With a Le Creuset pan, heat not only travels through the bottom, but also up the sides. Its ability to retain heat is a big plus when compared with other pans made from aluminum or stainless steel. To take full advantage, however, it's important to know how to put your Le Creuset pan to optimum use. Always fill it at least halfway. If there's too much space at the top, your ingredients may dry out before they're cooked all the way through.
