The stainless-steel interior preserves the taste and nutritional qualities of foods and is easy to clean, while the cast stainless-steel handle stays cool during use. The pans can be used on gas, electric, induction (with a disc), and halogen stovetops as well as in the oven, and they’re handsome enough to use for serving as well. The saucepan and the sauté pan each come with a glass lid. Guaranteed for life against any manufacturing defects. Made in France.In 1830, Ernest Mauviel established his company in a Normandy village called Villedieu-les-Poêles, "the city of copper," which has an 800-year heritage of copper manufacturing. With this rich tradition an integral component of its manufacturing expertise, Mauviel continues to create peerless copper, stainless-steel, and aluminum kitchen essentials for chefs. Coveted by cooking enthusiasts around the world, Mauviel products have even been known to help less enthusiastic cooks learn to love the culinary arts.
