If you love cooking with cast iron, the Le Creuset Cast Iron Saucepan is just for you. Choose a large saucepan for making soups, stews and rice dishes, or a small saucepan for brewing chai, heating stock and making porridge. A well stocked kitchen should have at least two saucepans in two sizes, especially handy for those tricky multi-pot dishes.
Le Creuset Cast Iron Saucepans are a joy to cook with, with a solid cast iron construction, low maintenance enamel surface, heavy cast iron lids and stay cool phenolic handles. By retaining and evenly diffusing heat, cooking with cast iron is more controlled and predictable, with slower variations between hot and cold. Bring rough cut meat and vegetables to the boil, turn off the hob, pop on the lid and let the retained heat in the cast iron create a delicious stew. Or ramp the temperature up high and stir fry with a quick, searing heat - enamelled cast iron can withstand very high temperatures. Le Creuset Cast Iron Saucepans feature a sand coloured white enamel interior, a joy to cook with and clean without the limitations of a non-stick surface.
If you crave something more than single purpose, short-lived, everyday pots and pans, Le Creuset Cast Iron Cookware is what you have been searching for. Nothing beats rock solid enamelled cast iron cookware for longevity, ease of use and utterly enjoyable cooking. From a small foundry in Fresnoy-le-Grand, France, Le Creuset have been making beautifully coloured cocottes since 1925 with traditional sand casting methods, and have garnered a devout following all over the world ever since.
Le Creuset Cast Iron Cookware can be used on the hotplate (including induction hotplates) or in the oven, make great serving dishes on the table, and can even be used as a properly sealed storage container in the refrigerator. The enamel surface is easy to clean and resistant to light metal utensil use, although drops, sharp metal tools and other hard impacts will chip the enamel. Le Creuset Cast Iron Cookware is dishwasher safe, however repeated use of the dishwasher over time will dull the enamel, so hand wash when possible.
Le Creuset pride themselves on the wide range of beautiful colours their cast iron cookware pieces come in, but for real individuality their sand casting method requires that each cast is destroyed and recycled after use, so no two pieces are the same.
