Le Creuset began producing its first porcelain enamelled cast iron pots in 1925 from its foundry in Fresnoy le Grand, France. It is from this base that Le Creuset continues to produce its world famous cast iron cookware. While Le Creuset has expanded its portfolio of products and has taken advantage of many technological advances to create new and exciting ranges of cookware and accessories, some things have not changed in the manufacture of Le Creuset's cast iron range of products since its start in1925.
Le Creuset`s diverse portfolio of products include:
Le Creuset Cast Iron Cookware - Le Creuset's original and most well known range of products is its cast iron range. They are by way of their design, production methodology and functionality, literally unique. Each product is cast in its own sand mould, which is broken after casting. This creates an uniqueness for each item. After the casting, the production is hand finished by skilled French artisans, many of whom come from families that have been with the company for decades.
Multiple layers of incredibly strong, chip-resistant enamel are carefully applied to each piece. The enamelling process gives Le Creuset cast iron its characteristic beauty and creates a tough, non-reactive surface. Please click here to see how Le Creuset cast iron products are manufactured.
Le Creuset cast iron products are available in a wide variety of colours including: Volcanic (orange), Cerise (Red), Almond (Cream), Satin Black and Teal , Marseille Blue , Nutmeg , Slate , Coastal Blue and Cassis.
Le Creuset Satin Black Cast Iron Cookware - Le Creuset Satin Black enamel has a smooth satiny feel to it, but it is not as glossy or smooth as other lighter enamel finishes. It has been especially designed for high "surface" temperature cooking for example searing and grilling. It has excellent, easy food release properties, which are enhanced once a natural surface PATINA develops. It is not a non-stick surface and Le Creuset makes no claims otherwise, but, once the patina covers the cooking surface the release of foods improves such that little, or no, fats or oils are required.
