April 23, 2010, Newsletter Issue #214: Le Creuset's Heritage

Tip of the Week

All the Le Creuset cookware is made from enameled cast iron, which has been used for cooking utensils since the Middle Ages. The Le Creuset factory in Northern France began producing cast iron in 1925 by hand-casting molten cast iron in sand molds. After casting, each mold is destroyed and the cookware is polished and sanded by hand then scrutinized for imperfections. The items are then sprayed with two separate coats of enamel and fired after each process at a temperature of 800C. The enamel then becomes extremely hard and durable. A piece of Le Creuset Cast Iron cookware is completely unique, since much of the finishing is done by hand.
