Cast Iron & Stoneware
The Le Creuset cast iron range is what the brand is known for, available in a range of bright colours including the iconic ‘Volcanic orange’. Named after the technique used to create the cast iron cookware, ‘creuset’ translated from French means cauldron. Each piece of Le Creuset cast iron cookware is unique, each piece is made from a sand mould (that can only be used once) in which molten iron is poured. The iron cast is removed and the mould is recycled, ensuring that no two pieces are exactly the same. Once the piece has cooled, it then is taken through the finishing process, ultimately ended in two coats of enamel, one ground coat and one colour coat. The whole piece is air dried and it’s ready to cook with!
The benefits of investing in Le Creuset cast iron cookware is that it will last a lifetime, it is durable, tough and can withstand incredibly high temperatures. How you use your Le Creuset cookware is up to you, use it to cook with on the hob, in the oven, on the barbecue, on an open fire… The list is endless!
