The Le Creuset Range
In addition to the well known Le Creuset casserole dish, the company now manufacture a diverse quantity of products to discover which includes;
Le Creuset Cast Iron Cookware
The Le Creuset casserole is the most iconic product in the company's cast iron collection. First launched in 1925, the Cocotte, otherwise known as a Dutch Oven, or casserole, is still hand crafted today. During the manufacturing processes, liquid molten iron is poured into sand moulds to create these pans. The moulds are broken after each casting and the sand recycled. This means that no two pans are exactly the same. Further finishing processes are then carried out by skilled craftsmen before finally, two layers of enamel are applied. The enamelling process gives Le Creuset cast iron its characteristic beauty. It also creates a tough, non-reactive surface. A Le Creuset casserole dish is incredibly durable and versatile, perfect for use both on the hob and in the oven. With a wide choice of colour options, there will be something suitable for every customer.
Le Creuset Stoneware
Many Le Creuset stoneware products are available so you can start your day with the perfect cup of tea in a Le Creuset mug. This shares the same great colours as the cast iron range. Stoneware items are made from specialist clays and fired at high temperatures which makes them strong and durable. So much so that the company offers a 5 year guarantee on stoneware items. They have been designed to provide excellent thermal resistance and maintain an even temperature. The range includes Le Creuset mugs, casseroles, roasters and many items which form the ‘Breakfast Collection’ and are available in the stunning rainbow of colours. This collection features items that are perfect for the most important meal of the day, including Le Creuset butter dishes, cups, mugs and teapots.
Toughened Non-Stick Pans
Le Creuset cast iron is not the only cookware available. Toughened Non Stick is a sleek range of versatile pans. The stylish design is coupled with super cooking results. Six layers create a tough, effective non-stick surface. The special hard-anodised body is long lasting and ideal for everyday use on any hob. The magnetic, stainless steel base ensures that this pan is ideal for use on induction hobs. The forged aluminium body is a perfect conductor, creating an even distribution of heat. The Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick range has been created to help you make quick, tasty meals with no fuss. Cooking can be fast and fun with the toughened non-stick Le Creuset pans.
3-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware
Le Creuset 3-Ply Cookware uses a combination of high grade 18/10 stainless steel and aluminium for a multi ply stainless steel finish. This creates a metal layer which uses an aluminium core to spread heat evenly. This means that there are no hotspots and ensures food is cooked evenly throughout. 3-ply cookware is suitable for use on all hobs, including induction. To make life easier, the pans have a lip which enables you to pour from any angle. The range is covered by a lifetime guarantee and is dishwasher safe. 3-ply cookware is available as either standard or signature ranges and you can get everything from a 3 Ply Stainless Steel Le Creuset frying pan, to a rectangular roaster. Signature ranges feature a lid and handle modelled on the classic cast iron casserole lids.
