Are Le Creuset Pans Indestructible?

I've always been a fan of the French based cooking pot company. My father has a Le Creuset pot dating back to before I was born. My parents received it as a wedding gift and it is still going strong today after nearly 30 years of continuous use. If that's not a top class testament to the durability of these cast iron companions then I don't know what is. Two years ago my father decided to get me one as a gift for my birthday and I can honestly say it has been one of the best gifts I have ever received.

The Cookware With The Aesthetic Enamel

I love the bold Volcanic orange design, the smooth aesthetic feel of the enamel and the sheer weight in your hands, and that's before it's even filled with a stew or casserole. But how did it all begin for Le Creuset and how are they such a household name today?

Is This Indestructible Ironware?

First produced way back in 1925, at its forgery in France, the cast iron porcelain enamelled pot was born. Le Creuset still produce the cast iron pots from Fresnoy Le Grand and many of the manufacturing techniques remain the same today as they did back in the 20th Century to create their handmade cookware. It is this attention to detail and respect for its history that sets the company out from the rest.

One of the worst parts Ruqayya and I find about travelling is missing our Le Creuset 20cm Round Casserole. Back in London that thing got a licking most nights, literally I must add. Why settle for anything else in your kitchen?

You can pick one up from here:

Happy cooking. Do you have an ancient Le Creuset that just keeps on giving? We'd love to hear about it
