Why Enameled Cast-iron Casseroles?

Enameled cast-iron is ideal for simmering, roasting, or simply reheating thanks to its unquestionable properties:

  • spreads heat evenly, for slow cooking and saving energy
  • resistant to high temperature
  • absorbs and retains heat to keep food hot
  • compatible with all types of hob
  • easy to use and keep clean
  • hard wearing
 

Care recommendations

CHASSEUR sets a double layer of enamel, with black on the edges to protect from corrosion. Indeed, the enamel prevent the cast-iron to oxidize, a natural consequence of iron in contact with humidity even though not dangerous for health. And it helps as well to cook with natural non-stick properties. However strong and solid, take scrupulous care of the enamel layers to keep those properties: don't use sharp tools or knives which with time will damage the enamel. Prefer using wooden tools. Don't scratch strongly when washing as well.
