Name:Le Creuset Classic Cast Iron 20cm Round Casserole Black
Description:The Satin Black range has a unique, satin interior finish and is especially suited for higher temperatures in cooking. The interior surface is a satin black enamel and is NOT a non-stick surface. It does not need to be seasoned before use and will gradually build up its owns 'patina' which will cover the whole cooking surface giving enhanced release of foods and greatly reduced amounts of pre-greasing or oiling.
How to use Satin Black Before use remove any labels or packaging and wash the pan in hot soapy water, rinsing and drying it thoroughly. USE ONLY MEDIUM AND LOW HEAT SETTINGS, allowing the pan to heat through gradually and evenly. Once the pan or grill is hot a lower temperature will often maintain the correct level of heat.DO NOT PRE-HEAT ON HIGH, then lower the heat to medium or low. Cast iron is a very efficient material, retaining heat well. If overheated, it will retain considerable heat for a long period of time and this form of miss-use may contribute to sticking and poor cooking results. ALWAYS COOL ANY PAN FOR A FEW MINUTES before washing.
When possible rinse the pan in hot water and wipe over the surface with a damp cloth. This may be possible if the pan is used for regular cooking of foods where the food residues are minimal.
For more thorough washing use hot soapy water, then rinse and dry thoroughly. Allow the brownish black patina to build over the cooking surface as this greatly enhances the cooking and release performance of foods from the surface The lifetime guarantee covers faulty workmanship and materials when the product is used in normal domestic household conditions, and in accordance with the care and use instructions provided.
