      Cerise Product Map


      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.

      Cousances DoufeuThis item is available exclusively online and in Le Creuset outlet stores.

      The story of Cousances© began in 1553, when Jehan Barisien paid the lord of the manor for the right to cast iron. His foundry, the first cast iron cookware foundry in the world, was called Cousances. Four centuries after Cousances poured its first cocotte, fellow cast iron expert Le Creuset purchased the original Cousances brand and foundry in 1957. This expansion added an important chapter to Le Creuset’s story of French heritage and elegant craftsmanship.

      In celebration of the world’s oldest cast iron cookware foundry, Le Creuset’s Cousances line revives legacy designs shared by Cousances and Le Creuset for decades. The doufeu has a recessed lid that holds ice. As warm moisture evaporates inside the doufeu, the cool ice-filled lid causes this moisture to condense. Specially designed dimples on the flat interior of the lid then direct the moisture back down onto the food. This self-basting effect minimizes the need to add additional water during cooking.

      • Recessed lid with a dimpled underside distributes moisture evenly inside the pot
      • Colorful, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking; interior enamel is engineered to resist staining and dulling
      • Even heat distribution and superior heat retention
      • Built-in lid stabilizers provide a secure, no-slide fit
      • Side handles on both the lid and the base for offer added control
