Founded in 1925, French cookware company Le Creuset has long been the iconic, de facto brand for enameled cast iron cookware. Famously used by Julia Child, Le Creuset is found the world over in the kitchens of premier restaurants, cooking academies, and the homes of discriminating cooks.

Still made in France, and at consider expense, Le Creuset ovens are cast in sand, and ensure the enduring quality that has allowed them to be passed down as many as three generations and counting.

Le Creuset Signature replaces "Classic," featuring extra layers of protective enamel, larger, more comfortable handles, and a completely redesigned knob that allows an easy grip that does not snag fingers on release.

Today's cooks demand the flexibility to go from stove top to oven, and Le Creuset's history, performance, and endurance provideĀ this quintessential tool for the kitchen, settingĀ the standard for enameled cookware.
