At the turn of the twentieth century, a new global perspective on cuisine began to dawn. Dining, once a private activity, went public, and suddenly people experienced the delight of sharing a delicious meal in the company of friends. They went home to their own kitchens, eager to experiment and replicate. Soon, cooking became a way to connect with loved ones, a reason to gather together at the table.
In the midst of all the culinary innovation and change, Le Creuset introduced the first vibrant, Flame-colored enameled cast iron cocotte in 1925. This ground-breaking cocotte took a kitchen staple—cast iron cookware—and refined it, making it more functional, more beautiful and deeply joyful.
Since then, Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron cookware has been the world’s color and quality benchmark for almost a century. Ideal in the oven, on the stove or at the table, the iconic cookware is beloved for both its chip-resistant enamel exterior and superior heat retention that locks in flavor and keeps foods moist and tender.
