Le Creuset Les Forgées pans, made from forged aluminium
Le Creuset TNS: the updated Les Forgées pans
The incredibly popular Le Creuset Forgées pans were updated! A new box and an extra-strong non-stick coating. That is why Le Creuset decided to update the name as well! The new name is Le Creuset TNS. TNS stands for Toughened Non Stick. The same design, the same materials and still easy to use and clean. The only thing that changed is the name!
This has the distinct advantage that it will never bend or lose shape. In addition, aluminum has great heat conductivity and is extremely light in weight. Encased in the bottom surface there is a steel disk. Because of this, Le Creuset Les Forgées pans are suitable for all kinds of different heat sources, including induction. The hardened, PFOA-free non-stick in the pans ensures easy cooking and effortless cleaning.
Materials & construction
The forged aluminum of the Le Creuset Les Forgées pans ensures optimal heat distribution. The steel disk in the bottom surface makes it suitable for all different heat sources. The handles are made of cast-steel and riveted with stainless steel nails.
Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick
Major advantage of the Les Forgées series is that all pans have the Toughened Non-Stick-non-stick coating. This is PFOA-free, which means that it contains no teflon. The result is a hardened, better non-stick coating that can handle heat higher temperatures. These pans can be used on all heat sources, including induction and the oven (up to 260 degrees Celsius, 220 with lid). In addition, they can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
