How do great cooks get such great results? Part of the secret is using the right tools.
After years of begging Le Creuset to make their legendary pieces in purple, The Purple Store staff (and customers) got our wish. These Cassis Dutch Ovens / French Ovens are handcrafted in France in Le Creuset's legendary tradition with cast iron at the core and a triple coating on each piece. Le Creuset Dutch Ovens are a classic in quality kitchen tools. Their enduring quality, extraordinary versatility, and beautiful gradiated purple shade make them invaluable in the kitchen. Add a little color to your stove, then bring it to the table as a gorgeous centerpiece! As with our other purple Le Creuset pots, the coated cast iron metal retains heat beautifully so hot food stays hot while it's being served!
The oval shape is both attractive and often practical, giving a bit of extra room. Choose from the smaller 3 1/2 Quart Wide Oval Dutch Oven or the larger 6 3/4 Quart Wide Oval Dutch Oven (for longer roasts, soups, chili).
With high quality cast iron and flawless enamel, these purple pots are easy to use. They're great for slow-cooking on the stovetop, roasting in the oven, and serving delicious feasts. For best results, cook on low to medium-low heat - the cast iron will heat slowly and evenly, providing a regular temperature across the bottom of the pot for easy cooking. Even heat from all sides also means natural seasoning and food flavors get a better chance to blend.  The light tan interior is durable and non-reactive, preserving nutrients in your food and providing years of durable wear. These Le Creuset purple cast iron pots are easy to clean - just wipe down or lightly scrub the interior and exterior (avoid steel wool or other metal scrub brushes) or toss it in the dishwasher. Easy care instructions are shipped with each piece. For storage, they look handsome kept right on the stove or tuck them easily into the oven. Happy purple cooking!
