This traditional 22cm cast iron casserole dish is a hardwearing and ultra-durable kitchen appliance that is the perfect cookpot to be used when braising, simmering, roasting, broiling, and baking a wide variety of meals in your kitchen.
Cast iron kitchen pots and pans have long been favoured by those home cooks who want to add real value for money to their cookware range, and the cast iron construction of this casserole dish allows it to withstand direct heat, whilst also redistributing that heat throughout the cooking surface, meaning you get the perfect vessel to create delicious meals, as well as a cookpot that will last a lifetime if properly looked after.
This cast iron casserole dish features an enamel coating that ensures an easy release of foods from the pot to the plate, making it the perfect cookpot to place in the centre of the table at dinner parties and have everyone serve themselves the delicious food you have created.
This cast iron casserole dish is like all Blackmoor pots and pans in the fact that it is suitable to be used on all hob types, such as gas, electric, and induction hobs, as well as on hot plates, and the hardwearing nature of the pan allows it to be placed in ovens up to 260°c, without compromising its quality. The enamel coating on the cast iron casserole pot also makes it resistant to acidic and alkaline foods, which enables you to marinade your foods in the dish and store it in the fridge before cooking.
The casserole dish features two easy grip handles either side of the pot that provides an easy way to take the pan in and out of the oven. Please note that the handles will become very hot when used in the oven, so when removing the dish always use heat resistant oven gloves to protect yourself.
The casserole dish also comes complete with a lid that will ensure the heat stays inside the pot when cooking, allowing your flavours to heighten over time, and delivering the best cookpot to create dishes that require cooking over a low heat for a long duration. The lid itself has a stainless steel knob on the top that makes taking the lid on and off the pot nice and straightforward, but like the handles, will become hot if used in the oven, so again please remove with the appropriate protection.
This casserole dish measures 22cm in diameter, has a 2.5L volume capacity, comes in a striking red grey colour, and when coupled with the demure cream coloured inner enamel surface, it is a cookpot that will be suitable to be used in any style of kitchen, whether it be modern or traditional, without looking out of place.
When it comes to the maintenance of the casserole pot it is hand wash only, and needs to be cleaned in hot soapy water before the first use, and then after every subsequent use once the pan has cooled down.
