This oval Dutch oven with reversible grill pan lid does double-duty in the kitchen. Long recognized for its strength and durability, cast iron is the prime material for slow-cooking, braising and roasting, thanks to its ability to maintain even and consistent heat. Over time, the grill pan's slightly abrasive enamel will develop a natural patina that is ideal for searing and frying. Neither the base nor the lid need seasoning, and they are both suitable for stovetop and oven use.
Features Colorful exterior enamel is shock-resistant to prevent chipping and cracking. Sand-colored interior enamel has a smooth finish that promotes caramelization, prevents sticking and resists stains.Matte black interior enamel is specially formulated for higher temperatures, and promotes the development of a patina to enhance cooking performance. Enameled cast iron is a remarkable and robust material that performs well with modern requirements for food preparation and cooking.
Whether you choose to stir-fry, slow-cook a casserole, sear a steak or bake a cake, there is a shape that is suitable. Cast iron performs well for either slow cooking or high-temperature searing. Cast iron can be used reliably on any heat source, including induction, and with any oven or grill.
It has the ability to retain heat efficiently, which allows for use of lower heat settings in stovetop and oven cooking. On the table, a hot covered dish will keep food hot for second servings. Cast iron can also be used to keep foods cold.A chilled dish becomes an ideal cold food server on a hot summer day. It can also be placed in the freezer for food storage or advanced food preparation. Le Creuset cast iron cookware can be used on all heat sources including gas, electric solid plate or radiant ring, vitro-ceramic glass, induction, and ovens fired by gas, oil, coal or wood. When using any glass-topped stove, always lift the pan when moving it; never slide it, as this may damage the stovetop or the base of the pan.
Always match the pan's base size to the stovetop heat zone to maximize efficiency, and to prevent overheating of the pan sides or damage to the handles. Gas flames must always be confined to the base area, and must never extend around the sidewalls of the pan.
Long handles should be positioned safely where they do not hang over the front of the stove or other heat zones. Always cool a hot pan for a few minutes before washing. Do not plunge a hot pan into cold water. While Le Creuset's enamel is designed to be the most durable on the market, thermal shock may still occur, resulting in cracking or loss of enamel. If there are food residues, fill the pan with warm water and let soak for 15 to 20 minutes before washing.A brush can be useful for removing small food deposits, or for cleaning between the ribs on grills. Do not use scourers or abrasive cleaners on the cooking surface.
Nylon or soft abrasive pads or brushes can be used to remove stubborn residues. To avoid damaging the enamel, do not use metallic pads or harsh abrasive cleaning agents.
Light stains or metal marks caused by metal tools can be removed with Le Creuset cookware cleaner. An occasional cleaning with this product will also retain the new appearance of your pans. Never store pans while they are still damp. Store pans in a dry cupboard or airy space away from steam. Le Creuset enameled cast iron is extremely durable but it may be damaged if accidentally dropped or knocked against a hard surface.
