Enamelled cast iron

Enamelled cast iron cookware is cast iron with an enamel glaze applied to the surface which prevents rusting and eliminates the need to season the cast iron. It also allows for easier cleaning as it creates a non-porous, smooth surface which also enables easier cleaning. As an added bonus, the exterior of enamelled cast iron cookware comes in a variety of rainbow colours to suit any kitchen.

Finding the right enamel cookware for your needs

While a cast iron pot is a classic for many home cooks and professional chefs, the versatility and no-fuss nature of enamel cookware is making it an increasingly popular choice in the kitchen. An enamel pot can do everything a cast iron pot can but is easier to care for and clean. From braising and searing to roasting, boiling and simmering, enamelware is a one-pot wonder that doesn't need seasoning and can be placed in the dishwasher.

Enamelled Cast Iron Cookware explained

Cast iron enamelware is cast iron cookware that has had a porcelain enamel coating applied to it during the manufacturing process. This coating protects it and prevents it from rust as well as makes it easy to clean and able to withstand high temperatures. While raw cast iron is black, the cadmium pigments used in enamel cast iron can produce rich, vibrant colours. It also does not require seasoning and works with any heat source apart from campfires, including induction cooktops and the oven.

Regular vs. enamelled cast iron - what's the difference?

Regular or raw cast iron cookware retains its natural look and requires seasoning after each use to build up a non-stick surface. It's incredibly durable, even in fire, and is a favourite for many cooks who love traditional cookware. Cast iron is reactive to acidic foods and is susceptible to rust if not cared for properly.

Enamelled cast iron has had a porcelain glaze applied to it which makes it easier to maintain. It's dishwasher-safe, non-reactive to acidic foods, non-stick and does not need to be seasoned making it perfect for those who love the benefits of cast iron without the work required to keep it in pristine condition.

Maintaining, cleaning and caring for enamel cookware

Enamel cast iron is much easier to maintain than cast iron as you don't need to season it after each use. Thanks to the enamel coating, you can just pop your enamel cookware in the dishwasher for a quick clean. As these are also non-stick pans and pots, food is much less likely to get stuck on the surface and they can be wiped out with detergent and a cloth if preferred. Some cookware, such as our Le Creuset range, is also shock-resistant to protect against chips and cracks.
