Le Creuset cast iron range
Le Creuset are best known for their range in enamel coated cast iron which lasts for many years without rusting, scratches, discoloration, dents or other damage. Cast iron is also a highly efficient material for cooking as it distributes the heat evenly and acts as an excellent insulator. Cast iron pots can be used directly on an open flame on a stove top, or inside an oven for baking. Unlike uncoated cast iron, enamel coated cast iron will never rust and does not need to be seasoned prior to cooking.
Le Creuset are probably most famous for their casserole dishes which come in a range of shapes and sizes such as the Le Creuset cast iron round casserole Volcanic 22 cm. The casseroles all come with lids and can be bought as a circular, oval or even heart shape. There are also shallow or deep casserole dishes to choose from to suit the cooking of different dishes.

It is certainly true that you will not have to buy another pan for many years after investing in a set from Le Creuset. The range includes saucepans and frying pans in a range of sizes.
As well as the popular Le Creuset cast iron Volcanic kitchen items, the range also includes several stoneware items including serving dishes, storage jars, mugs, tea pots, jugs and other items so it is possible to fully kit out your kitchen in coordinating items.
One of the most popular items in the Volcanic range is the Le Creuset traditional kettle volcanic. This kettle comes in two different sizes, can be used on the stove top and is complete with a whistle to let you know when the water is boiling. Made from enameled steel, the kettle conducts heat evenly, resulting in a reduced boiling time. The handle is made from a highly heat resistant plastic for easy handling when taking it off the stove. As well as being highly practical, this kettle looks great and adds warmth and charm to any kitchen.
Le Creuset is a traditional company that is not afraid of using new technologies and materials if they help to make our lives easier and this is illustrated in their silicone range including “multimats” which can be used as a potholder, trivet or tool for opening jars and bottles; and spatulas in a bright orange color to coordinate with the rest of the Le Creuset Volcanic range.
