The Le Creuset story
We are all familiar with the brand, but what’s the story behind Le Creuset?
Le Creuset began in 1925 with two French specialists in their field, a master enameller, and a master caster – who worked together to perfect enamelling cast iron and brought colour to the kitchen.
Le Creuset is known for its striking colour selection, but did you know that their iconic ‘Volcanic’ shade was inspired by the fiery orange colour of molten cast iron inside the foundry moulds, and was the brand’s first enamel colour? Since then a rainbow of gorgeous shades has been introduced to their range.
Even with today’s wide choice of cooking materials, cast iron, still forged and crafted by hand by Le Creuset remains a popular cooking choice because of its versatility, good looks and ability to retain and spread heat evenly. Despite modern innovations in mass production, Le Creuset has continued to use hand-crafted techniques and the original process of forging and casting in the manufacturing of their cookware, so you know when you invest in Le Creuset you are investing in quality.
In 1995, Le Creuset began exploring new product categories including stainless steel, stoneware, silicone, enamelled steel, and more – offering more ways to enjoy Le Creuset’s signature style and quality in the kitchen
