In the 1920s a food revolution was igniting in France with the Renaissance and culinary thinking catapulting French cuisine onto the world stage. On the heels of this radical change, and inspired by its passion for slow cooking, LeCreuset was born in 1925 with the creation of the original French Oven. LeCreuset's renkowned enamled cast iron cookware has been made by generations of passionate French craftsmen ever since. Dedicated artisans under one roof in the original foundry in the North of France continue that tradition of style and quality today. Every single piece of our enamled cookware passes through the hands of at least 15 artisans before leaving the foundry. Each unique black packed sand mold used to cast the cookware is destroyed after use insuring no two pieces are identical. The newly cast piece then receives at least two coats of enamel, a ground coat followed by a color coat ensuring a highly durable finish that resists chipping and cracking. Our passion for quality is apparent in the beautiful range of hand finished products that bear the LeCreuset name and with a lifetime warranty that guarantees them all. Your passion for distinctive cooking will be evident in the smiles on your and your family's faces. LeCreuset made by artisans for a lifetime of enjoyment.
