100% Made in France since 1924
CHASSEUR is the cast-iron casseroles & grill brand of INVICTA, one of the world rare cast-iron foundry and enameling plants. Established since 1924 in Donchery, in France, INVICTA is actually the European leader of wood & pellet stove, all made of cast-iron. It has always produced enameled casseroles, but the founder and sons who took over what was initially a family business were devoting most of their capacities and marketing budgets to creating successfully a stove European leader. Strong of its positions, its accumulated cast-iron knowledge for a century, the most recent owners have decided to give CHASSEUR the production capacities and marketing allowances it deserves: those of an extreme premium high quality of French culinary tools.

Why Enameled Cast-iron Casseroles?
Enameled cast-iron is ideal for simmering, roasting, or simply reheating thanks to its unquestionable properties:
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.
