You prepare dishes for about 4 people in the Le Creuset Oval Casserole 27cm Black, the ideal pan for a family or if you like eating with friends. Thanks to the oval shape, you can easily stew elongated pieces of meat, such as pork tenderloin or beef rags. The pan is made of enameled cast iron. This makes the heat conduction very good and the inside smooth, so that ingredients do not stick to the pan. Cast iron is also a durable material. If you maintain the pan properly, it will last for years and maybe even generations. Thanks to the even heat build-up and distribution, the pan is very suitable for stews. You can make a vegetable stew or prepare a whole chicken that you slowly cook in beer, for example.
