DUTCH OVEN / COVERED CASSEROLE. The Covered Casserole is new and had only been used for display.
I fiqured someone else might be able to get better use from this fine Le Creuset product. The Covered Casserole holds 5 quarts and measures approximately 17" long, 9" wide and 7 tall & weighing 14 pounds, the outside color is Aubergine or Purple and the inside color is Cream or Off White. One of the pics shows an upclose view of the rim of the casserole. There is a slight roughness on an area of the Rim (last pic), that appears to have been done during the manufacturing process.I wanted to disclose any and all of the imperfections that I have noticed. All in all an exceptional piece of Le Creuset Cookware.
Suitable for the oven or for browning meat and sweating vegetables on gas, electric, induction, or ceramic ranges, and delightful to behold on the countertop when not in use, the casserole is made of cast-iron and clad inside and out in Le Creuset's famous bright enamel, which won't absorb odors or flavors and readily scrubs clean. As cast-iron is unexcelled for heat distribution and retention, the casserole cooks foods evenly and gently without hot spots.The heavy tight-fitting lid is ovenproof to 450 degrees F. Handles facilitate carrying, and the casserole is dishwasher-safe. Like all of Le Creuset's renowned cookware and bakeware, it's made in France. Please view the pics and ask any and all questions before auctions end.
