Le Creuset - the world's leading manufacturer of cast iron cookware
The Le Creuset company was founded in France in 1925.
After their first meeting, Armand Desaegher and Octave Aubecq agreed to work together and defined the basic production process of the enamelled cast iron “Cocotte” that Le Creuset still use today. After they created a working prototype in 1925, Le Creuset was born.
Every pot and pan from Le Creuset is unique and valuable. The perfection in the production from the shaping to the finishing to the enamelling makes it so unique. Ever since the company was founded, the successful Le Creuset brand has stood for excellent quality and innovative product ideas for everything to do with cooking and enjoying. Le Creuset is popular in the best kitchens in the world - in over 40 countries.
In addition to maximum functionality, each piece is characterized by a unique design and its perfect ergonomics. The cast-iron roasters are modern classics and the result of almost a hundred years of refinement. They are passed down through generations and only get better with age.
Le Creuset roasters are checked at every stage of the process to ensure outstanding quality, durability and performance. Each roaster is hand-inspected by 40 experts who are responsible for checking every detail.
Le Creuset products are meant to last forever!
The variety of colors is Le Creuset's specialty and sets it apart from other manufacturers. The blending of rich pigments for the roasters is done with extreme precision to ensure consistency. Le Creuset offers a wide range of unique colors for every style of kitchen. It doesn't matter whether it's bold colors or pastel tones.
In addition to the color "Volcanic", which has become the trademark of the traditional brand, the special color Elysee Yellow, for example, was adored in the 1960s and even found its way into Marilyn Monroe's kitchen. Later, in 1999, Marilyn's collection was auctioned off at Christie's in New York for an incredible $25,300!
The pots, pans and molds are sprayed with at least two layers of enamel, which serve as both a protective and a colored layer.
Finally, the finished pieces are hand inspected and tested to the highest quality standards. Spare parts such as lid knobs and handles are added for the final touch.
