Le Creuset Cookware
Le Creuset cookware has long been a favorite with French chefs. Each one is unique, being cast in a one of a kind mold and then enameled carefully. This cookware distributes the heat evenly and browns and caramelizes food expertly.
The colorful enamel is at once trendy and classic, adding color to the kitchen. It is also energy efficient, so high heat is not necessary. The knobs and handles are phenolic, and safe in the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Le Creuset Cookware Highlights
Le Creuset is energy efficient because once the pan is heated, you only need a low setting to maintain the cooking temperature. The enamel surface is hygienic and is safe to use with acidic foods. Not only can you cook in them, they work very well for marinating or storing raw or cooked foods in the freezer or refrigerator.
Cast iron retains heat for a long time, and by making the bottom, sides and lids all the same thickness, there are no areas where heat loss is accelerated.

Le Creuset Company HistoryCast iron has been used for cooking since the Middle Ages. In 1925, the Le Creuset factory in Fresnoy-Le-Grand in France began producing hand-cast cookware using sand molds. Today, the process isn't much different. Each mold is destroyed after the cast iron is removed from it. Each piece is then sanded and polished by hand before being inspected for imperfections.
Once it has met their stringent standards, each piece is enameled in a process that requires two separate coats of enamel with a firing at 800 degrees Celsius between each coat. This makes the enamel very hard and durable so it holds up extremely well during normal use. As time has passed, Le Creuset has also added stoneware cookware, silicon utensils and a brand new stainless steel line of cookware.
Le Creuset has been a staple in French kitchens since 1926. For chefs who appreciate style and functionality, Le Creuset satisfies on both counts with their classic designs. From their well-known cast iron line to their new silicon accessories, this company has a lot to offer.
