Le Creuset Heritage Stoneware Bean Pot
A classic from the Le Creuset archives, this handsome stoneware bean pot efficiently simmers beans and grains to perfection the old-fashioned way: in the oven. It is ideally proportioned to produce tender legumes with a creamy, satisfying texture as well as fluffy rice pilafs and couscous. High-fired stoneware is exceptionally strong and ensures slow, even heating perfect for long, slow cooking. Tight-fitting lid seals in moisture so foods emerge tender and juicy. Durable porcelain enamel-glaze finish is easy to clean and resists chips, scratches and stains. Vibrant, colorful exterior for oven-to-table presentation. With a striking silhouette and rich, colorful glazes the pot can easily double as a cookie jar or utensil holder. Nonporous stoneware will not react with foods or absorb odors. Safe for oven, broiler, freezer and microwave; not for stovetop use. Dishwasher safe. The Heritage collection brings back vintage designs from Le Creuset's archives. Colors coordinate with Le Creuset enameled cast-iron cookware. 8" diam., 7" high; 4 lb. 13 oz. 4 1/2-qt. cap. Red, Ocean, Flame: Made in Thailand. Fennel, Cassis: Made in China.
