Not only do The Kitchn’s readers love Le Creuset, but our staff does too. Executive Lifestyle Director Lisa Freedman has owned this PRO fry pan for five years now and says it still works as good as new. “I’m always convinced that this is going to be the weekend that my eggs start sticking to the pan. And yet, they never do,” she wrote in her review. It’s dishwasher-safe (Lisa-approved) and nonstick — what more can you ask for?
