Le Creuset Volcanic Cast Iron Cookware - Cast iron has been used as a material for cookware since Roman times. Even with today's wide choice of cooking materials, cast iron, still forged and crafted by hand, reigns supreme with its versatility, good looks and ability to retain and spread heat evenly. 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 in 1925.
Le Creuset's cast iron cookware is 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.
