Le Creuset started in the early twentieth century as a company that combined the best in casting and enameling to create versatile cast iron and porcelain enamel glaze cookware. The traditional cast iron cookware created by Le Creuset was made in France and perfected over the years. By the mid twentieth century, Le Creuset expanded to include grill models and fondue sets to improve the quality and quantity of cookware types. Since this early expansion, Le Creuset has continued to grow into an international brand that carries everything from stainless steel, stoneware, silicone, enamel, steel and hard-anodized aluminum. The company has also embraced cuisine from across the world by creating high-quality cast iron woks, karahi dishes, sukiyaki pans, risotto pots, and tagines.
