The generous size and depth of the Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Chef's Oven makes this the ideal vessel for soups, pastas, braising and even baking. The sloped sides increase the efficiency and effectiveness of stirring by promoting continuous movement even with the lid in place, and the depth provides ample room for simmering. The exceptional heat distribution and retention of enameled cast iron locks in flavor, while large loop handles are designed for easy lifting and provide a steady grip when transferring a full pot from stove to oven to table. Durable and easy to clean, the colorful enameled surface requires no pre-seasoning and minimizes sticking and staining.
