Product Description

Product 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’.

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.

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.


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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to cook with 4 May 2011
By Steph H
This is my second Le Creuset, both a recent investment. I am utterly delighted with how they cook. You can cook slowly and gently without things sticking or burning. They work brilliantly in the oven or on the hob and a great for casseroles, paella etc where you need to start off on the hob and transfer to the oven. Even when you've cooked a casserole for three hours and there is baked on gravy on the dish, it washes off really easily. Le Creuset recommend you don't put the pans in the dishwasher so it's great that they clean so quickly and easily by hand. They really are an investment as they're obviously on the expensive side but I think they're worth it and they'll last a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a brand name 4 Feb 2012
By Jster
Yes you are paying extra for the brand name, but I'm pleased to say that the product is really fantastic too. The 28cm is huge, plenty of room for a big family meal, but also great for me and my girlfriend to cook up a big batch to have lots of left overs for work lunches! Awesome heat distribution and the color really brightens up the kitchen bench top. Thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for entertaining! 29 Sep 2007
Approximate capacity : 6.7 litres, so one of the heftiest ones, this versatile casserole dish/cocotte/French oven.

My overall favourite recipe in this size is:

'Greek Stifatho', pages 90/91, from Claudia Roden's Simple Mediterranean Cookery, serving 6-8 comfortably.

It is also ideal for Fergus Henderson's 'Lamb Shanks with Port', serving four and reproduced on pages 152/153 of Henrietta Green's Farmers' Market Cookbook.

Or....to show the true versatility of this brilliant 'casserole' dish, you could try what my best friend makes:bazaar-sized cakes to aid local charity funds.

Sturdily boxed, with full use and care instructions supplied.
Easy to use and clean by hand, although some soaking and a rub with a plastic brush inside and out, may be required for the more stubborn baked-on food remains.
Dishwasher safe, if it fits in, because this is BIG!

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell to ready meals 30 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
A friend of mine was given one of these casseroles as a gift last year and I've been jealous since. I finally treated myself to one recently, buying the same size as my friend had, and forgetting that her cooker is 55 or 60cm wide, while mine is a modest 50cm. Fortunately, the heat absorption of the cast iron means that the casserole's being slightly off centre on its ring means that size doesn't matter.

I live alone, but once a week cook for up to seven or eight people. I don't much like washing up, so have got pretty good at one-pot cookery, which is where this casserole excels. I only need to cook twice a week: anything more, besides bread, is for the fun of it. Once for the dinner party, and then once for the freezer.

Even washing up isn't as difficult as I feared: although the casserole is large and heavy, even dried on food wipes off easily with warm soapy water and a sponge (oh! To have room for a dishwasher!). There's a little voice in my ear that keeps whispering "go on... get the matching saucepans... you know you want to..."

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Very nice to cook with - retains heat really well and heats very quickly and evenly. Excellent for curries, stews, stir fries etc. It is quite big and consequently very heavy, so a little awkward to wash - don't put your fingers in the handles when you turn it upside down or they'll break! Washes clean very easily, nothing sticks and a quick rinse before you wash will get rid of all the surface food debris. I will be buying matching smaller casserole and frying pan.
