The volcanic orange colour that is synonymous with Le Creuset products was based on the colour of the molten iron that was used to create every single pot. However, this is far from the only colour available. There are now more than 100 colours available in different countries around the world, ranging from bright colours like volcanic orange to soft, pastel colours.
More than 300 million Le Creuset products have now been manufactured, showing the popularity of this incredible brand.
Le Creuset can be found in the kitchen of celebrity chefs and in some of the biggest and best-known kitchens. They are also likely to be found in the home kitchens of some of your friends and family, such is their popularity.
History - Le Creuset was founded in 1925 by Armand Desaegher and Octave Aubecq, who met the previous year at the Brussels Fair. The foundry was built in Fresnoy-Le-Grande in Aisne, France. The location was chosen because of its access to trade routes that would bring coal, iron, and other base materials for the production of their new products. The first Le Creuset cocotte was manufactured.
The foundry was close to the front lines during World War II, and this meant that it was occupied by German forces. However, at the end of the war, the foundry started up production of cast iron kitchenware once again. They introduced a host of enamel colours and ramped up production levels, especially for exporting abroad.
The company has innovated throughout the years, since its inception. They launched a Grill model of their cocotte called the Tostador in 1955, followed by their first fondue set in 1962. In the following decades, the brand modernised its foundry and manufacturing processes. They launched their products to an increasing number of countries around the world, and have continued to expand their products and their reach in the 21st Century.
The Cocotte - The Cocotte, or the casserole was the product that launched the brand. It still takes 120 hours of work in order to create one of the cast iron pots. Every piece is unique with each mould being used only once and then thrown away immediately afterwards.
The cocotte is also known as a Dutch Oven, or simply a casserole dish. Casserole dishes can be used to stew, braise, bake and even boil. The high quality cast iron used in their production means that they will last for years, and there are reports of some of the very first cocottes made by the company still in use today.
Once the cast iron pots have been cast, they receive two coats of enamel that help ensure that the pan heats more evenly.
Other Pans - As well as the cast iron casserole dishes that fired the brand into global recognition, also offers ranges of stainless steel pans, and cookware manufactured from a host of other materials. 3 ply stainless steel pans are durable, look modern, and they come in different sizes making them ideal for boiling and preparing any of a host of different dishes and meals. Whatever materials they're made from, Le Creuset pans offer the same high quality and durability.
The Breakfast Set - The breakfast set incorporates pieces including cafetierres, cups or mugs, teapots, and even a butter dish. All of these items come in the same great range of colours as their other items, so if you want a butter dish or bowls to match your volcanic orange casserole dish, you can buy them from Le Creuset via ECookShop.
These sets are a great way to make sure that you start your day right. Enjoy your favourite cup of tea or coffee in the morning, use your frying pan to prepare an English breakfast, and spread your toast using butter from your Le Creuset butter dish.

Silicone Tools - The iconic brand specialises in many forms of kitchenware, not just pans and cookware. They provide silicone tools, such as the cool tray, which provides you somewhere safe to put your casserole dish or other pan once you take it off the heat. Spatulas, basting brushes, and spoon spatulas are just some of the other items that they also manufacture and that you can buy for your kitchen and dining room experience.
Textiles - A recent addition to the Le Creuset range is a line of textile kitchenware products. The textile range is a colourful collection of items like oven gloves and aprons.
