Enamel coated cast iron casseroles need some time to heat up, but they have excellent heat retention properties, making them the best choice to cook at low temperatures, both in cooktops and in the oven. Your favourite recipes and traditional dishes will have a unique flavour and food will keep warm until serving. Furthermore, you will be able to use the same casserole to preserve them, both in the fridge or in the freezer. And the more you use them, the better flavours and results you get, as cooking oil penetrates the enamel coating pores and creates a natural non-stick layer. Cocottes are not only to slow cooking, use them also to braise, stew, brown, caramelize, sear and even bake cakes.
