Cook yourself happy
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 Le Creuset’s original French foundry, their 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.
Handmade in France since 1925, Le Creuset casseroles are famous the world over and come with a lifetime warranty!

Before first use
Wash your Le Creuset product in warm, soapy water; then rinse and dry thoroughly.
Stay protected – always use oven gloves when handling anything hot. We recommend using Le Creuset Silicone Tools or wooden/heat-resistant plastic tools. Metal utensils may be used with care but they should not be used harshly or scraped over the cooking surface as this may cause damage. Use the product on the most appropriately sized hob ring — it’ll make your food cook more evenly, and reduce the risk of damage to the handles and sides. This is especially important on induction hobs: if you use the wrong-sized ring, there’s a risk the hob won’t ‘recognise’ the product. Cooking on medium or low heat gets the best results — even for frying and searing. Let the product heat up gradually for great tasting food that’s cooked evenly. If you do need to use a higher heat, lower the setting once the desired heat has been reached. Never slide the product on any glass-topped hob/stovetop, as this may cause damage to the product base and the glass. Instead, always lift the product on and off, or across the surface.
Wait for your product to cool down before you start cleaning it. Wipe any leftovers off the base and sides of the product. If there’s food stuck on, fill the product with warm, soapy water and let it soak for 15 to 20 minutes before washing as usual. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or metal, harsh abrasive or very stiff cleaning pads or brushes on any of the surfaces. Dry well after washing and store in a dry place.
