Le Creuset's heart-shaped casserole in cherry red combines the performance and durability of enameled cast iron with a fun and joyful shape that's perfect for gift-giving or special occasions. Ideal in the oven, on the stove or at the table, this kitchen classic enhances the cooking process by evenly distributing heat and locking in the optimal amount of moisture. Providing all the wonderful qualities of cast-iron cooking, the round lidded pot is clad in a smooth, glass-like enamel finish that's impervious to acid, alkali, odors and stains. Its non-reactive cooking surface does not require any seasoning and is compatible with all types of heat sources—even solid fuel and open fire.
