Product Description

Colour:Volcanic

Manufacturer's Description

A traditional tatin recipe uses the tatin dish first on the hob to tenderise and caramelise ingredients, then you press a pastry over the ingredients and transfer the dish in the oven for baking. Turn the tart upside down before serving.

A unique shape for today's modern cooking. The original Tarte Tatin recipe was the result of a mistake by the daughter of Jean Tatin, owner of L'Hotel Tatin in the Loire Valley. Instead of placing the apples inside a pastry shell, they were put in the dish first with the pastry on top. The tart had to be turned upside down before serving and the diners loved it!!! Now a modern classic!

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 use 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). Note: Wooden handles must not be placed in the oven.

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 or non-stick 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.

Note: Wooden handle pans are not dishwasher safe.

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.

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 it’s 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.

Colour Name: Volcanic
This is a great dish which is not only perfectly designed for tarte tatin but also works very well for making tortilla (spanish omelette).

use on the hob to caramelise your fruit for the tatin or cook your tortilla, then pop it in the oven/under the grill to finish off each dish. The two hanldes make turning out your finished dish easy as pie and fit in the oven much easier than if it had one long handle.

thoroughly recommended as an investment for the kitchen that will last a lifetime.

...and not just for the old favourite apple version!

MATERIAL : CAST IRON
COLOUR : VOLCANIC

This Tarte Tatin Dish is certainly excellent at its 'traditional' job, but it is also equally successful as a base for cooking a whole range of tempting sweets, puddings and savoury dishes in.

I have just successfully tried out a super new recipe for:

'Chocolate and Raspberry Cake'

a seriously rich cake with a hidden tang, which can be served warm as a dessert with hot raspberry sauce or cold as a cake.

However, this dish is also ideal for
.....quiche
....a tart
......a chunky Spanish tortilla/omelette
.....roasted vegetables.....the list is endless!

Approximate size, based on my own dishes:

* External base diameter : 20 cm, gently tapering out to 24.5 cm at the top
* Overall width including the low-set handles : 30 cm
* Depth : 4.5 cm

And because the handles are set lower than the dish, it is easy to place the serving plate on top and flip the contents over, without loss, when required!

Suitable for all heat sources.
Easy to clean/dishwasher safe.
Sturdily boxed.
Le Creuset embossed on one handle.

The accompanying booklet also contains some interesting history about the alleged origins of the 'Tarte Tatin' recipe:

...'Dating back to the late 19th Century, this recipe was allegedly invented as the result of a 'mistake' by Ms Stephanie Tatin - a mistake which was to become a piece of culinary history and has continued to enjoy growing popularity ever since......

* External base diameter : 20 cm, gently tapering out to 24.5 cm at the top
* Overall width including the low-set handles : 30 cm

The whole story appears in this chunky booklet, in 6 languages (Svenska, Espanol, Nederlands, Deutsch, English and Français), which also includes use/care instructions, along with recipes for:

* Apple Tarte Tatin
* Banana Butterscotch Tatin
* Chocolate Pear Dessert with Chocolate Ganache Sauce

* Salmon and Leek Quiche

to get you started.

Doubles up as a stunning fruit bowl, when not in use for cooking on or off the cooker!

I have used this tatin dish a few times now to make Gluten Free Apple Tarte Tatin.

This is using the recipe from Grace Cheetam's book also purchased on Amazon The Best Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free & Dairy-Free Recipes: More Than 100 Mouth-watering Recipes for All the Family.

The dish sits perfectly flat on our ceramic stove and is easy to manouvre and flip when the time comes.

I thank previous reviewers for their comments & photos, and will attach a couple of mine also.

By Bluebell TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Nov. 2008
Colour Name: Volcanic
Although sold as a dish particularly for tart tatin I find it particularly good for roast potatoes. The good heat distribution and thick base means that the potatoes brown evenly and don't scorch as they tend to in thinner metal roasting tins. The handles make taking in and out of the oven much easier and safer.

Gorgeous piece of kitchen equipment - but not for the weak armed! When I lose my strength I will pass it to my daughter!
I've 'turned out' some delicious upside down cakes and tarts with this wonderful le Creuset tart tatin dish and couldn't be more pleased with it. If only there was something half so good with half the weight - it would be perfect but then I am an 'old girl'!
