Product Description

Colour: Kiwi

Manufacturer's Description

This round dish is ideal for casseroles, stews, roasting and perfect for preparing soups and rice dishes, even for baking cakes. The cast iron casserole is the essential kitchen classic from Le Creuset, suitable for all heat sources.

Fired at temperatures of 840 degrees Celsius, the smooth enamel finish of Le Creuset cast iron is durable and hygienic. This means that everything you stew, braise or simmer in a Le Creuset piece will taste just as good as you intended. It also means your dishes will keep looking good from the hob to the oven, from the oven to the table (and from the table to the dishwasher).

Cast Iron Facts

Suitable for use in the oven, on the hob and under the grill. Cast iron can also be used on all heat sources, including Aga’s and induction hobs. It can withstand temperatures up to 190 degrees Celsius. It’s excellent heat retention qualities mean that only low to medium heats are needed to ensure even heat distribution.

Le Creuset Cast Iron

Hand made in France since 1925, each piece is made from a unique mould into which molten iron is poured, this creates a unique piece, which is, then hand finished and subjected to strict quality checks. Le Creuset offers a lifetime guarantee on all cast iron (except non-stick items which carry a 10-year guarantee). You will feel the difference as our cast iron is 9 percent lighter than the leading competitor and with a perfectly flat base it is great for all hobs including glass and ceramic. It also distributes heat more evenly ensuring there are no ‘hot spots’.

Hygienic
The enamel cooking surface is completely hygienic and impervious to flavours and odours. It is perfect to hold foods that are marinating or for storing foods (raw or cooked) in the refrigerator or freezer. The interior is a smooth gloss finish in a sand colour. The interior will clean easily by hand or by dishwasher.

Adaptability
Ceramic, halogen or induction hobs, gas, electric, solid fuel or Aga/Rayburn Le Creuset cast iron will work excellently on all. Whether you are sauteing, grilling, baking, roasting or stewing there is a pot, pan or dish to suit your needs. Most pieces can go on the oven, in the oven or under the grill and importantly if you change your cooking hob you do not need to change your pans. Le Creuset cookware is available in a wide range of colours that will suit both your kitchen and dining table.

Energy Efficient
Once hot you will require only a low to medium heat setting to maintain a good cooking performance, they can even be removed from the heat leaving the food to cook in it’s own heat. These heat retention properties mean that a Le Creuset dish will keep warm for longer at the table.

Care and Use:

Before first use: remove all labels. Wash the pan in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Pans with enamelled cooking surfaces are now ready for use and require no further preparation.

Heat Sources: Le Creuset cast iron cookware can be used on all heat sources. Gas, electric solid or radiant plates, vitroceramic glass, induction, and ranges fired by gas, oil, coal or wood. When using on any glass stovetops always follow the manufacturer’s guidance for use of your cookware. Never drag pans across the glass, but lift on and off,or from one heat zone to another. The enamel surfaces are not suitable for dry cooking. Your choice of liquid, oil, fat or butter should completely cover the base before heating begins.

Oven Temperatures: For black phenolic lid knobs and handles a maximum temperature of 190 degrees Celsius, 375 degrees Fahrenheit or Gas 5 (Europe gas setting 6). For products with integral cast iron handles or stainless steel knobs the maximum oven use temperature is 230 degrees Celsius / 450 degrees Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 8 (Europe gas setting 9).

Range Stoves with Cast Iron Oven Linings: Do not place any cookware on the floor of these ovens. Cook only on the racks provided. Integral cast iron handles or stainless steel knobs will become hot during stovetop as well as oven use. Use a dry, thick cloth, or Le Creuset oven mitts, for handling these at all times.

How to use:

Medium and low heats will provide the best results for the majority of cooking, including frying and searing. Allow the pan to heat gradually and thoroughly, as this will give the most even and efficient cooking results. Once the pan is hot almost all cooking can be continued on lower settings.

High heats should only be used for boiling water for vegetables or pasta, or for reducing the consistency of stocks and sauces. High heats should never be used to pre-heat a pan before lowering the heat for cooking. Cast iron retains heat so well that if a pan is overheated in this way it will contribute to poor cooking results, sticking and discolouration of cooking surfaces.

Match the pan base to the heat zone to maximize efficiency and prevent overheating of pan sides or damage to handles. Long handles should be positioned safely so that they do not overhang the front of your stovetop, or over other heat zones. Do not heat an empty pan or allow a pan to boil dry. Either may cause permanent damage to the enamel and pan.

For stirring comfort and surface protection use Le Creuset heat resistant silicone utensils, heat resistant plastic or wooden tools. Occasional use of metal utensils may leave silver trail marks over the surface. Do not knock metal utensil on the rims of cookware, this will eventually damage the enamel.

Note: Do not cut foods directly on any enamel surface.

Place hot pans on Le Creuset silicone mats, wooden boards, or trivets. Never place a hot pan directly on an unprotected surface. We recommend using Le Creuset oven mitts for lifting hot pans at all times.

Electric hand held beaters or mixers should not be used in any cookware. Permanent damage to all surfaces will be caused.

