About Le Creuset
A lifetime spent crafting the finest cookware. Le Creuset has been making superb, award winning cookware since 1925 and the secret recipe of ingredients remains the same today. Each piece is made from a unique mould into which molten iron is poured from a large cauldron (called a creuset). This creates a unique piece, each with its own identity and style. The piece is then hand finished and subjected to strict quality checks. Finally the cast iron is enamelled at extremely high temperatures to create the vibrant lustre and hard finish which looks great in the home.
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. Its excellent heat retention qualities mean that only low to medium heat is needed to ensure even heat distribution.
The enamel cooking surface is completely hygienic and impervious to flavours, odours and acid attack. It is perfect to hold foods that are marinating or for storing foods (raw or cooked) in the refrigerator or freezer.
Ceramic, halogen or induction hobs, gas, electric, solid fuel or Aga/Rayburn Le Creuset cast iron will work excellently on all. Whether you are sautéing, grilling, baking, roasting or stewing there is a pot, pan or dish to suit your needs. Le Creuset cookware is available in a wide range of colours that will suit both your kitchen and dining table.
Once hot you will require only a low to medium heat setting to maintain a good cooking performance. You can even remove it from the heat, leaving the food to cook in its own heat. This excellent heat retention means 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. For detailed information on heat sources, how to cook with and get the best from your Le Creuset Cast Iron and how to care for your chosen product, please consult our comprehensive Care and Use Guide located inside the box.

Thanks to Amazon I found this one for a snip at some £40 odd and snapped their hands off.
I dont care what people say, the Mocha colour is lovely. It goes lovely on my table with my chocolate brown tablewear and cooks beautifully.
I keep it pride of place on the hob and nearly everyone who walks in my kitchen comments on it and how they would love one.
I love it and would recomend this 24cm size for a family. Not too big and not too small. I can cook a large caserole for 6 people no problem.
They're much heavier that they look. I should know, I carried round Manchester from the cookshop to the car!
Since then it's been used for all kind of different things, stews, chilli, even Mulled Wine.
It cleans up really easily, hand washed or through the dishwasher, and still looks brand new.
Yes, it is quite expensive, but you really do get what you pay for - decent quality & hard wearing.
I expect this will still look just as new in several years time.
Tip: if the enamel surface gets burned on stains - particularly likely when frying things like onions - rather than using a scourer to remove - takes ages and lot of elbow grease - use neat bleach - yes - bleach and leave to soak over night. Stains - even blackened charring is removed without the need to scour. As the surface is enamel, bleach won't damage or the surface or leave any taste taint.
I got my Le Crueset Cast Iron Casserole pots some 3 years ago. I started off with 1 and quickly became 8 in different sizes and colours. I ordered them online, but not through Amazon, and all of them arrived in the best of condition and quality.
The 24 cm pot is a good size casserole pot for a family of 4, it would probably fit a small chicken in.
As with other Cast Iron products this pot is heavy, so if you have weak muscles or back like I do, you will need someone to help you out with this pot in the kitchen.
To give you some idea, below are my Red 24cm Pot's specifications (approx.):
Portion : 4-5
Volume : 4.2L
Lid weight : 1.55 kg
Pot weight : 2.45kg
Total weight : 4 kg
Height : 10.5 cm
Max oven temperature : the black phenolic lid knob up to 190C/375F, but Integral cast iron handles or stainless steel knobs can be used at 230C/446F or higher.
As usual good price from Amazon, far cheaper than anywhere else. I got a warehouse deal on this and only paid £74.00.
The colour is lovely. I have gone for a blended Le Creuset collection and have got my items in this the Cassis, Cobalt Blue (which they don't make anymore, but the current Graded Blue is almost exactly the same,) and teal.
This one, despite the picture, actually has the stainless steel knob, which is different from everything else I have. But, it makes it look really modern and if I decide I want the black one, I know Le Creuset sell them separately.
This holds just enough and is another great item for your one pot cooking, it really is from hob to oven. I admire the fact that Le Creuset offer a lifetime warranty on their cast iron/enamel products.
As always, this washes up really well, and they are dishwasher safe. However, I have yet to put any of mine in the dishwasher as I like to wash and dry them and put away.
Like all Le Creuset don't use metal utensils with this. I use sillicone (in fact I recently bought some Le Creuset silicone spatulas, they look lovely and work really well, except are wooden handled so can't go in dishwasher.)
The one thing I have learnt is that despite checking it out on the web, and it seeming that you can, don't use a bamix with these dishes. I did, and now have a small amount of damage to the bottom of one of my dishes. I think where the metal must have knocked the bottom. It's a shame, as I now have all these expensive casserole dishes and an expensive bamix, but have to keep my old M&S casserole dish to make homemade soup for fear of damaging these.
Ideal for casseroles, bolognese, chilli's etc.
Used nearly everyday since arrived and can't imagine cooking without it.
Excellant buy and fantastic price and delivery quick.
