- 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonC from This is an excellent deep skillet I am submitting this review because of several reviews discussing how difficult this skillet is to clean. I simply followed the cleaning instructions - it was easy to clean. I would purchase this again and elated that ignored the bad reviews.Date published: 2019-12-01Rated 3 out of 5 by kodancer86 from Lost black enamel coating immediately :( I received this beautiful pan as a gift, and after the first 2 times of using and only hand washing with a soft sponge, I noticed white splotchiness all over the black enamel. I tried dishwashing it just in case, since the pan says it is dishwasher safe...the splotch marks have not gone away. I'm not sure if it's still safe to use, but either way the look is not what it should be.Date published: 2019-09-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Greener Mom Mom from Great looking and cooking deep skillet I purchased this skillet about a month ago to make baked beans in. I usually use black cast iron skillet and wanted one with color. This is my second Le Creuset purchase and I am very pleased. The skillet cooked evenly and was easy to clean. It was expensive but I splurged to have such a pretty, and functional skillet.Date published: 2019-07-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhonda from Love this skillet I have a large family so had been looking for a large cast iron skillet. I purchased the 13”. And I can make enough fried potatoes to feed my family of six in this skillet. Saving my money for another one.Date published: 2019-04-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Seasidej from Weighty, Yet Wonderful While I can barely lift this weighty skillet, it does an excellent job of evenly browning meat and cooking at a consistent temperature. I don't think it is deep enough to label as a deep skillet. The depth is comparable to my other similar-sized skillet. Cleans easily.

Can you tell me what the difference is between the 3 1/2 quart cast-iron round Dutch oven and the 3 1/2 quart Essential Dutch oven? Hi Fredda, The Essential Dutch Oven has sloped sides and is a bit wider and heavier than the Round Dutch Oven. Sloped sides facilitate easy stirring; wide cooking surface is ideal for browning and searing.Date published: 2019-12-08
Is there a lid (preferably glass) that would fit this 13" cast iron skillet?Hi kelbelle, Unfortunately, there is not a glass lid that will fit the 13" skillet but the lid from the 13.25 qt. Signature Round Dutch Oven will fit.Date published: 2019-11-13
What's the difference between the Deep Skillet and Fry Pan? The 12 inch diam Deep Skillet is 1/4" higher but 11 oz lighter according to the website dimensions and I am trying to understand and select the right product for me.Hi tictactoe, The main difference between the skillet and the fry pan is the weight. The skillets are slightly thinner cast iron molds, which is why they weigh less.Date published: 2019-07-15

Is this skillet good for cooking steak at high temps?Hi Roon, Cast iron skillets tend to be the best for searing steaks because it’s naturally nonstick, it retains heat wonderfully, and the material gives a better sear than a stainless steel pan.Date published: 2019-03-22
