For generations, families have come to cherish the classic cocotte. This everyday Oval French Oven (or Dutch oven, referred by most people) 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 in the pot, 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. Le Creuset offers Oval French Ovens in a variety of sizes, so whether you're cooking for two or twelve, we are sure to have an oven that suits your needs. Oval Ovens are ideal for simmering, marinating, poaching, braising and browning.
Le Creuset's Oval French Oven is an indispensable piece of cookware. Made of high quality enameled cast iron, this piece 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. Create a delicious soup or stew using Le Creuset's Soup Pots. The wide, shallow design and curved side edges make stirring efficient, so that soup will cook evenly and at the pace you dictate. The comfortable and ergonomic handles make for easy lifting and handling. The versatility of Le Creuset allows you to bring this stylish piece from the stove to the table.
