Le Creuset: Everything to Know For All Skill Sets and Budgets!

First of all, Le Creuset started with their famed Cocotte, a covered casserole, back in 1925.  Their attention to detail with high quality enamel products continued to thrive after World War Two.  From Fresnoy le Grand France, Le Creuset soon started to export to all of Europe, the west to North America.  Earning the reputation as an Indusrty Leader, backed by 99 years of success, ensures purchasing anything Le Creuset will be a valuable addition to any kitchen for years to come.

Being the best doesn’t always add up to a big money buy.  Williams Food Equipment has the largest selection of Le Creuset kitchen products in all of Canada.  Free gifts are included! And, as always, the greatest prices available on all factory first products.  With prices starting at a mere $9.99, with a FREE Silicone Trivet set included ( a $19.99 value!), shopping for oneself or gifting to that lucky someone is painless and affordable.

When searching Le Creuset on Williams Food Equipment, over 500 items appear!  We truly have all things Le Creuset!  Staying on a budget, the Le Creuset 1 Quart  Flame French Oval Dutch Oven is a great start in acquiring a Le Creuset kitchen.  On sale at only $144.99, with the FREE Silicone Trivet set, this Dutch Oven features:

Le Creuset Dutch Oven

  • Ideal Heat Distribution & Superior Heat Retention
  • Durable, Nonreactive Sand-Colored Interior
  • Crack and Chip - Resistant Exterior Enamel
  • Heat and Moisture Locking Recessed-Edge Lid
  • 45% Larger handle, easier to grip out of the oven
  • Oven safe with heat resistant knobs to 500°F
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Made in France

We feel the Lifetime Warranty speaks for itself.  Le Creuset products simply last almost forever!  A great tip we learned is to retain those four little clear, plastic clips that come in all Le Creuset enamel pots and pans with lids.  Once you have finished preparing your masterpiece, and have cleaned your Dutch Oven, and now it is cool and ready for storage, simply replace those clips to ensure no scratching ever occurs.  These pots, pans, and all Le Creuset products are tough enough in any environment.  But, for those who want to keep their cookware as pristine as out of the box, re-clipping is a neat trick.

Le Creuset is full of neat tricks already.  The porcelain enamel perfected almost 100 hundred years ago provides a barrier against flavors and odors from the last meal bleeding into the next delicacy cooked.  The lids lock in flavor and moisture.  They knobs are good under 450!  These are heavy!  Heavy, with a beautifully flat bottom guarantees even cooking and extra heat retention.  This enables your soup or casserole to turn out perfect by simply killing the heat source a half an hour prior to serving up your delightful concoction!

Cornbread, eggs, burgers, and steaks sizzle in the Le Creuset skillet line!  The Le Creuset 10” Marine Iron Skillet at only $139.99 (again with FREE Trivet Set included!), is a true value for the novice, to experienced chef.  As the description on our site states:

Cast iron skillets have long been treasured kitchen staples for stovetop frying and oven baking. Over time, the matte black interior enamel develops a natural patina that is ideal for searing and frying. Pour spouts on two sides allow for drip-free pouring.  This kitchen classic is a practical size for making steak, burgers, chicken, fish, cornbread, frittatas and even pie.

Le Creuset Skillet

  • 10.25"D x 17"L
  • Capacity of 1.75 QT (1.66 L)
  • Helper handle adds comfort and control when lifting
  • Spacious cooking surface for multiple servings or larger ingredients
  • Durable black enamel finish requires no seasoning
  • Even heat distribution and superior heat retention
  • Colorful, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking

Some great tips and tricks for your new Le Creuset Skillet is to add your oil, and or fat to the skillet after the skillet has come up in temperature.  About 4 minutes at medium heat, safeguards against sticking when then adding the olive, canola, or butter to the skillet.  A nice sheen ensues!  Evenly allow that fat to coat the entire skillet before adding your precious ingredients.  By doing this, everything, and we mean everything, comes out as intended.  Crispy, flavorful, and a no fuss clean transpire due to nothing stuck in this Le Creuset skillet!

Staying on a budget, and thinking of that home chef we all know, the Le Creuset set of 8 Candy and Nut Bowls are the perfect birthday gift on sale at $29.99.  And, by chance, that gift wasn’t what he or she expected, always a Hassle-Free Return.  These bowls aren’t just for laying on a coffee table, they can be microwaved, stuck in an oven at 500, be frozen, and a broiler is just fine too.  Great for French Onion Soup!
