In the Le Creuset Round Casserole 26 cm Orange-red you prepare dishes for approximately 5 people. Ideal for a family or when you like to eat with a couple of friends. The pan is cast iron, so that it builds up and distributes the heat evenly. This makes the pan very suitable for stews. For example, make hachee or a fresh pasta sauce. Cast iron is also very durable. If you maintain the pan properly, it will last for years and maybe even generations. The pan is suitable for all heat sources, including induction and use in the oven up to any temperature. There are drip rings in the lid that evenly distribute the cooking liquid over the dish. This keeps the meat nice and tender and evenly cooked.
