Renowned for its excellent heat retention, the casserole requires no seasoning and is suitable for stovetop and oven use. This versatile kitchen staple can be used for more than just comfort foods — experiment with no-knead bread or even use it to bake a cake!

  • Signature 5.3 Litre Round Cast Iron Casserole, 26cm
  • Perfect for simmering tender and succulent one-pot casseroles, preparing a risotto or a pot roast, serving a hot soup or a cold gazpacho, boiling pasta or vegetables and stewing fruit
  • Even heat distribution as the base, sides and lid are of equal thickness, preventing hotspots or heat loss
  • Casseroles retain heat once warm and can continue cooking on a lower heat setting, making it energy efficient
  • Tight-fitting lid locks in moisture and enhances flavour for perfectly cooked food
  • Oversized handles ensure an even weight distribution and give a secure grip
  • Base will never warp, maintaining the pot's stability
  • Great for keeping food warm while serving at the table, holding foods that are marinating or storing foods (raw or cooked) in the fridge or freezer
  • Durable enamel coating is hygienic, doesn't retain odours and is easy to clean
  • Colourful, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking
  • Phenolic lid knob is heat resistant up to 260°C

Care Instructions

 Before first use:

  • Wash in warm, soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly

How to cook with your casserole:

  • Always use oven gloves when handling anything hot
  • Use Le Creuset Silicone Tools, wooden, or heat-resistant plastic utensils — be gentle with metal utensils to avoid damaging the cooking surface
  • Match skillet size to hob ring for even cooking, this is extra important for induction hobs
  • Cook on medium or low heat, even for frying and searing, let the skillet heat up slowly and lower heat after reaching the desired temperature
  • Don't slide the skillet on glass hobs, lift it instead to avoid damage

How to clean your casserole:

  • Let your casserole cool before cleaning
  • Wipe off any leftover food from the base and sides — for stuck-on food, soak in warm, soapy water for 15 to 20 minutes before regular washing
  • Avoid harsh cleaners, metal scrubbers, and stiff brushes
  • Dry thoroughly after washing

Review by Debbie S. on 27 February 2013

I often use this pot for cooking mince, stews and soups.

I can start the cooking process with frying the ingredients and then bring it all to the boil before placing in a "hotbox" or wrapping it up in a duvet for the day! The cast iron retains heat wonderfully for cooking stewing meat and the cherry-red of my pot looks great displayed on the stove-top or being used for serving.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Staff Review

You can never go wrong with a Le Creuset cast iron pot. It is a real star for versatility and style. We got the new Mineral Blue colour and just love it. The colour is actually a lot more blue in real life. The size works well for stews, curries and even small roast's and is perfect if you are cooking for more than 3 or 4 people. I love it!

The heat distribution is perfect, it is a joy to go straight from the hob into the oven and the easy way it cleans make these pots well worth the investment, and a pleasure to use in the kitchen.
