I tend to geek out when it comes to all things cookware related and immediately make room in my cabinets every time a new style or brand launches. But while I love a good innovation in cookware, I always reach for the classics for everyday cooking. I’m talking, of course, about tried-and-true stainless steel. A good stainless steel pan is practically indestructible and an essential piece in every kitchen. If you’ve been looking to invest in stainless, your timing is perfect, because Le Creuset is having a huge sale on select items from their gorgeous stainless-steel cookware line. Each piece has triple-layer construction with titanium-infused stainless steel on the interior and exterior, and an aluminum core that distributes and holds heat incredibly well. Since the cookware isn’t coated, you won’t have to worry about using metal utensils or getting pots and pans super hot. The discounts are as steep as up to 50 percent off, making this an excellent opportunity to scoop up some timeless items like fry pans, a braiser, and a 10-piece set that has everything a kitchen will ever need. There’s a lot to choose from, but below are a few of our favorites.

Ever wonder why frying pans aren’t a little deeper since, you know, you're frying in them? Le Cresuet’s fry pan has high sides that help contain the inevitable splatter, whether you’re using it for shallow frying or pan-searing. The 9.5-inch size is great for everyday use and small portions, while the larger 12.5-inch pan can be used for multiple servings. A helper handle makes it easy to lift and transport any recipes you want to finish in the oven.

Le Creuset
was $1045.00

If you’re starting from scratch, this set is a serious bargain (47 percent off!) when you consider that it comes with 10 pieces that will have you covered, no matter what you’re making. The set includes a 10-inch fry pan, 2-qt. and 4-qt. saucepans, 3-qt. saute pan and 9-qt. stockpot with a deep colander insert. It also comes with four lids for extra versatility.

Le Creuset
was $185.00

All three sizes (2 qt., 3 qt. and 4 qt.) of Le Creuset’s saucepan are on sale, and there are a few reasons why they’re a great upgrade to your standard version. Namely, the triple-layer construction prevents hot spots and scorching, and Le Creuset’s three-ring lids have a super tight fit with built-in steam vents to prevent overflow on foods like rice or oatmeal. The pan’s rim is also tapered, so you can serve recipes like soup or add stock to recipes without making a mess!

This beautiful casserole is an incredibly versatile piece, whether you use it to cook grains, boil potatoes, make delicate sauces or bake something in the oven. The lid has a stainless steel handle that resembles Le Creuset’s iconic enamel cast iron pieces, as does the overall silhouette, which looks attractive on the stove and even on the table.

Le Creuset
was $62.00

This steamer insert is compatible with any saucepan or stockpot and is a nice alternative to using a bamboo or wire steamer for preparing vegetables, dumplings and more. When placed into a pan, it sits above the waterline so your recipe only gets kissed by steam and not submerged in water. It can also be used as a colander or pasta cooker; just fill the saucepan and steamer with water, add ingredients and lift them out to drain when they’re finished cooking.

Le Creuset
was $250.00

The roomy 5-quart capacity of this braiser makes it ideal for browning then braising meat, fish and vegetables. Since it has Le Creuset's heavy-bottomed triple-layer construction, you can count on it holding heat consistency for even caramelization, and the tight-fitting, domed lid ensures that flavorful moisture doesn’t evaporate during hours-long braises. Two handles make it easy to lift in and out of the oven, even when loaded with heavy recipes.

7 / 7
Le Creuset
was $829.00

Though slightly pared down compared to Le Creuset’s 10-piece set, this 7-piece set still includes three essential pots (with lids) and a pan, so you'll be able to prepare a wide range of recipes, even if you have limited storage. Included in the set is a 10-inch fry pan, 2-quart saucepan, 3-quart saute pan and 7-quart stockpot. Whether you’re pan-frying scallops, steaming quinoa, braising chicken breasts or boiling corn, you’ll have everything you need!
