such as cake or fruit crumble.
Add Le Creuset’s superior cast iron that retains and evenly distributes heat and you’ll find that everything from frittatas to pancakes to veggies really does taste better when cooked in this cast iron skillet.

Like the inside of Le Creuset grills, the skillet is coated with a satin black enamel finish that protects it for high surface heat use and will not wear off. Very durable, hygienic and easy to clean, this cooking surface also helps to achieve the correct sealing and searing of foods, as well as the caramelisation of the juices. The surface is chipping and stain-resistant and over time, a natural patina will develop that is ideal for frying.
Cast iron benefits
The skillet is made of cast iron, a very efficient material thanks to its superior heat retention and even heat distribution, which saves energy and prevents hot spots. Your food will seal very quickly with a delicious caramelized effect while locking in moisture, nutrients and flavours for succulent results. A quick to test to check if the temperature is ready for cooking: throw a little water on the surface; if it stays in the pan without evaporating, it’s not yet hot enough. Be careful of the cast iron handles heating up.
Ergonomic handle and pouring spouts
The ergonomic main handle and easy-grip helper handle provide extra stability when lifting a full pan between hob, oven and table. Spouts on two sides allow for drip-free pours of juices and sauces and the deep sides of this skillet help to keep food splashes in the pan.
Induction compatible and lifetime guarantee
Suitable for use on all heat sources, including induction, in the oven and under the grill, the skillet is available in a wide choice of colours to perfectly complement every kitchen and style. It comes with a lifetime guarantee for complete peace of mind.
