Casserole (cast iron)

Le Creuset

Established 1925

Founded in 1925 by Armand Desaegher and Octave Aubecq, Le Creuset is a French cookware manufacturer best known for its enameled cast iron casseroles. Le Creuset improved the versatility of cast iron cookware by coating it in a porcelain enamel glaze. Their iconic casserole, or cocotte, was the first pot in production and is still its most popular piece. The Vulcanic orange, which resembles the orange hue of molten cast iron inside a cauldron, grew out to become Le Creuset’s signature colour.
