More about Le Creuset

The first Le Creuset foundry opened in 1925 in Fresnoy-le-Grand, France, and specialized in cast-iron cookware. The cast-iron pieces are still made at the original factory, using the traditional techniques of hand forging and casting in individual sand molds. The brightly pigmented porcelain-enamel glaze that first set Le Creuset cookware apart from other cast-iron cookware now comes in a wide range of traditional and contemporary colors. In 2013, Le Creuset began producing innovative stainless-steel cookware in Portugal with lids that incorporate the same signature three-ring design as the company’s classic cast-iron pieces. This stainless-steel collection was awarded the prestigious 2014 Red Dot Award for product design.



In 2019, Le Creuset has increased the Stoneware warranty from 5 years to 10 years.

This is a reflection of the confidence we have in our product performance and the company's commitment to producing quality stoneware.


The warranty covers faulty workmanship and/or materials when the product is used in normal domestic conditions in accordance with the care and use instructions provided. It does not cover normal wear and tear, commercial use or misuse of the product.

Defective stoneware will be replaced free of charge, or replaced by a similar product or one of equivalent value if the original product is no longer in production. Replacement with the same color cannot be guaranteed.


Damage caused by normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse or commercial use.

Scratches, stains, discoloration, corrosion or damage from overheating to the interior or exterior of the pan.

Consequential damage is expressly excluded from this warranty.


The warranty begins on the date of purchase by the original owner, whether a self-purchase or received as a gift.


To make a warranty claim, consumers should call the Le Creuset helpline at 1-877-CREUSET (273-8738) to obtain a Returns Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number prior to mailing their cookware to us.

Once an authorization number is received, the product should be mailed to the address below. We recommend using a traceable means to return the product as Le Creuset of America, Inc., is not responsible for damages or lost or stolen merchandise. A return address and a brief note explaining the defect should also be included. Turnaround time on returns is typically two to four weeks after receipt of an item.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great for Clear Stocks, Burns Everything Else I've had this pot for many, many years. It's a LeC classic. I loved the size, and it's great for making 16 quarts of chicken stock (plus carcasses to bring it to 20qt.). But just don't _dare_ to cook stew, or spaghetti sauce, or anything more than a broth with it. If you're going to use it to boil pasta, use the included inner basket (well, at least mine came with an inner steamer/pasta basket.) Otherwise it'll stick. and BURN!!! (I call it Trogdor!) I've attached a pic of my 25 year old pot, but it's looked like this since the first year, pretty much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for steaming, not for boiling... This enamel coated pot heats up fast. The enamel coating is not good for high heat...because it's not needed. I use this on my gas range and even at the lowest fire, this pot retains heat fast. When you purchase Le Creuset within its stores, the associates will kindly educate you how to use their products. You're given instructions on paper, which I think is imperative for us to learn if we want to see great results and for the sake of longevity of our prized Le Creuset. With that said, the enamel pots are not intended for boiling or cooking at high heat. I think it's great for steaming, simmering soups and stocks. I gave it 4 stars only because I hate that it leaves spots at the bottom (from heat) even at low fire. It easily chips on the handles, too. Other than that, food always comes out beautifully!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible pot. If you intend to actually cook with the pot forget it! Food instantly burns to the bottom of the pot, even under low heat. You may be able to heat water in it without a black burned on mess- maybe. It looks attractive; just don’t try to cook with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much loved gift. This was a requested Christmas gift for my darling daughter and son-in-law. They both enjoy cooking and appreciate quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hint for pot cleaning All steel pans will burn. Never use a higher flame on any of them. They heat fast. Use a small amount of salt and water on a low flame and let it cook for ten min turn it off and sit over nite. Bar Keepers will clean anything that might b left. Never use a metal spatula to scrape it off. Never. Oh, never use bar keepers on the enameled outside. It will damage it and permanently scratch yr sink surface. I only do this cleaning in my laundry rm sink where I keep the Bar Keepers.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not bother I have bought 2 of these, in two different sizes. The first one became very hard to clean and the enamel was pitted. I thought maybe I used it incorrectly, and bought another. The second is unusable after a year. We use this to cook pasta most of the time, and evidently boiling water wears off the enamel. Don't bother with this pot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked it until my husband made a stew in it. It burned on the bottom after leaving his brew on low on the cooktop. He knew I liked the pot, so he attempted to soak it. And soak it. He scrubbed, soaked, chiseled the burnt food from the pot. It's pretty much ruined right now, and I am more than a little upset. He HAS learned a lesson; but I am without my favorite go-to stock pot.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Le Creuset Enamel Steel Stock Pot My mistake not reading "fine print". I was expecting an enameled cast iron stock pot made in France. I received an enameled steel stock pot made in China. Why bother with "Le Creuset" if it is not made in France.
