I love cooking with my family. From a very young age, my mother and my Nana always made us part of the cooking process. I have recipes from great-great grandmother that I still use today. I also knew from early-on that better cookware makes better meals. Le Creuset is the worldwide standard of high-performance cookware. it began when Armand Desaegher, a casting specialist, and Octave Aubecq, an enameling expert, recognized an opportunity to improve the versatility of cast iron cookware by coating it in a porcelain enamel glaze. The heat retention and even heat-distribution that Le Creuset cookware provides makes a real difference on the stove-top and in the oven. We have the Heart Casserole by Le Creuset. You get the performance and quality of cooking in Le Creuset enameled cast iron with the adorable (and romantic) heart-shapes design. Its functional 2-quart capacity allows for preparing a variety of recipes, while its heart-shaped lid still seals in heat and moisture like all Le Creuset enameled cast iron ovens. It has:
Scalloped side handles
Even heat distribution and superior heat retention for cooking on the stove top or finishing in the oven
Durable, nonreactive sand-colored interior enamel provides a smooth surface for cooking, as well as an optimal palette for food presentation
Colorful, long-lasting exterior enamel that resists chipping and cracking
A secure lid that locks in heat and moisture while cooking
Phenolic knob withstands temperatures up to 375°F
