La Poissonnière

Limited-edition of 500


La Poissonnière was custom designed by Eric Ripert and handmade in the Vosges region of France, where artisans have been crafting pans the same way for centuries. It is Ripert’s favorite fish pan, one he uses nearly every day. Proceeds from each pan sold will support City Harvest’s work feeding New Yorkers in need.

Made In France



  • La Poissonnière is 12.5" long and 9" wide. It is made of carbon steel and has been pre-seasoned in the kitchen of Le Bernardin to make it naturally non-stick. 
  • It’s suitable for all heat sources including induction and will heat up quickly. 
  • It’s very durable so don’t worry about scratching the pan with your cooking utensils. 
  • It features two riveted stainless steel handles, a long French-style curvature handle with art by RF Alvarez and a shorter handle for easy handling and ergonomic grip. 
  • La Poissonnière only gets better with use and its seasoning improves each time you cook with it. The more you use the pan, the more you build your own confidence and your own cooking story with this essential kitchen tool.

Care Instructions


  • La Poissonnière will last for generations.
  • After each use, take care to wipe the pan clean with a dry kitchen towel, like we do at Le Bernardin.
  • Do not put La Poissonnière in the dishwasher. If you must use water, we recommend you hand wash only and avoid soap to keep that beautiful seasoning.
  • Dry La Poissonnière completely of water after washing to avoid rust. Place it on the stove over medium heat to help evaporate any residual moisture.
  • After drying, we recommend pouring a light coating of neutral oil in the pan to help prevent rust. At Le Bernardin we use canola oil.
  • Store the pan in a moisture-free environment.
  • You may need to re-season your pan over time, which is easy to do. Drizzle a thin layer of canola oil to coat your pan and place over medium-high heat until you see the beginnings of smoke in the pan. Be careful that it doesn’t smoke too much.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and allow the oil to cool. Once cool, carefully discard the oil and wipe down the pan with a dry kitchen towel. Place the pan back on the stovetop over medium heat to dry out any remaining moisture, which should only take a few minutes. Remove from the heat and let the pan cool completely.
