Each piece from our extensive range of high-quality enameled cast iron cookware is designed for ease and versatility of use, fitting in with all styles of cooking, all types of cooking appliances and any style of kitchen or dining decor. Please read this section before using your cookware for the first time. The information it contains will help you achieve the best possible cooking results.
Enameled cast iron is a remarkable and robust material that performs well with modern requirements for food preparation and cooking. Whether you choose to stir-fry, slow-cook a casserole, sear a steak or bake a cake, there is a shape that is suitable. Cast iron performs well for either slow cooking or high-temperature searing.
Cast iron can be used reliably on any heat source, including induction, and with any oven or grill. It has the ability to retain heat efficiently, which allows for use of lower heat settings in stovetop and oven cooking. On the table, a hot covered dish will keep food hot for second servings.
Cast iron can also be used to keep foods cold. A chilled dish becomes an ideal cold food server on a hot summer day. It can also be placed in the freezer for food storage or advanced food preparation.
High heat temperatures should only be used for boiling water for vegetables or pasta, or for reducing the consistency of stocks or sauces. High heats should never be used to preheat a pan before lowering the heat for cooking. Cast iron retains heat so efficiently that overheating will cause food to burn or stick.
The vitreous enamel surface is impermeable and therefore ideal for raw or cooked food storage, and for marinating with acidic ingredients such as wine.
Cooking tips for shallow frying and sauteing:
For frying and sauteing, the fat should be hot before adding food. Bring the pan and fat or oil to the correct temperature together.
Oil is hot enough when there is a gentle ripple in its surface. For butter and other fats, bubbling or foaming indicates the correct temperature. If either begins smoking, or if butter begins browning, it is too hot and should be cooled slightly before proceeding. The quickest way to do this is to remove the pan from the heat source for a few moments. For longer shallow frying a mixture of oil and butter gives excellent results.

My biggest concern with buying the Le Creuset in the Fennel color was would it match the Emerald Color of the Lodge set I already own. Turns out the Fennel is just a little lighter than the Emerald in color but the two pieces of Le Creuset I own (2.25qt saucier pan and this 9 inch skillet) are light enough that if you examine them closely you can see the difference but from a distance hanging on my pot rack youd never know they were from a different manufacturer. For those who dont know already the Le Creuset products are made in France not America. (Lodge makes the cast iron in the US and has them enameled in China.) Le Creuset is a French company as well. I love both my Lodge and Le Creuset products but I will be honest if Lodge had the same selection as Le Creuset I would not have bought any from Le Creuset. I bought the entire Emerald Green collection from Lodge and the 2 pieces I felt i still needed that Lodge didnt offer I bought from Le Creuset.
And by the way the Lodge Silicone Handles fit on the Le Creuset products as well.
I also appreciate the unique size. At 9.5" it is ideal for most of my single person meals. And don't get me started on the lovely blue color. If I didn't already have a suitable cast iron 12" skillet, I'd spring for the bucks and get another Le Creuset. As it stands, both will be passed down to generations. Viva Le Creuset.
This skillet heats consistently and evenly, cleans easily, and looks stylish hanging on our kitchen wall. It is not teflon-lined, which we prefer, but does have an anti-stick coating (which my careless fiance has yet to manage to scratch; not sure he could even if he wanted to). A caution: it has to be re-seasoned pretty regularly to keep food from sticking. However, even if you don't season it very often, food doesn't stick nearly as badly as it would to a regular pan.
A warning to those who aren't very strong--because of the high-quality components, this skillet is HEAVY.
Overall, an absolutely excellent cooking tool!
