The oval shape of this casserole makes it ideal for cooking a whole chicken or a leg of lamb. It's also best for slow cooking, stews and soups. Its heavy lid with unique concentric rings create a self-basting effect that keeps your food tender and moist while retaining the flavour. A 27cm oval cocotte typically serves 4 to 6 people. This product is made in France. It provides all the benefits of cooking with cast-iron including compatibility with use of induction and other cook tops.

Use and Care:
- To prevent food from burning and sticking to the cocotte, ensure that only low to medium heat is used. Never use the high heat setting. Never use the booster setting on induction stove. Make sure that the pan is heated well before putting food in
- Do not heat empty - put a little oil or lightly smear the cocotte with greased absorbent paper before cooking
- We advise against routinely putting enamelled cast iron cookware in the dishwasher. These machines use specific cleaning products that can tarnish and damage the enamel. Avoid the dishwasher completely for items with wooden handles
- Avoid drops and knocks, especially on the edges of the product, to keep it free of chips and in tip-top shape. Do not use metal scrapers or other metal utensils. Do not cut up food inside your pot, pan or dish, or you may damage the enamel
- Dry the cookware completely after washing before storing it away. If, despite this, some rust patches should appear - which is not dangerous - rub a little cooking fat on the affected spots. For cookware with black matte enamel - you might see white spots after use, caused by minerals from water or starch from food. Follow the same instructions for drying and putting a layer of oil on the matte black enamel
