The Le Creuset Cherry Signature Round French Oven makes a thoughtful gift for that budding gourmand or talented chef in your life. They'll be sure to appreciate its classic cast-iron construction and stunning red enamel exterior. Heat distributes evenly over the piece's bottom no matter the heating source (oven-rated up to 500°F; gas, electric, or induction stove safe). The heavy-duty, no-slide lid helps to prevent boil-overs and keep moisture and pressure locked in with the dish. 3.5-, 4.5-, 5.5-, 7.25-, and 9-quart sizes are available. Pieces are dishwasher safe. About Le Creuset of America Inc. From its cast iron cookware to its teakettles and mugs, Le Creuset is a global standard of inimitable color and quality. Founded in 1925 in the northern French town of Fresnoy-Le-Grand, Le Creuset still produces enameled cast iron in its original foundry. Its signature color, Flame, was modeled after the intense orange hue of molten cast iron within a cauldron (or creuset in French), and has been a Le Creuset bestseller from the company's first year to the present day. Though best known for its vibrantly colored cookware and original inventions such as the Dutch oven, Le Creuset has also forged a name as a creator of stoneware mugs and enamel-coated stainless steel teakettles. The style and performance of Le Creuset's Cafe Collection and tea accessories are rooted in classic French cookware: bold colors, cylindrical loop handles, unmatched thermal resistance and heat distribution, and of course the iconic Le Creuset three-ring accent. Through its consistent qualities of authenticity, originality, and innovation, Le Creuset maintains a connection to both heritage and modernity. Made from heavy-duty cast iron. Striking red-colored enamel exterior. Piece is dishwasher safe. Limited lifetime warranty. Multiple sizes available (see description).
