Le Cuistot Vieille France cookware is made from heavy cast iron and is coated in a durable porcelain enamel finish
on both the interior and exterior. The enamel coating prevents rusting and eliminates the need to season the cookware. The stylish shapes and colors
of Le Cuistot, and its excellent heat retention
characteristics, make it perfect for serving food from the stove or oven, straight to the table.
- Safe for use on all cooking surfaces, and safe for use in the oven at any temperature including under the broiler.
- Knobs are made from classic cast stainless steel for good looks and durability.
- Recommended cooking utensils are heat-resistant Silicone, heat-resistant plastic, and wooden utensils in order to protect the surface.
- Each piece comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
- The slick porcelain enamel finish makes it a favourite amongst many cooks because it is easy to clean.
- Constant dishwashing may lead to some dulling of the enamel finish. The dulling is not harmful and will not impair performance.
- TIP: Although porcelain enamel cast-iron cookware is somewhat non-stick, you'll significantly cut your washing time if you wash them soon after use, rather than allowing food to sit in them.
- TIP: If the enamel on this cookware is chipped, exposing the underlying iron, that area may rust if exposed to water for too long (avoid soaking if this is the case).
- TIP: For stubborn stains pour 1 pint of water and 1 tsp. of bleach into a stained enamel coated cast iron pot, and soak for 2 to 3 hours before washing with soap and water.
- TIP: For stubborn residues, nylon or soft abrasive pads or brushes can be used. Do not use metallic pads or harsh abrasive cleaning agents as these will damage the enamel.
- TIP: Maintain the tightness of affixed handles and knobs by checking and re-tightening them regularly.
- CAUTION: Enameled Cast Iron is extremely durable, but it may be damaged if dropped or knocked against a hard surface.
