      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.

        I use this for everything from frying eggs to braising stews. If I had only one pan, this would be it. Sometimes I make soups in in. I cook for two. I LOVE this pan, no chemicals to leach, no aluminum to damage my body, and easy to clean.

        Comments about Le Creuset Braiser:

        My sons got me the 1 1/2 quart braiser a while back and I absolutely love it. It's perfect for small batches of pot roast or stew, paella, and similar dishes.

        It IS heavy. While that can be an issue for some seniors like myself, its weight is far outweighed by its positive qualities.

            Love, Love Love. I'm obsessed with Le Crueset. I just purchased a whole set and love it. The toughest part is getting used to adjusting cooking times because it does get so hot and cooks quickly. On my gas stove a "6" on my Le Crueset his HIGH heat. Now that I'm learning to adjust, I love it and will never own any other cookware,

                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.

                      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.

                          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.
