The reliable Le Creuset 11-3/4-Inch Iron Handle Skillet in Cherry Red features the signature combination of cast iron and coated enamel to retain and distribute heat evenly. The tough surface resists scratches, stains, and the damaging effects of regular household use. Sloping sides make stirring easy, and also help with rapid evaporation. The skillet sautés, fries, and sears, with an attached cast iron handle and additional helper handle for safety and comfort. Two integrated pouring spouts simplify draining fats and juices. Plus, the satin black interior doesn't require seasoning, absorb flavor or react with acidic foods like ordinary cast iron. Le Creuset enameled cast iron cookware can be used on the stovetop, in the oven and under the grill. Le Creuset cast iron cookware is suitable for use on all heat sources including electric, gas, ceramic, halogen top and induction. All Le Creuset enameled cast iron cookware is coated with the highest quality vitreous enamel. This hygienic, impermeable enameled surface means Le Creuset can be used for marinating food prior to cooking or for food storage after cooking.

Each shape is one of a kind, made from molten steel and cast in a unique mold, and then expertly enameled. No other procedure yields cookware that so evenly distributes heat, browns and caramelizes food to perfection, and creates a masterpiece at the table.
