Original with cult status: 90 years of Le Creuset
The anniversary casserole and the Signature casserole.
Founded in Fresnoy-le-Grand in northern France in 1925, the company is celebrating its 90th anniversary with special activities revolving around the first cast iron Le Creuset casserole: A success story that began with a passion for cooking and continues to this day. Two Belgian industrialists, a brilliant idea, a lot of pioneering spirit and the joy of solid craftsmanship ensured the perfect recipe: The very first casserole in bright orange revolutionized the world of cooking, bringing pleasure, colour and inspiration to the kitchen. The enthusiasm for the first casserole is alive again in the anniversary year: Le Creuset has relaunched the historical original and is presenting an exclusive anniversary edition of the original casserole from 1925, limited to 1,925 pieces worldwide, in the design of the first hour. The high-quality classic in premium Art Deco packaging is accompanied by an anniversary booklet containing the recipes of the legendary basic sauces that have had a lasting impact on kitchens worldwide since the beginning of the century.
Unmistakable in colour and design
During the nine decades, the company has permanently redefined itself and introduced numerous bestsellers - the innovative colours and shapes regularly set new standards for the kitchen and table. Le Creuset is now the world's leading brand of cast iron cookware and at home in the best kitchens. At the Le Creuset manufactory, an individual sand mould into which molten cast iron is poured is created for each casserole. As in the past, each sand mould is today used only once - thus creating unique pieces, piece by piece. Cooking fans enjoy ever-lasting pleasure using the bright orange casserole. Le Creuset underscores the durability with an exceptional warranty of 30 years.
Cook like the celebrity chefs
In this anniversary year, Le Creuset has won the services of renowned chefs as committed ambassadors of a new culinary culture for joint activities. In addition, several anniversary casseroles from the "Limited Edition" will be auctioned for a good cause on Germany's largest charity auction portal United Charity. The proceeds will go to a children's charity. www.lecreuset.de
