How do great cooks get such great results? Part of the secret is using the right tools. These, as you well know, our dear purple friends, are 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. 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 round oven shape is iconic and practical, great for all cooking projects (we recommend baking bread in your cast iron oven!). Choose from the smaller 5 1/2 Quart Round Dutch Oven or the larger 7 1/4 Quart Round Dutch Oven.
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. The light tan interior is durable and non-reactive, preserving nutrients in your food and providing years of durable use. These Le Creuset purple cast iron pots are easy to clean - just wipe down or lightly scrub the interior and exterior (no 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!
These purple, round, Dutch ovens are wider than saucepans and are a good bet for just about everything in your oven and on your stove: making soups and stocks, simmering, braising, browning, and frying. One of our staff makes a fantastic bread right in her Le Creuset French Oven with what she swears is one of the easiest bread recipes around.
