Le Creuset began producing its first porcelain enamelled cast iron pots in 1925 from its foundry in Fresnoy le Grand, France. While Le Creuset has expanded the types of products it offers and has taken advantage of many technological advances, some things have not changed in the manufacture of Le Creuset’s cast iron. The company has continued to use the hand-crafted techniques and the original process of forging and casting in the manufacturing of its cookware with an attention to its heritage that is also characteristic of their designs.
Today, Le Creuset is recognised the world over for its premium quality ranges of enamelled cast iron cookware, multi-ply stainless steel, toughened non-stick, stoneware and ceramics. Their innovation remains at the forefront of the culinary industry and is used by leading chefs and keen cooks around the globe.
