This Le Creuset Legumier never makes it to the cupboard: it goes from the stove or oven to the table to the dishwasher then back to the stove for tomorrow's dinner. If there are leftovers, save them for tomorrow. You can store it in the refrigerator or in the freezer and not worry about food reacting to the porcelain enamel surface. Ideal for simmering, marinating, poaching, braising and browning.
Le Creuset cookware is made of high quality enameled cast iron, and resists chipping, cracking, scratching and rusting, keeping the cookware looking new long after purchase. Cast iron distributes heat evenly, gently cooking foods at low temperature settings, maximizing flavor content and energy efficiency.
