The Benefits of Cooking with Cast Iron

Le Creuset’s Enamelled Cast Iron cookware has been the world’s colour and quality benchmark for almost a century. True to its inherent longevity, our most well-known range is still top of the pots – reigning supreme with its versatility, good looks and ability to retain and spread heat evenly.

If you have not yet discovered the benefits of cast iron cooking, it’s never too soon to start!

1. Durability

The expression “tough as nails” is certainly true of cast iron. Built to last, Le Creuset’s highly robust Enamelled Cast Iron is designed to produce a lifetime of delicious meals. In fact, it lasts for so long that many people still use Le Creuset heirlooms inherited from their parents or grandparents. Our colourful exterior enamel is vitrified to resist chipping and cracking, and the interior enamel is engineered to resist staining and dulling.


2. Versatility

Le Creuset’s Enamelled Cast Iron can be used on the hob, under the grill or in the oven. It is suitable for a variety of stovetops, including induction, with a flat base to ensure that pans sit flush on the hob. Our Signature Casseroles feature an ergonomic knob that is heat-resistant up to 260°C.


3. Heat retention

Cast iron both retains and spreads heat exceptionally well – keeping hot meals hot, and cold foods cold. So, if you decide to serve a dish in the pot itself, your food will likely remain warm for the entire meal. By requiring only a low heat to maintain its temperature, our Enamelled Cast Iron is also very energy efficient.

4. Easy clean

The vitreous enamel of Le Creuset’s Enamelled Cast Iron is an easy-to-clean surface that requires no seasoning or maintenance. All pieces can be easily hand-washed (a non-abrasive sponge and hot, soapy water is sufficient); and the range is perfectly dishwasher-safe too.


5. Beautiful presentation

Our beautifully designed Enamelled Cast Iron is available in a wide range of specialised shapes and iconic colours. Apart from adding a little artistic flair to your kitchen, Le Creuset will help you present your casseroles, bakes, and other dishes in a colourful and enticing way. Many cast iron enthusiasts enjoy choosing colours to match their decor.
