I am wholly romantic when it comes to fireplaces. I love their warmth and the crackling sound the wood makes as it burns and turns to ash. Given their natural coziness, it must be idyllic having one in the kitchen, don't you think?
Revered by both professional chefs and home cooks since its 1925 debut, Le Creuset's classic French cookware is prized for its utilitarian good looks, unsurpassed heat retention, and lids that create an even "blanket" of heat. Cast iron is clad in smooth, vitrified porcelain (here in kitchen-friendly cherry), rendering each piece impervious to acid, alkali, odors and stains. Non-reactive cooking surface does not require seasoning.
