This Le Creuset pan from the Fonte enamel collection is made from solid cast iron. It is a robust, top-quality pan that will last for generations. There are so many things you can do with this cast iron grill pan. You can grill meat, fish and vegetables on all types of hobs, in the oven or over an open fire. With this grill pan, you can get those authentic grill stripes on each piece of meat. And the authentic grill flavour, too!
A big advantage of this pan is that you don't need to use very much fat when cooking. Another advantage is that any fat that is released is drained away from the food because of the ridges. You can use the pouring rim to pour out the excess fat. This also comes in handy when cleaning the pan.
Le Fonte enamel pans
Le Creuset Fonte enamel pans are cast in cast iron. A sand mould is made for each individual pan. This mould is filled with cast iron. The cast iron is then finished with a beautiful enamel non-stick coating, and the exterior features one of the characteristic Le Creuset colours. The result is a brilliant, heavy pan. A real style icon, which will last for generations. Because an individual mould is made each time, every pan is unique, so there may be subtle differences between them. This is one of the charming characteristics of these world-famous pans.
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 pans
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.
