Le Creuset's 3-ply stainless steel casserole dish is ideal for making all kinds of delicious dishes from chilli to casseroles and soups to stew. The contemporary, stylish design makes the Deep Casserole perfect to take from kitchen to table. The Le Creuset 3-ply Stainless Steel range is made using the latest multi-layering technology where stainless steel and aluminium are bonded together to form the special 3-ply material. A core of aluminium is sandwiched between two layers of premium grade stainless steel cleverly combining the cooking benefits of both materials. The aluminium stretches from base to rim, meaning heat spreads evenly and gently throughout the entire pan – not just the base. Professional-style cast handles are attached with stainless steel rivets for a superior, secure fixing. A close fitting lid retains moisture and heat for efficient and nutritious cooking, other thoughtful touches include capacity markings and an all round pouring rim.
