      Braiser Cast Iron Product - Features and Benefits

      ENAMELED CAST IRON

      Since 1925, Le Creuset cast iron has been recognized for its strength and durability. Cast individually in sand molds, then hand-inspected by French artisans, each piece represents a rich heritage and continues a tradition of lasting, authentic design.

      Heat Retention

      Cast iron distributes heat slowly and evenly over the entire vessel, making it ideal for all forms of cooking, whether slow-cooking, roasting, searing, stir-frying or baking.

      Smooth Interior Enamel

      The glass-like finish in our ovens and braisers promotes caramelization, resists staining and prevents sticking to make cleanup easy.

      Black Interior Enamel

      The black interior of our skillets is specially formulated for high-temperature cooking, and does not require seasoning.

        Comments about Le Creuset Braiser:

        Although I initially wanted the 3 1/2 qt braiser it was just too heavy for me to lift . This size is perfect for one or two people and in less than a week I have used it twice and am planning on making a number of dishes in the coming week(s) This is my new favorite "go to" pan.

          One of my go to pieces! I've used it to bake, poach, roast, braise, sautéed and to make a small paella. The bottom fits in my convection toaster oven too!

              The ONLY thing to use to braise meat. It heats evenly, has a handy lid for when you need one. You can cook meat on the stove top at a high heat to sear, then the entire unit can go into the oven to finish cooking. The enamel coating makes it much easier to clean compared to a standard cast iron skillet. We've had ours for 8-9 years so far and it's in great condition. It's the most used cooking dish in our kitchen.

                  Comments about Le Creuset Braiser:

                  I love cookware and this is my #1 go-to pan. If I had to choose a single pan, this would be it! I agree with other reviewers: this pan lives on my cooktop and I used it several times a week. It serves as a skillet, sauté pan, brasier, or wok and goes from stovetop to oven. I was torn between the 3.5 and 5 qt sizes and am glad I chose the 3.5. My typical dishes serve 4-6 people and it is the perfect size, plus I don't have to contend with the added weight of the 5 qt. Although I keep it out on the cooktop, I like the fact that it has 2 short handles instead of a long handle, which makes it easier to place in the oven and to store.

                  Comments about Le Creuset Braiser:

                  I am a Le Creuset fan for years but have been scared to go into the cast iron as was outside of my comfort zone. This is my first 3.5 quart and it's been amazing. My wife was nervous about it and the price but is now on the bandwagon too. It has never left our stove top except for cleaning since we bought it 3 months ago. We love it.

                    I'm getting even more adventureous than I was before trying out more elaborate cassoulets. I find that Dawn Platinum detergent and a 5 minute soak works better than anything for cleaning this pan. I love it. It was a great treat for myself. Go for it... you can cook a chicken, make eggs, and everything in between.

                      I'm a casual cook aspiring to become an avid cook. My braiser always sits on top of the stove and invites me to cook. So, I use it to cook poultry, veggies, fish, refried beans, and in quantities so that I can store additional meals for later in the week. Beautiful, too, so I could just set it on the table. The size is perfect for me and I love that it is so easy to clean even when I have a some burnt residue. A little baking soda does the job. The handles get hot, but is there a product where they don't? Le Creuset give me more confidence to experiment in my cooking. Thank you and the chef who introduced me to you.
