BEFORE FIRST USE remove all labels. Wash in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Items with enamelled cooking surfaces are now ready for use and require no further preparation. Non-stick surfaces should be wiped with cooking oil to condition them
HEAT SOURCES Le Creuset cast iron cookware can be used on all heat sources. Gas, electric solid or radiant plates, vitroceramic glass, induction, and ranges fired by gas, oil, coal or wood.
- Black phenolic lid knobs and handles. Maximum use temperature 190°c / 375°f Gas 5 (Europe gas setting 6).
- Integral cast iron handles or stainless steel knobs can be used at any oven temperature. KNOBS will become hot during stovetop as well as oven use. Use a dry, thick cloth, or oven mitts, for handling these at all times.
MEDIUM AND LOW HEATS will provide the best results for the majority of cooking, including frying and searing. Allow the pan to heat gradually and thoroughly, as this will give the most even and efficient cooking results. Once the pan is hot almost all cooking can be continued on lower settings.
PLACE HOT PANS on Le Creuset silicone mats, wooden boards, or trivets. Never place a hot pan directly on an unprotected surface.
After use always cool a pan for a few minutes before washing in hot soapy water.
Rinse and dry thoroughly. DO NOT FILL a hot pan with cold water or plunge into cold water as thermal shock damage to the enamel may occur.
