Use the Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Round Dutch Ovens in Meringue for making large batches of chilis, stews, casseroles and soups. You can also use this Le Creuset workhorse for roasting, as it's oven safe as well as compatible with all cook tops, including induction! Dutch ovens enhance slow cooking by locking in moisture, making foods more tender. The even heat of cast iron is ideal for this cooking method. Le Creuset's tight fitting lid and construction provide both superior heat distribution and moisture retention.
The brilliant color and elegant design make the Le Creuset Cast Iron Dutch Oven perfect for using directly at the table. Unlike other cast iron cookware, the Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Oval Cocotte does not require seasoning because of its interior enamel coating. The sand colored interior enamel also helps to prevent burning and sticking and makes it easy to monitor food during cooking. The gorgeous enamel exterior is long lasting and resists staining, dulling and chipping. The lid is designed with built-in stabilizers to provide a secure and no-slide fit. Made in France.
