Enameled Cast Iron Casserole Braiser, 3.8 Qt - Red
Enameled Cast Iron
A smooth porcelain glaze, bonded to solid cast iron, creates beautiful enameled cookware! This results in all the benefits of cast iron, like superior heat retention and even heat distribution, without the downsides. Enameled cast iron doesn’t require seasoning, and it’s resistant to acidic and alkaline foods. Bright exterior colors and a creamy white interior add cheerful color to your kitchen!
Nonstick Casserole Pan
Enameled cast iron has a glossy, nonstick surface perfect for stir-frying, sautéing, braising, stewing, baking and more! Using a lower heat setting will prevent food from sticking. Metal utensils can scratch the porcelain finish, so use wooden, silicone or nylon utensils.
Large, ergonomic handles make it easy to move or lift your pan. Always use oven mitts or pot holders when handling the pan; the handles will be HOT!
Use the lid to marinate and store food as well as for braising, baking, simmering and making stews!
Enameled cast iron can be used on nearly all cooking surfaces, including induction, electric, gas and ceramic stoves. It can even be used in the oven, up to 500 degrees! Do not use on the grill or in the microwave. Cast iron should be heated and cooled gradually, so allow your pan to pre-heat for a few minutes before adding your food. Cast iron is excellent at retaining heat evenly, so you can use a lower heat setting with the same results!
Easy Use & Care
Enameled cast iron is dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing to maintain the glossy finish. Wash by hand with warm water and mild detergent, using a nylon pad or scraper if necessary.
Avoid placing hot cast iron into cold water. Metal scouring pads or utensils will scratch or chip the porcelain finish. Don’t use citrus-based detergents. Always lift the pan when moving it. Use oven mitts or pot holders when pan is hot.
