Le Creuset 3.5 Qt. Black Round French Oven - L25012231S
For generations, families have come to cherish the classic cocotte. This everyday Round French Oven (or Dutch oven, referred by most people) 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 there are leftovers in the pot, save them for tomorrow. You can store it in the refrigerator or in the freezer and not worry about food reacting to the porcelain enamel surface.
- Highest Quality Vitreous Enamel
All Le Creuset products are coated with the highest quality vitreous enamel. This hygienic, impermeable enameled surface means Le Creuset can be used for marinating food prior to cooking or for food storage after cooking.
- Heat Sources
Le Creuset enameled cast iron cookware can be used on the stovetop, in the oven and under the grill. Le Creuset is suitable for use on all heat sources including electric, gas, ceramic, halogen top and induction.
- Heat Distribution and Retention
Cast Iron is a superior conductor of heat. The even thickness of the base, walls and lid mean that heat distribution is even and energy efficient. Furthermore, the heat retention properties of the pieces are second to none, ensuring that the pot stays hot for second helpings.
- Phenolic Knobs and Handles
Phenolic knobs are fitted to the lids of French ovens and saucepans. The handles on many of our saucepans and frypans are also phenolic. These knobs and handles are ovenproof to 400°, allowing for an easy transition from stovetop to oven to table.
- Innovative New Product
Le Creuset is constantly introducing new products to keep up with contemporary cooking trends. Examples of this are Le Creuset's Tagine and Wide French Oven.
- Fantastic Color
Le Creuset is synonymous with style. We are known for our bright colors and are often referred to as trendsetters. Our signature color, Flame, is a timeless classic.
- Energy Efficient
Le Creuset cast iron is an efficient material in absorbing and distributing heat, therefore, there is no need to use high heat. Best cooking results are obtained on low to medium settings; using Le Creuset on high settings may result in the enamel chipping.
- Table Use
Le Creuset is stylish enough to be taken straight from the kitchen to the table where its wide choice of colors coordinate with almost any home décor.
