The Le Creuset Signature Chef's Oven is well-suited to a variety of cooking tasks. Simmer soups, braise meat, and even bake bread or cake in this chef's oven made from cast iron for even heat distribution and superior heat retention. The sloped sides facilitate stirring, and 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.
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.
