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, unsurpassed heat retention, and lids that create an even "blanket" of heat. Cast iron is clad in smooth, vitrified porcelain (here in our very own deep ink blue), rendering each piece impervious to acid, alkali, odors and stains. Non-reactive cooking surface does not require seasoning. 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. Le Creuset cookware in spinach and cherry also available. More Le Creuset colors and items available via special order. Le Creuset® and other Wedding Registry offers Cast iron. Vitreous porcelain finish. For use with traditional gas and electric, induction and ceramic cooktops. Dishwasher- and oven-safe to 500 degrees. Made in France.
