This shallow round Dutch oven from Le Creuset has a wider base for searing and browning. The shallow depth is ideal for stirring and reducing sauces, and makes it easy to serve casseroles and stews directly from the pot at the table. The dome-shaped, tight-fitting lid helps retain heat, moisture and flavor. Wide loop handles offer a secure grip and even weight distribution for easy lifting while wearing oven mitts. The lid features a stainless steel knob.
Named after the allium fundamental to French cuisine, Shallot is a whisper of color between the palest shades of purple and pink. Le Creuset suggests pairing this delicate next-generation neutral with Meringue or Oyster as you add to your collection. The exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking. The durable, nonreactive interior enamel promotes caramelization, resists staining, and prevents sticking to make cleanup easy.
