Patterned after designs in Le Creuset's archives, the Heritage collection re-creates its vintage enameled cast-iron cookware from half a century ago. These cocottes are optimized to provide steady, even heat for everything from slow-cooked pot au feu to hearty casseroles. Heavyweight cast-iron construction distributes heat slowly and evenly for uniform cooking. Sand-colored enamel interior resists staining and chipping and makes it easy to monitor food while cooking for less sticking and burning. Heavy, tight-fitting lid seals in moisture so foods emerge tender and juicy. Oven-to-table cocotte help keep foods warm for serving. Dishwasher safe for fast, convenient cleanup. Made in France.
