Iconic cast iron cookware from France.

Description

EXCLUSIVE HAND MADE Le Creuset’s iconic French oven is the perfect choice for slow cooking, simmering soups and stews, roasting meats and much, much more. This French oven’s unmatched versatility and superior cooking performance make it an addition to your kitchen that you’ll use every day.

HANDCRAFTED IN FRANCE
At the Le Creuset foundry in northern France, molten iron is sand-cast from a single mold that’s destroyed after use, explaining why no two pieces are exactly alike. Le Creuset legendary cast-iron French ovens are sand-cast, polished and finished by hand, then sprayed with two coats of enamel and fired twice. No other procedure yields cookware that performs as well.

EVENLY CONDUCTS AND RETAINS HEAT
Since Le Creuset’s enameled cast-iron cookware evenly distributes heat, the French oven is perfect for slow cooking everything from soups and sauces to chili and chowder. You can also use your French oven for braising meat, roasting whole chickens, making classics like beef bourguignon, or even baking a cake!

DESIGNED TO MAKE COOKING AND SERVING EASIER
A re-engineered lid makes sure it stays more securely in place and locks in more flavors. Built-in lid stabilizers create a no-slide fit, and the slip-resistant composite knob is heat resistant to 500°F. Oversized handles (now 45% larger) provide even weight distribution and a secure grip.

THE BEST MATERIALS FOR A LIFETIME OF USE
The smooth, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking, while the durable interior sand enamel is engineered to resist staining and dulling. With a wide range of sizes and vibrant colors, you’re sure to find just the right one.

Suitable for all heat sources: electric, gas, halogen, and induction. Broiler, freezer, stovetop and oven-safe to 500°F. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended.

Great French Oven
I have this French oven and I love it. Everything I cook in it comes out perfect. It is of superior quality. I strictly follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions and wash it by hand. Nothing sticks and it is easy to clean.
It is very heavy
December 5, 2013
Love the oval shape
This is the perfect go to for roasts and stew. Every kitchen should have one. You can brown the meat on the stove top and then pop it in the oven with vegetables to slow cook -- delicious! Meats come out tender and flavorful.

The perfect wedding gift!
The bride and groom didn't realize they needed this until it arrived! This should be on everyone's registry. This will give them a lifetime of use and they will never tire of using it.

Nice Product
We bought this as a gift for a person who loves to cook and entertain. She already had wonderful experiences cooking with Le Creuset and was very happy to receive an addition to her collection. The French Oven is nice for slow cooking a lot of food. The color we chose was the red that matched her collection. All in all a good buy, especially when on sale.

What are the dimensions of the 3.5qt oval oven?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This French oven is 10 1/2" long and 4" deep. It's 6 1/2" tall with the lid on
Hello all. Is this item the "wide" variety with 3 1/2" sides or the classic French oven with 6.5" sides? Thanks to all in advance.
julie m on Feb 13, 2016
What size chicken or roast will fit in this 3.5 at size?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've cooked free range chickens that were 3+ lbs. in mine.
What is the NUMBER stamped on the bottom?
julie m on May 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 25
When the recipe says you can roast the chicken in a Dutch or French oven or a roasting pan, will the chicken brown just as well in either of these pans? Do you use the cover on the Dutch or French oven when roasting in the oven? Do you follow the same cooking instructions?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you will be able to achieve the same results, however, a Dutch or French oven will require more liquid, whereas, the roasting pan will need more air circulation. If you use the Dutch or French oven, you will want to cover with the lid.
How much does this pan weigh?
joann f on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 8.2 lbs
How do you prevent food from sticking?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've never had this problem with the product but you might spray the bottom and sides before putting in the food. Hope this helps.
I have a glass stove top. Both outside cooking surface dimensions. it says 10.5 but doesn't give the other dimension (wide) - what is the wide dimension????
susan c on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The actual dimensions of the flat bottom that would touch your stove are 6.25"X 8.25. The pan bevels out to the 10 x 8 inches.
What is the best way to clean this piece? Hand wash, but with what? Do I have to just soak everything off?
Marie S on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I find this vessel very easy to clean. I start with a soak in warm water, with maybe a little soap, then use a nylon bristle scrub brush to remove any stuck food - most comes off very easily. The final touch is a "soft scrub" pad and soap, dry and it's ready for the next meal. Good luck!!
Can this be used on a glass top stove?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My guess is yes but you need to read the instructions and hopefully that will tell you- otherwise, call Surlatable. I love the oven.
is this better to use than the round 3 1/2 qt dutch oven?
Connie B on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Both wonderful but I do not have the round but feel, for my purposes, the oval would be better.
Is the Figue color "dark purple" ?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not really a dark purple. There is a bit more sophistication as it is blue-purple.
Can you use on induction cooktops?
A shopper on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can.
