Le Creuset Cast Iron Tagine - 27cm
Colours: Cerise, Flame
Le Creuset offers a beautiful cast iron and stoneware version of the Moroccan tagine, a traditional cooking vessel of North Africa. The Cone shape allows natural steam circulation so that meats remain tender and full of flavour and grains and vegetables cook evenly. The durable cast iron base gives added strength to the design and allows the vessel to retain heat longer.
|The base cooking dish is made from cast iron with a flat bottom. It can be used on any heat source, or on it's own as a baking dish in the oven. The "coolie" style lid is made from earthenware so it still offers the same cooking features as the original. Steam is re-condensed into water droplets on it's cool walls and falls back into the ingredients keeping it moist. Suitable for slow cooking of meat and vegetables with small amounts of liquid.
Serves 4 - 6 portions
Oven, grill, freezer and dishwasher safe.
Suitable for all hobs - Ceramic, halogen, induction, gas, oil/wood
Lifetime guarantee on base
The Satin Black range has a unique, satin interior finish and is especially suited for higher temperatures in cooking. The interior surface is a satin black enamel and is NOT a non-stick surface. It does not need to be seasoned before use and will gradually build up its owns 'patina' which will cover the whole cooking surface giving enhanced release of foods and greatly reduced amounts of pre-greasing or oiling.
USE ONLY MEDIUM AND LOW HEAT SETTINGS, allowing the pan to heat through gradually and evenly. Once the pan or grill is hot a lower temperature will often maintain the correct level of heat.
DO NOT PRE-HEAT ON HIGH, then lower the heat to medium or low. Cast iron is a very efficient material, retaining heat well. If overheated, it will retain considerable heat for a long period of time and this form of miss-use may contribute to sticking and poor cooking results.
ALWAYS COOL ANY PAN FOR A FEW MINUTES before washing. When possible rinse the pan in hot water and wipe over the surface with a damp cloth. This may be possible if the pan is used for regular cooking of foods where the food residues are minimal. For more thorough washing use hot soapy water, then rinse and dry thoroughly.
