Le Fonte émaillée pans
Le Creuset Fonte émaillée pans are cast in cast-iron. For each individual pan a mould is made from sand. This mould is filled with cast-iron. It is finished with a nice enamel non-stick coating. The outside is enhanced with one of the characteristic Le Creuset colours. The result is a decent, heavy pan. A real style icon, perfect to last for generations. This method makes every pan unique, subtle differences can, after all, not be ruled out. One of the characteristic features of these world-famous pans.
Clean the pan just before the first use and dry it well. In addition, always select a fitting heat source to match the base diameter of the pan. With a gas hob make sure that the flames cannot spread around the sides of the pan. The flames should only hit the base. Also don't immediately place the hot pan under a cold tap, this could damage it. Make sure it has enough time to cool off. This pan is not dishwasher proof because of the wooden handles.
History of Le Creuset pans
The basis for the success of the Le Creuset pans started in 1924 at the fair in Brussels. Armand Desaegher (specialist in cast-iron) and Octave Aubecq (specialist in enamel) joined forces and decided to establish a company. It turned out to be an amazing decision. Ever since 1925 they have been conquering the world with the enamel Le Creuset pans.
Throughout the years Le Creuset has continued to innovate. Time and time again one returned to the drawing board for new designs, models and colours. This urge to innovate is the reason that today, over 90 years later, these iconic pans are still the best in the world. Unparalleled production quality and leading designs and colours have turned Le Creuset into an icon.
