Available in a variety of colours to match your collection or kitchen, each pan features a phenolic handle, which is oven safe up to 190 degrees Celsius.The inner cooking surface is satin black enamel, which seals in juices creating a succulent and tender meal. The uniform heating of cast iron ensures completely even cooking across the pan surface. The assist handle allows for easy lifting and all frying pans are dishwasher safe. Glass lids are available to match (not supplied).Fired at temperatures of 840 degrees Celsius, the smooth enamel finish of Le Creuset cast iron is durable and hygienic. This means that everything you stew, braise or simmer in a Le Creuset piece will taste just as good as you intended. It also means your dishes will keep looking good from the hob to the oven and from the oven to the table.

About Le CreusetA lifetime spent crafting the finest cookware. Le Creuset has been making superb, award winning cookware since 1925 and the secret recipe of ingredients remains the same today. Each piece is made from a unique mould into which molten iron is poured from a large cauldron (called a creuset). This creates a unique piece, each with its own identity and style. The piece is then hand finished and subjected to strict quality checks. Finally the cast iron is enamelled at extremely high temperatures to create the vibrant lustre and hard finish which looks great in the home.
Cast Iron Satin Black FactsSatin black enamel can be found on our omelette and frying pans, grills, Grillit, woks and tagines.Satin Black enamel has a smooth feel to it, but it is not as glossy or smooth as other lighter enamel finishes. It has been especially designed for higher "surface" temperature cooking - which is not the same as simply using a piece on a high heat. With cast iron, higher surface temperatures can be achieved by allowing any piece to heat through evenly on a medium setting.Satin black enamel will keep its good looks and allow a 'patina' (a brownish black film) to build on its surface with continued use. A patina is the result of the oils used for cooking, as well as the natural oils and fats from foods, baking on to the hot surface. The patina should not be cleaned off as it enhances the cooking performance and the release of foods. It also allows reduced amounts of surface oiling.With the higher surface temperatures achieved during frying, grilling and searing, some elements in the food i.e. sugars and enzymes, cause caramelisation to take place on the outside of the food, This not only aids the retention of moisture and flavour, but also produces the delicious sear lines on grilled meats or fish, or the slightly crusty exterior on a seared steak.

In spite of using this pain for other tasks for over a year, I remain unable to fry an egg in it without scrambling it, no matter how carefully I build the heat, no matter how much or how little oil is applied. I'm not a professional cook, but I'm the main cook for our house and I'm far from a slouch in the kitchen. Those of you who scoff "you just aren't doing it right", are welcome to buy this pan from me as I'm sick of the sight of it.
I wouldn't recommend this frying pan to anyone, I consider it a kind of kitchen-folly that's nice to look at but ultimately a waste of money. I will be buying something else shortly and suggest you do the same.
