Patterned after archived designs, Le Creuset's Heritage collection re-creates the enameled cast-iron cookware that Chuck Williams brought over from France over half a century ago. These traditional gratin pans are ideal for baking everything from egg dishes to roasting a chicken. Cast iron body distributes heat slowly and evenly for uniform cooking and optimal browning. Sand-colored enamel interior resists staining and chipping and makes it easy to monitor cooking process for less sticking and burning. Oven-to-table piece helps keep foods warm for serving. Dishwasher safe for fast, convenient cleanup. Made in France.
