Le Creuset Ocean

There’s a reason why Le Creuset is a coveted name in stylish, busy home kitchens. This French cookware company has been manufacturing durable, beautiful enameled cast-iron cookware since the early 20th century. As a leader in the premium cookware industry, Le Creuset understands that truly wonderful kitchen tools balance form and function, providing a powerhouse of productivity in a beautiful package. Le Creuset Ocean is perfect for anyone who longs for the seaside, offering you the opportunity to bring a gorgeous shade of dusty blue into your home. Available as a finish on a variety of different cookware pieces in addition to bakeware and dinnerware, this color will make you think of misty mornings and blissful afternoons on the shore.


While color is certainly not the most important element of a piece of cookware, Le Creuset allows you to take this aspect into consideration more heavily because you can count on their legendary quality without question. Even back in their earliest days, Le Creuset’s founding craftsmen and managers incorporated color into their production. The original color, Flame, is a bright orange that looks wonderful in modern kitchens. But if your tastes tend more toward cool, earthy tones, Le Creuset Ocean is a perfect choice for you. Subtle and lovely, the Dutch ovens, braisers, griddles and plates in this color will add a gentle dash of tranquility to your home.


Part of what makes Le Creuset’s cast iron so valuable is the fact that it is forged in sand molds, a traditional method of casting iron that results in a sturdier, more carefully shaped finished product. This technique is painstaking and time consuming, but the end result is a piece of cookware that will be part of your kitchen for a lifetime. With proper care, you can continue using these cast iron pieces for everything from roasting to braising and simmering, even combining multiple methods for a single recipe. If you’ve never cooked with or cared for cast iron, you will be amazed at how excellent this material is.


That’s because cast iron can withstand high temperatures, and thanks to Le Creuset’s thoughtful design and construction, it can go from the stovetop to the oven without issue. That means you can use a cast iron pan to sear a steak on the stovetop before moving it to a hot oven to finish cooking through. You’ll build that coveted brown crust on the exterior without overcooking, and you won’t have to worry about melting components or damaging the metal. There are some cast iron grill pans in the Le Creuset Ocean color that may be perfect for this kind of cooking. Adding a cast-iron grill pan to your cookware collection is a great idea for those times when grilling isn’t an option.


Le Creuset Ocean is available in individually sold pots and pans in addition to full cookware sets. You can also select kitchen accessories in this shade, including kettles and cruets. To continue this color motif to your table, select a complete dinnerware set or a separate set of cups, bowls or plates. Made of fine, high-fired stoneware, Le Creuset’s dinnerware is durable and safe for use in the dishwasher, oven, broiler and microwave, making it a truly versatile choice for everyday plates and bowls. Like the cookware, Le Creuset’s dinnerware brings a refined design sensibility to high-quality materials with subtle detailing such as concentric ridges and color-gradient glazing that gives a subtle visual interest with an ombre effect. Le Creuset uses stoneware for its baking dishes too, giving you the same quality and strength that’s synonymous with the brand name. Whether you want cast iron cookware, dinnerware, bakeware or a combination of the three, the Le Creuset Ocean color is an excellent choice for the sophisticated to simplified home.
