Le Creuset

Le Creuset

Known worldwide for individuality, imagination and freshness, Le Creuset combines both tradition and innovation.

 

Le Creuset began in 1924 two leading Belgian industrialists, Armand Desaegher and Octave Aubecq happened to meet at the Brussels fair. A year later they formed their first foundry in Fresnoy le Grand, France. This small French town was chosen for its strategic location as the crossroads of transportation routes for iron, coke and san.

In 1925 Le Creuset created their first porcelain enamelled cast iron pots. It was also around this time that Le Creuset created their signature colour (Flame Orange). This colour was seen as innovation in a world of bland appliances.  

Cast iron has been used as “the” material for cooking pots since Roman times. Even with today’s wide choice of cooking materials, cast iron, still forged and crafted by hand, reigns supreme with its versatility, good looks and ability to retain and spread heat evenly.

The Cocotte, or French Oven, was one of the first cast iron items produced by Le Creuset and is still the most popular item sold in a range of bright retro colours
