Inspired by nearly a century of culinary craftsmanship, Le Creuset's Signature collection is an evolution of its enameled cast-iron cookware. Seamlessly blending classic form with the latest ergonomic innovations, this deep sauté pan is a versatile, kitchen mainstay.

  • 4 1/4-qt. cap.
  • Shallow enough for high-heat searing and sautéing yet deep enough for slow-cooking.
  • Optimized for steady, even heat, Le Creuset's improved enamel interior resists staining, dulling, and wear and tear.
  • Enameled cast-iron construction boasts superior heat-retention and requires no additional seasoning.
  • Improved ergonomic, composite knob resists temperatures up to 500°F and provides a sure grip.
  • Dishwasher safe for fast, convenient cleanup.
  • Made in France.
Dimensions & More Info

Additional Information

  • Made in France.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super pan.... best fry, I have had this pan 35 years... the blue is a bit discolored with burn on's but the interior is perfect....This is my go to for fish, Steaks.. ( quit Grilling because the pan exceeds what I can do. Yea its not cheap but you get what you pay for. The high walls cut spatter and help conserve heat.....Easy to clean, However I would never put it in a dishwasher as over time the cooking surface becomes "non stick" Just use hot water and a sponge with a tad of soap rinse and heat to dry.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so functional i use this pan for everything. so functional. worth every penny

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from awkard design I have used this pan several times since getting it. it performs well with frying and making stews However, the fit, finish, and color is not as good as my other LC pans. I still cant get the LC sticker off the pan so am using it hoping it will come off eventually. the capacity and dimension is perfect for what I wanted. however, it is super heavy for the type handles it has. the thin longer handle is ok for lifting. the stubby helper feels way too small for the weight of the pan. its awkward moving it around. I would have preferred the handles from a dutch oven since they are easier to use on heavy cookware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional! I bought the white color and absolutely love it. Great size too! Heavy as expected but it doesn’t bother me at all. Another beautiful to my Le Creuset collection!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pan of them all! We have owned this pan for 20 years now. Purchased at WS for full price and the blue color we bought isn't even available anymore, that's how old it is. I have many LC pieces and love them all but for some reason, this one is the one I reach for for most things! It is just perfect. The low sides and high domed lid allow perfect roasting of meats and then braising and performs beautifully for pastas and stews as well. You really can't go wrong. We have definitely gotten our money's worth and then some!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Day Use The description says it's 5 inches deep, but that must include the lid. It's closer to 3 inches in depth which is perfect for everyday use. It's also not nearly as heavy as I was expecting. I can easily lift it up and down from the top of fridge where we store it. It's become our go to pan for nearly everything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVORITE PAN!!! I have many Le Creuset pans, but this one is my favorite. Love the depth and shape of this pan. Great to braise a tri-tip roast with plenty of room for vegetables and herbs. Holds a lot. This is a wide pan which is great for many things. Probably the most versatile pan I own. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this the day I got it... and the next three consecutive days. It is my go-to pan for sauteeing and braising. Le Creuset never disappoints. Worth the price because I don't expect to be replacing it every other year like my previous non-stick saute pans.

    Tee25: How well does this pan roast chicken, beef or pork roast? Does the skin on the chicken get well done and crispy? Is it too shallow to be used as a roaster?

    Asked by: Tee25
    Hi Tee25, As the diameter of this pan is only 12", you can hold a small chicken, beef or pork roast. In order for the skin on the chicken to get crispy, do not use the lid on the pan while roasting. We suggest placing a small roasting rack in the pan to elevate the chicken so that air can circulate beneath it for fast, even roasting. The pan is 3.5" high so that should be sufficient for roasting in it. Here is a small roasting rack option:
