Since 1925, Le Creuset has designed and manufactured Enameled Cast Iron cookware at their foundry in Fresnoy-Le-Grand, Northern France. It began by hand-casting molten cast iron in sand molds, still the most delicate stage of the production process. After casting, each piece of cookware is polished, sanded by hand, and scrutinized for imperfections. Once declared suitable for enameling, the items are sprayed with two separate coats of enamel and fired at a temperature of 1472F. The enamel then becomes extremely hard and durable, making it almost completely resistant to damage during normal use. Since much of the finishing is done by hand, each piece of Enameled Cast Iron cookware is completely unique.
