PANS & COOKWARE
Le Creuset TNS: the updated Les Forgées pans
I can hear you think: 'haven't I seen this pan somewhere before?'. Yes that is right. The pans from the TNS-collection namely look a lot like the popular Le Creuset Les Forgées collection. These pans, however, were updated. On the inside and the outside.
Materials and construction
The Le Creuset TNS pan is made from forged aluminium. As such the heat is properly distributed. The pan can be used on all cooking hobs, thanks to the steel disc in the bottom of the pan.The handles looks professional and are secured with stainless steel rivets to make sure you can safely use them. As such you don't have to worry about the handle heating up: because of the hollow inside of the handle it does not heat up quickly.
Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick
An important advantage of the TNS collection is that all pans are enhanced with the Toughened Non-Stick coating. It's PFOA-free, which means that it does not contain any Teflon. The result is a hardened, better non-stick coating that can withstand heat. As such all pans can be used on all cooking hobs, including induction and in the oven (up to 260 degrees Celsius, 220 with lid). They are also dishwasher proof.
You can purchase heat-proof glass lids separately. They preserve moisture and flavour and allow you to check on the dish without lifting the lid and disrupting the cooking process or the temperature.
