Cast iron cookware’s heat retention properties, along with its porcelain enameled finish, make this cookware ideal for casual lifestyle. This oven to table cookware is cast from fine grain heavyweight iron for superior performance. The cast iron is then fired with a heavy porcelain enamel coating, which promotes low fat cooking, excellent food release, and does not impart unwanted flavors or odors. Long lasting porcelain enamel is also easy to clean, and gorgeous to look at. The sturdy tight-fitting lid is specially textured to seal in and recirculate moisture, self-basting your food for deliciously juicy results.
