Product Description

This shallow dish is ideal for casseroles, stews, roasting and perfect for preparing rice dishes, sauteing or even for baking bread. 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 and from the oven to the table.
Marseille Blue CollectionBring the alluring flavours and style of the Mediterranean into your home and brighten your kitchen and dining room with the brand new colour from Le Creuset - Marseille. Renowned for its premium design and use of vibrant colour for over 85 years, Le Creuset has introduced a stunning new blue to its cookware, oven-to-table stoneware and stovetop kettles.
About Le CreusetA 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 FactsSuitable 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. Hygienic: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.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. 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. 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.

Colour Name: Volcanic
First things first, this thing is BIG. That's why I wanted it, but you have to be sure you have space to keep it as its presence is hard to ignore - especially in orange. Assuming you can accommodate it, everything else you know about enamelled cast iron applies to this too - it's wonderfully effective at retaining and distributing heat when you want to cook gently, less so when you want to up the temperature to sear a steak or a slab of tuna.
The shape deserves some comment too. The short handles get hot and make the pan hard to manipulate on the hob, but conversely help it to work well in the oven, where the cast iron effect really comes into its own. Meanwhile, the gently sloping sides make it very attractive but they rather reduce the flat cooking area at the bottom, making the pan less commodious than it might be. They also make stirring a risotto or a paella a little fiddly as it's too easy to help the rice over the edge of the pan. I use this pan as a complement to a deeper, steep-sided, cast-aluminium sauté pan, which also has the advantage of a long handle. Risotti and stir-fries go in the sauté pan, slow-braised pork chops, boeuf en daube and sausage casserole in the Le Creuset.
In conclusion, this is a specialist piece, not an all-rounder, but it's none the worse for that. If you can justify the space and cost, you'll enjoy using it and be pleased with the results.

Colour Name: Volcanic
Also known as the 'Buffet Casserole', this dish is an old favourite of mine.
The shallow but wide base allows even heat distribution/retention, enabling better cooking efficiency at low or medium temperatures and aiding the conservation of energy and lower fuel bills.

Sue Cutts has a chapter dedicated to the use of the SHALLOW CASSEROLES in her book, entitled:-

The Cast Iron Way to Cook

and my current favourite is:-

'Vegetable Casserole with Crispy Topping'

from page 29 - which serves 4-6 as a main course or 6-8 as a starter/side dish.
Simply the perfect dish to brown off under a hot grill.

Suitable for any hob-top or pop it in the oven.
Elegant enough to take directly to the dinner table, especially with the well-designed low lifting handles.

Easy to use and clean by hand, although some soaking and a rub with a plastic brush may be required to remove the more stubborn baked-on food remains.
Dishwasher safe.

Sturdily boxed, complete with CAST IRON use & care leaflet.

Currently available in a rainbow of colours:-

CERISE RED
GRANITE GREY
VOLCANIC ORANGE

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 Dec. 2010
Colour Name: Teal
I have both the 26cm and 30 cm shallow casserole dishes. As you would expect from Le Creuset, they are easy to use on both the hob and in the oven (or both, depending on the recipe you use them for). As you would also expect of cast iron (enamelled interior), they are also fairly weighty when full.

The 26cm casserole is just about the right size to comfortably prepare a meal for two without the contents being in danger of spilling out if stirred on the hob. The 30cm is large enough to comfortably hold a meal for four. The 26cm fits nicely inside the 30cm, sitting on the lid of the former and thus the pair do not use up an awful lot of cupboard space, which is always a boon.

Cleaning is a breeze, they come up like new in the dishwasher or when washed by hand.

Mine both had sticky labels on the base; I mention this only because I remembered to remove one but not the second - the smoke alarm and a smell of chemical burning alerted me to my omission when the dish in question was otherwise happily cooking on the hob. Oops! Anyway, even the burnt label came off cleanly, so no harm done.

Colour Name: Cassis
I bought this casserole as a present for my wife, who has wanted one since first seeing it in this colour some time ago.
What is there to say about Le Creuset cookware that hasn't been said before?
It is superb, albeit quite heavy, but you can't seriously expect cast iron to be light.
Since getting it my wife has used it frequently, and because it looks so good she takes it straight from the oven to the table, drawing a few admiring comments from our friends and relatives.
If you like it and don't mind paying a premium for top quality cookware, treat yourself and buy one. You won't be disappointed.

The 30 cm 'SHALLOW CASSEROLE' (aka The 'BUFFET CASSEROLE'), from Le Creuset.

MATERIAL : CAST IRON
COLOUR : CERISE (CREAM interior)
Approximate capacity: 3.2L

An old favourite of mine the shallow wide base allows maximum contact between food and heat and the even heat retention enables cooking efficiency at low or medium temperatures, helping to conserve energy and keep fuel bills lower....particularly important in the current climate!

If you are looking for inspiration, Sue Cutts has a chapter dedicated to the use of the 'SHALLOW CASSEROLES' in her book, entitled: The Cast Iron Way to Cook, and my current favourite is her 'Vegetable Casserole with Crispy Topping', from page 29 - which serves 4-6 as a main course or 6-8 as a starter/side dish.

Elegant enough to take directly to the dinner table, especially with the well-designed low lifting handles.

Easy to use and clean by hand, although some soaking and a rub with a plastic brush may be required to remove the more stubborn baked-on remains.
Dishwasher safe, space permitting!

Sturdily boxed, complete with use and care leaflet.

Currently also available in two smaller sizes:

26 cm/2L & 22 cm/1.4L
