Maintaining the pan
Clean the pan before use and dry it properly. Always choose a heat source that is the appropriate size for the base diameter of the pan. When using a gas hob, make sure that the flames cannot spread up the sides of the pan. The flames should only hit the base. Also, don't immediately put the hot pan under a cold tap, as this could damage it. Make sure it has enough time to cool down first. This pan is dishwasher-safe. However, please note that with frequent use, this could affect the enamel finish.
History of Le Creuset
The foundations for Le Creuset's success were laid way back in 1924 at the Brussels Stock Exchange. Armand Desaegher (specialist in cast iron) and Octave Aubecq (specialist in enamel) joined forces and decided to establish a company. This turned out to be a winning combination. Ever since 1925, they have been conquering the world with their enamel Le Creuset pans.
Le Creuset has continued to innovate throughout the years. Time and time again, they returned to the drawing board to develop new designs, models and colours. This urge to innovate is the reason that today, over 90 years later, these iconic pans are still the best in the world. Unparalleled production quality and trendsetting designs and colours have turned Le Creuset into an icon.
