LE CREUSET CASSEROLE
Winter is gone but the casserole is here to stay. A pasta ragu, or an earthy ratatouille is appreciated throughout the seasons. Le Creuset casserole is truly a one pot wonder that does it all from stews to slow cooked dishes, tender juicy roasts to freshly baked bread and cakes. Casseroles are perfect for an effortless meal with the Le Creuset Casserole transitioning from stovetop to oven.
Why Le Creuset? Established in 1025 in Fresnoy le Grand - France, Le Creuset have maintained their hand-crafted techniques even today. It is famous for heat retention and distribution, which is crucial for slow cooking.
Le Creuset casserole’s stylish range of cookware in beautiful colours make it a welcome guest at any dining table. This fantastic cookware will also surprise you with its ability to keep food at desired temperature during long, relaxed meals.
LE CREUSET WOK CERISE
Stir fries are a weekday dinner-time favourite, healthy and easy to make. All they need is high heat but this is where it can be tricky. Limp, brown and soggy stir fries are often the result of ingredient-overload and lack of heat.
“A great stir fry starts with the right pan”, says American wok master Grace Young. Woks made of poor quality materials might cause a significant drop in temperature as soon as the ingredient touches the surface.
For crisp and bright stir fries, look no further than Le Creuset Wok Cerise. Its flat base maximizes the surface area that touches the burner. Cast iron ensures maximum heat is distributed evenly from the bottom to the edge of the wok. Let it do the hard work, all you need to do is to select your favourite ingredients and sauces. This wok is another kitchen multi-tasker, doing well with braising, steaming and poaching.
It is quite easy to clean and maintain these kitchen classics. Both KitchenAid and Le Creuset are dishwasher-friendly. However, with cast iron, avoid plunging hot cookware into cold water as even the most durable on the market like Le Creuset might experience thermal shock. To remove any stubborn residues from cast iron, soak in warm water before washing and use a soft abrasive pad.
If you follow care instruction on these products, they are guaranteed to last a lifelong of artful cooking.
