The Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Saucepan does not require seasoning because of its interior enamel coating. The sand colored interior enamel helps prevent burning and sticking and makes it easy to monitor food during cooking. Cast iron construction provides exceptional heat distribution and heat retention. The gorgeous enamel exterior is long lasting and resists staining, dulling and chipping. The lid is designed with built-in lid stabilizers to provide a secure, no-slide fit. Made in France.
