For over 80 years, enameled cast iron has been the foundation of Le Creuset's product line. Each piece is formed in two sand molds which are used only once and then the sand is recycled. Once removed from the mold the piece is polished and finished by hand, and then enameled and fired twice. The unique production process yields a nonreactive cooking surface that can be used on any type of heat source, including induction and glass top, and can be used in the oven up to 375Â°F. Heat spreads throughout more evenly and is retained for longer, and the enameled surface requires no seasoning. Whether on the stove, in the oven or on the table, this unmistakable style, quality and durability is sure to be appreciated. Le Cruset enameled cast iron is superior quality cookware that is ready for a lifetime of everyday use and to be passed down by generations of food lovers.
