You can prepare dishes for 4 to 5 people in the Le Creuset Oval Dutch Oven 29cm Flame Orange. It's the ideal pan for dinner with friends or for a family. Thanks to the oval shape, you can easily stew elongated pieces of meat, such as pork tenderloin or chuck roast. The pan is made of enameled cast iron. The heat conduction is very good and the inside is smooth, so that ingredients don't stick to the pan. Cast iron is also a durable material. If you maintain the Dutch oven 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 slowly cook a whole chicken in beer, for example.
