A spacious design with a curved base offers more than an invitation to dinner- it creates the perfect environment for making soups and stocks. With enamel-on-cast-iron construction, this pot's potential goes far beyond soups.
The Le Creuset Legend
Le Creuset is synonymous with its cast iron cookware, which had been made in Fresnoy-Le-Grand in Northern France since 1925. There, each piece begins by hand-casting molten iron in sand molds- still the most delicate stage of the production process. After casting, each mold is destroyed and the cookware is polished and sanded by hand, then scrutinized for imperfections. Once declared good for enameling, the items are sprayed with two separate coats of enamel and fired after each process at 800 degrees Celsius. The enamel then becomes extremely hard and durable, making it almost completely resistant to damage during normal use. Because much of the finishing is done by hand, each Le Creuset cast iron cookware piece is completely unique.
