The Dutch oven, is ideally suited for slow roasting. Dutch ovens must be even-heating, lidded, big-handled and large. Ideally you want one with a heavy bottom. Le Creuset calls its ovens, ‘French Ovens‘ makes the consummate Dutch oven.
Since 1925, artisans at Le Creuset have been making richly enameled cast iron cookware in the French village of Fresnoy-le-Grand. Each piece from their line is individually created, coated, fired and inspected in order to bring you the finest quality cookware-to-tableware available. The cast iron construction is superior to other cookware because it absorbs and retains heat more efficiently as your pot roast, chicken and vegetables slowly braise and stew in the oven. The 6.75-qt. oval Dutch oven is fitted with two loop handles and comes with a domed lid to seal in the juices while your dish cooks. Oven-safe to 450 degrees.
