If we're to take Italian cooking cues from anyone, it's Stanley Tucci. Despite being best associated with the silver screen, the actor has established himself as quite the force in the culinary world – much to the delight of his followers, who enjoy frequent glimpses inside his London kitchen. 

We'd be lying if we said we hadn't already penned a love letter to Stanley's backdrop – from the color on this cabinets (it's Farrow & Balls' Down Pipe, FYI) to his open-shelving that houses a collection of Le Creuset's Dutch Ovens. It seems, however, that this iconic cookware is not the only French-designed piece taking up space in his kitchen. 

Enter Le Creuset's Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 2 Quart Saucepan – one of our favorite kitchen essentials that is a staple of Stanley's cooking videos. And the best part? It's on sale on Amazon right now. 

When investing in a new saucepan, it can be hard to know what you really need to look for. One key factor to consider– and arguably the most important – is whether it has Stanley Tucci's approval, which this saucepan does. But what else do we need to know before investing?

This gleaming stainless steel saucepan is described as an everyday cooking superstar. It is constructed from 3-layers that allow heat to spread evenly and gently for delicious dishes packed with Tucci-approved flavor. 

A modern icon: this feels more than a saucepan. It features the distinctive three-ring design associated with the northern French brand. It also fits seamlessly with any pieces from our already-existing Le Creuset collection (yes, including that timeless Dutch Oven that Stanley also knows and loves, as seen below). 

Aesthetics aside, our eCommerce editor, Laura Honey, notes that this Le Creuset is more than capable of cooking up our favorite recipes. And its power might just surprise us. 

'This saucepan comes with a triple-layer construction – with a full aluminum core for superior heat distribution. Its stainless steel exterior also contains lightweight titanium that will effectively prevent scorching, discoloration, and corrosion at higher temperatures. This is something I never knew I wanted until finding this pan,' Laura says.

'Another feature worth mentioning is that it has ergonomic handles, designed to stay cool, and helper handles that allow for quick, comfortable movement on the stovetop.'

But why stop at the saucepan? We can't help but also add the actor's famous Dutch Oven to our basket. It's what Stanley would surely want, after all.
