Le Creuset 5.5 Qt. Round Dutch Oven - L25012617
About Le Creuset... Since 1925, artisans have been crafting Le Creuset cookware in the French village of Fresnoy Le Grand. Each piece of Le Creuset cast iron cookware is handcast, polished, double enamel-coated and then fired, resulting in some of the finest quality cookware available. Cast iron is one of the best materials for distributing heat gently and thoroughly and is ideal for induction ranges. The strong enamel coating will not absorb odors or flavors, and is easy to clean. Heavy lids securely seal in moisture and flavor. Le Creuset cookware comes in a variety of sizes, colors and styles to match any kitchen and cooking preference. So lasting, you'll pass it on to the next generation of promising cooks.
For generations, French cooks have relied on Dutch Ovens like this one to braise meats and slow-cook soups and stews. The enameled cast-iron pot holds in heat, and the heavy, tight-fitting lid helps retain moisture and intensify flavors.
This everyday pot never makes it to the cupboard: it goes from the stove or oven to the table to the dishwasher then back to the stove for tomorrow's dinner. If you want to keep leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer-you can store in Le Creuset and not worry about food reacting to the porcelain enamel surface. 5.5-qt. capacity. Made in France.
