The Le Creuset Signature Shallow Casserole is an update on the kitchen classic and balances the best of the past with the latest performance and ergonomic enhancements. Updated features include: easy-grip, 45% larger handles; easy clean, toughened enamel interior; a stylish, heat resistant stainless steel knob; and an enhanced tight-fitting lid.
Available in a wide choice of Le Creuset colours from traditional volcanic to newer finishes such as delicate white Cotton or stunning Marseille blue, you'll easily find a style to suit your kitchen. Le Creuset Signature casseroles are suitable for use on all hob types, including induction, and in the oven - they can even go in the freezer too. Also, the casseroles make a wonderful serving dish as cast iron keeps food warmer for longer at the table.
Le Creuset Signature casseroles are cast in sand moulds and have been hand-crafted at the original French foundry since 1925. Each piece of enamelled cast iron cookware passes through the hands of 32 different highly skilled workers and emerges perfectly finished and unique. Built to be passed down from generation to generation, Le Creuset Signature casseroles come with a lifetime guarantee and fully deserve their reputation for being the very best cast iron cookware.
Wash the pan in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not fill a hot pan with cold water or plunge into cold water as thermal shock damage to the enamel may occur. Steamer Trading recommends refraining from using in the dishwasher and hand washing only to extend your Le Creuset cookwares life cycle.
Le Creuset cast iron cookware can be used on all heat sources. Gas, electric solid or radiant plates, vitroceramic glass, induction, and ranges fired by gas, oil, coal or wood. The enamel surface is not suitable for dry cooking. Your choice of liquid, oil, fat or butter should completely cover the base before heating begins.
Medium and low heats will provide the best results for the majority of cooking, including frying and searing. Allow the pan to heat gradually and thoroughly, as this will give the most even and efficient cooking results. Once the pan is hot almost all cooking can be continued on lower settings.
Le Creuset Signature cast iron cookware can be used at any oven temperature. These will become hot during stovetop as well as oven use. Use a dry, thick cloth, or oven mitts, for handling these at all times.
AT THE TABLE
Use heat resistant silicone utensils, heat resistant plastic or wooden tools. Occasional use of metal utensils may leave silver trail marks over the surface. Do not knock metal utensil on the rims of cookware, this will eventually damage the enamel. Place hot pans on silicone mats, wooden boards, or trivets. Never place a hot pan directly on an unprotected surface.
