Whether it’s steak or meat for a hearty, slow-cooked stew – this perfect sized Le Creuset Cast Iron Shallow casserole will be your new best friend. The 26cm shallow Dutch oven features a wide base to allow for maximum contact between food and heat sources. Put your ingredients in a single layer to achieve proper searing for maximum flavour. Once the liquid is added, the domed lid continuously circulates steam to lock in those flavours and moisture.
Crafted at our original French foundry, our cast iron pieces are the stuff of culinary legend. This shallow casserole is no exception. The large flat shape and shallow sides make it perfect for browning meat and vegetables, simmering casseroles, stir-frying and baking. It enhances caramelisation, for moreish mouthfuls.
Also called ‘braisers’, buffet casseroles are great not only for searing but are also incredibly handy for marinating! Again, the wide base ensures you can marinate a generous amount of food in a single layer.
Whether you just moved into your first own place and need to complement your granny’s traditional hand-me-down kitchenware with iconic orange tones, or whether you’re a young professional couple looking for something sleek, the 26cm Le Creuset Round Casserole comes in a wide range of colours. These include the emblematic French colours of Marseille, Cerise, Meringue, the contemporary Satin Black, the iconic Volcanic and the new vibrant Caribbean Blue.
