Essential for successful sauce making, the Saucier features a wide, shallow design and curved side edges to make stirring efficient. Sauces will cook evenly and at the pace you dictate. Use a quick boil for reducing volume or a slow gentle simmer to cook ingredients thoroughly. 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.
