Revered by both professional chefs and home cooks since its 1925 debut, Le Creuset's classic French cookware is prized for its utilitarian good looks and unsurpassed heat retention. Cast iron cookware is clad in smooth, vitrified porcelain (here in deep ink blue), rendering each piece impervious to acid, alkali, odors and stains. Non-reactive cooking surface does not require seasoning, resists chipping and cleans easily. Compatible with all types of heat sources, from gas and electric stoves, to ceramic and glass cooktops, to induction and halogen—even solid fuel and open fire. The lightest weight per volume of any premium cast cookware. Le Creuset cookware in spinach and cherry also available.
