Throughout the centuries people all over the world have been cooking delicious meals in dutch ovens. Our ancestors realized that preparing a meal in a heavy bottomed pot with a very tight fitting lid worked wonders to preserve the moisture and flavor of the foods inside.
Today, Dutch ovens are still used over open fires by the many families who enjoy camping. More often though, dutch ovens are used in kitchens around the world both on the stove and in the oven to bring healthy and scrumptious meals to the table.
Of the many makers of dutch ovens, Le Creuset has proven itself to be one of the best. Originating in France, Le Creuset has worked tirelessly for 90 years to produce the finest in enamel coated cast iron cookware available. Their products are now sold in over sixty different countries.
One of the most famous Le Creuset pieces is their Signature Enameled Cast-Iron Round Dutch Oven (also known as a French Oven). This piece has earned accolades time and again. The first aspect any owner of this dutch oven will notice is the tight-fitting lid. A lid that fits so tightly means that all of the steam and flavor created in the cooking process cannot escape the oven. When this steam is trapped inside, it has no choice but to imbue all its moisture and flavor back into your meal.
