Le Creuset is a 90 year old world-famous French cookware manufacturer best known for their colorful enameled cast iron French ovens, also known as "Dutch ovens" or casseroles. These beautiful porcelain-enameled pieces are delightful accents to any kitchen and are still made in northern France using individual sand molds. Porcelain enamel glaze is easy to clean and resists chips, stains and scratches in normal everyday use. Each piece is carefully inspected to assure the highest possible quality. Le Creuset also makes traditional stainless steel cookware and charming specialty items such as whistling tea kettles.
