The Signature Frying Pan is an excellent choice for all sorts of day-to-day cooking tasks, including browning and searing. Crafted from our iconic cast iron, it distributes heat evenly and seals the outside of your food quickly. The result? It locks in moisture, nutrients and flavours for memorable dishes that delight. Its ergonomic helper handle allows for better grip, while the stay-cool wooden handle has been redesigned for comfort. Additionally, an integral hook allows the pan to be hung up.
Use this great-looking pan on any heat source, except in the oven. Keep it out of the dishwasher and do not use directly under a grill/ element, to preserve the handle.
Great tasting food: the cast iron construction retains heat for even cooking and browning. Your delicious creations will also stay warmer at the table for longer. Traditional looks: The wooden handle looks stylish and stays cool to the touch. A helping hand: The helper handle means it's easy to lift and move between your hob, oven and table. Not too hot: cook with a steady, low to medium heat to take care of your cast iron and enjoy delicious results. Ages gracefully: the enamel interior develops a natural patina that will behave like a non-stick surface. Its finish also has great food release properties with less seasoning required. Clean the product only with water so that the patina can be developed. Best in class: our products are crafted from the finest materials in facilities around the world, ensuring the quality you expect from Le Creuset.
Before First Use
Enjoy unboxing your new purchase! (And make sure to remove the labels and packaging.) Wash your Le Creuset product in warm, soapy water; then rinse and dry thoroughly.
Stay protected – always use oven gloves when handling anything hot. We recommend using Le Creuset Silicone Tools or wooden/heat-resistant plastic tools. Metal utensils may be used with care but they should not be used harshly or scraped over the cooking surface as this may cause damage
Use the product on the most appropriately sized hob ring — it’ll make your food cook more evenly, and reduce the risk of damage to the handles and sides. This is especially important on induction hobs: if you use the wrong-sized ring, there’s a risk the hob won't ‘recognise’ the product.
Cooking on a medium or low heat gets the best results — even for frying and searing. Let the product heat up gradually for great tasting food that’s cooked evenly. If you do need to use a higher heat, lower the setting once the desired heat has been reached. Never slide the product on any glass-topped hob/stove top, as this may cause damage to the product base and the glass. Instead, always lift the product on and off, or across the surface.
Cleaning Wait for your product to cool down before you start cleaning it.
Wipe any leftovers off the base and sides of the product. If there’s food stuck on, fill the product with warm, soapy water and let it soak for 15 to 20 minutes before washing as usual.
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or metal, harsh abrasive or very stiff cleaning pads or brushes on any of the surfaces.
