With the signature collection braiser, the cook employs both wet and dry heats to break down tough cuts of meat and tenderize fresh vegetables. The pan's flat base allows for more than braising, including techniques like poaching, searing, roasting, stir-frying and browning. The signature collection braiser also features a low profile that makes it a convenient serving solution for crowded tables and buffet-style settings. From rich risottos and spicy curry to Jasmine rice for stir-fry, every Le creuset braiser is well-suited for preparing a wide range of main courses and side dishes that require careful moisture control.

About Le Creuset
Since 1925, Le Creuset cast iron has been recognized for its strength and durability. Cast individually in sand molds, then hand-inspected by French artisans, each piece represents a rich heritage and continues a tradition of lasting, authentic design.
Le Creuset is focused on inspiring and empowering people everywhere to make joy through cooking. From our original enameled cast iron cookware to stoneware, stainless, silicone and more.
Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron Braiser
The enameled cast iron braiser is uniquely designed for maximum performance, transforming tough cuts of meat and hearty vegetables into tender, flavorful dishes. Food is first seared over high heat, then finished slowly in a flavorful liquid. The wide base of the braiser allows ingredients to be placed in a single layer for proper searing; once liquid is added, the domed lid continuously circulates steam to lock in moisture and flavor.
- Colorful exterior enamel is shock-resistant to prevent chipping and cracking
- Sand-colored interior enamel has a smooth finish that promotes caramelization, prevents sticking and resists stains
- Dome-shaped lid locks in flavor by promoting continuous circulation of heat and moisture
- Wide loop handles provide a safe and comfortable grip
- No seasoning required
Cooking with cast iron
Enameled cast iron is a remarkable and robust material that performs well with modern requirements for food preparation and cooking. Whether you choose to stir-fry, slow-cook a casserole, sear a steak or bake a cake, there is a shape that is suitable. Cast iron performs well for either slow cooking or high-temperature searing.
Cast iron can be used reliably on any heat source, including induction, and with any oven or grill. It has the ability to retain heat efficiently, which allows for use of lower heat settings in stovetop and oven cooking. On the table, a hot covered dish will keep food hot for second servings.
Cast iron can also be used to keep foods cold. A chilled dish becomes an ideal cold food server on a hot summer day. It can also be placed in the freezer for food storage or advanced food preparation.
Le Creuset cast iron cookware can be used on all heat sources including gas, electric solid plate or radiant ring, vitro-ceramic glass, induction, and ovens fired by gas, oil, coal or wood. When using any glass-topped stove, always lift the pan when moving it; never slide it, as this may damage the stovetop or the base of the pan.
Always match the pan’s base size to the stovetop heat zone to maximize efficiency, and to prevent overheating of the pan sides or damage to the handles.
Gas flames must always be confined to the base area, and must never extend around the sidewalls of the pan. Long handles should be positioned safely where they do not hang over the front of the stove or other heat zones.
Cleaning and Care
Always cool a hot pan for a few minutes before washing.
Do not plunge a hot pan into cold water. While Le Creuset’s enamel is designed to be the most durable on the market, thermal shock may still occur, resulting in cracking or loss of enamel.
If there are food residues, fill the pan with warm water and let soak for 15 to 20 minutes before washing. A brush can be useful for removing small food deposits, or for cleaning between the ribs on grills. Do not use scourers or abrasive cleaners on the cooking surface. To avoid damaging the enamel, do not use metallic pads or harsh abrasive cleaning agents.
Light stains or metal marks caused by metal tools can be removed with Le Creuset cookware cleaner. An occasional cleaning with this product will also retain the new appearance of your pans. Le Creuset enameled cast iron is extremely durable but it may be damaged if accidentally dropped or knocked against a hard surface.

Heavy? Yes. But not unmanageable for a woman with average strength. Due to its size, storage is an issue for me. I want it readily available but not in the way. The top of the refrigerator is where I keep it, while my 5 quart Dutch oven (yes, also Le Creuset) lives on my stove. It works.
Clean-up is easy—sometimes a little soak is needed, but it always comes out clean. Another plus is that it doesn’t require any additional care—no seasoning or immediate drying. It is dishwasher-safe, although I always hand-wash cooking pots. Why hand wash? Two reasons: 1. Big items take up too much needed space in the dishwasher and can interfere with the water spray needed for thorough cleaning. 2. I don’t like what the dishwasher detergent can do to some surfaces. It can cause damage to aluminum and other materials. So, i just don’t want to take a chance with my Le Creuset cookware.
Beauty. As with all of the Le Creuset line of cookware, this pot can easily go from the kitchen to the table, or even to the patio or fire pit area. As previously mentioned, it is sturdy and heavy; food will stay hot longer under its hefty lid. It is perfect for taking hot food to a dinner party or potluck meal.
This braiser is a good investment for my family. I can honestly recommend it highly to anyone in the market for such a pot.