After use always cool a pan for a few minutes before washing in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not fill a hot pan with cold water or plunge into cold water as thermal shock damage to the enamel may occur.

If there are food residues fill the pan with warm water and leave to soak for 15 – 20 minutes, then wash in the usual way. Nylon or soft abrasive pads or brushes can be used to remove stubborn residues. Do not use metallic pads, or harsh abrasive cleaning agents, as these will damage the enamel and polished trims.

Light stains or metal trail marks (caused by metal tools) can be removed with Le Creuset Cookware cleaner. An occasional conditioning clean with this product will also retain the new appearance and polish of your pans.

Cleaning

All pans with integral cast iron, phenolic handles, or stainless steel lid knobs, can be washed in the dishwasher. When using the dishwasher always allow the cycle to complete before opening the door. This will ensure the pans are dried thoroughly.

Maintain the tightness of all handles and knobs by checking and re-tightening them regularly. Le Creuset enamelled cast iron is extremely durable, but it may be damaged if accidentally dropped or knocked against a hard surface.

    Colour Name: Volcanic
    If I was only left with one pan, I would want it to be this one. I got one of these earlier this year and it is just amazing!
    Its great for doing risotto's in, they come out creamy and smooth. You can make pasta sauce in it or you can do what I did tonight, which was to prepare the base of a shepherd's pie in it and then cover the mix in spuds and stick it straight in the oven.
    Oh and forget all that fancy non-stick stuff. Bake this thing as hard as you like and all you need to do is soak it in warm soapy water for an hour or two and off it all comes.
    I currently live in lodgings and had to put most of my cooking kit into storage. This was my first choice of the things I could take because I knew how versatile it would be . I would give this to any child of mine living in digs at uni because there is so much you can do with it. Its simply the best, better than all the rest.

    Colour Name: Satin Black
    ...with the NEW STAINLESS STEEL KNOB.

    SHAPE : ROUND
    SIZE: 22 cm
    Approximate maximum capacity : 3.3L

    Sturdily boxed, complete with full 'SATIN BLACK' care & use instructions.

    ooOoo

    Manufacturer Details:

    'Cleaning SATIN BLACK Enamel:

    ~ Do not attempt to remove the patina (the brownish black film) which is produced on a satin black surface. This enhances the cooking performance and food release from the surface.

    ~ Always cool the hot pan for a few minutes before washing.

    ~ When possible rinse the pan in hot water and wipe over the surface with a damp cloth. This may be possible if the pan is used for regular cooking of foods where the food residues are minimal. For more thorough washing use hot soapy water, then rinse and dry thoroughly, this will not affect the patina.

    ~ To remove stubborn or sticky residues fill the warm pan with warm water and leave to soak for 10-15 minutes. Wash, rinse and dry in the usual way.

    ~ A washing up brush can be useful to remove small food deposits, or for cleaning between the ribs on grills. Do not use any scourers or abrasive cleaners on the cooking surface.

    * Exterior marks, such as burnt on fat deposits, can be lightly scoured using a nylon pad, or can be cleaned off with regular use of the Le Creuset Pots and Pans cleaner, do not use on matt black exteriors.

    ~ All metal handled pans can be washed in the dishwasher but this greatly reduces the build up of the patina.....'

    ◄ Apologies. Amazon has amalgamated products and this review now appears as a duplicate. ►

    CAST IRON CASSEROLE
    Round-shaped
    Size : 22 cm
    Approximate maximum capacity: 3.3L

    COLOUR : CASSIS

    Comes sturdily boxed, complete with CAST IRON use/care instruction booklet.

    Cast iron ensures an even heat distribution on all heat sources, and my favourite recipe in this sized casserole is 'Hot Chilli Surprise' - using just this one pot for the lot......on the hob.
    Also, GREAT for making a curry......or even.......'baking a cake'.
    This dish is also the perfect size for 4 loin steaks in an oven-baked 'Scrumpy and Pork Casserole'!

    Or...if looking for further inspiration and for advice regarding cast iron cooking in general, there are some delicious recipes including one for this particular sized dish: 'Simple Vegetable and Saffron Rice', serving 6-8, on page 20, of the excellent book, entitled, The Cast Iron Way to Cook, by Sue Cutts, who writes:

    'As the title suggests, this is the simplest way to cook a vegetable rice dish. The heat-retaining qualities of cast iron are so good that once the casserole is hot it can be removed from the hob and left for the rice to continue cooking with no additional bottom heat. Just a stir at the end of the 20-minute cooking period and the rice will be ready to serve......'

    Anyway, getting back to this super 'pot' - it is relatively easy to wash up by hand, although a bit of soaking and a rub with a plastic brush may be required for those more stubborn baked-on food remains.
    It is also dishwasher safe and is of a size that fits most, comfortably.

    Difficult to get excited about a casserole dish but this is excellent.

    Cook on the stove top...then transfer in the oven....then pop in the dishwasher when you're done.

    Perhaps the black one is more cauldron than classy - maybe one of the coloured ones would have been better for the table....
