Combining durable modernity with the comfort of tradition, Crane create cookware that brings the excitement, atmosphere and aroma of the professional kitchen to the home cook. A synthesis of science, practicality and beautifully simple design, our cookware has become a perennial favourite for home cooks and industry chefs alike.

Made in France by a foundry established in 1840, every item from the C-Series is manufactured using the highest quality vitreous enamel and sand-cast by hand to guarantee a lifetime of use. The S-Series builds on the same pared-back aesthetic and is made by skilled technicians in England using high-performance tri-ply stainless steel with an aluminium core. 


Naturally free from Cadmium, Lead, PFOAs and PTFEs, Crane pots and pans have a high performance, naturally healthy cooking surface, engineered to enrich flavour and aroma.


Our cast iron pans are made using up to 30% recycled (scrap iron) material. Enamel is made from pure natural materials such as steel, quartz, feldspar, borax, soda ash, clay and potash - making our products 100% recyclable. Enamelled cast iron is long lasting, doesn't produce environmental toxins and its excellent heat conduction properties make it ideal for cookware.
