Le Creuset French Oven

Ask any experienced cook and he or she will tell you that their favorite dutch oven is their Le Creuset enamel cast iron French oven. If there is only one Le Creuset piece you could own and only one, that should be a Le Creuset French oven also called “la cocotte” (that’s how the French call it)

Take a look at a Le Creuset pot. The colors are deep and vibrant, the interior of the pot is a cream colored enamel and  the outside boasts bright and shiny colors, that look great even in the photos.  Imagine how they will look on your table or pot rack.

But looks are not good enough. Le Creuset’s enamel finish hardly ever chips, scratches of fades. Foods, when cook normally, rarely stick or burn. These pots are hand finished; French artisans employ a 12 step finishing process mostly done by  hand to ensure that there are no flaws or imperfections in the final product.

The dutch ovens or cocottes are perfect for foods that need long and slow cooking such as soups, stews, and braised meats.

Because of their perfect heat retention, a low gentle simmer is easy to achieve.

Use your Le Creuset pots for French cassoulet ( a stew made from duck or mutton and beans), beef stew, chili, a family dinner pot roast or even a good cioppino or bouillabaisse.

It is the finest cookware made in France since 1925.
