This unique low walled cast iron casserole dish is an ultra-durable classic 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 looking to add real value for money to their cookware range, and the cast iron construction of this low casserole dish allows it to withstand direct heat, whilst also redistributing that same heat throughout the cooking surface, meaning you have the perfect device 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 allows for an easy release of foods from the pot to the plate, making it a great cookpot for dinner parties, as you can place it in the centre of the table and have everyone serve themselves the delicious food you have created.
This low set 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 dish allows it to be placed in ovens up to 260°c, without compromising its quality.
The enamel coating on the cast iron casserole dish also makes it resistant to acidic and alkaline foods, which allows you to marinade your foods in the dish and store it in the fridge before cooking.
The casserole pot features two easy grip handles either side of the pot that delivers a comfortable and quick 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, which enables your flavours to strengthen over time, therefore providing you 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 that makes the taking of the lid on and off the pot nice and straightforward, but just like the handles, becomes hot if used in the oven, so again please remove with the appropriate protection.
This shallow casserole dish measures 28cm in diameter, and the 2.5L volume capacity is spread out over a longer surface thanks to the shallow nature of the pot, which ultimately makes this the best pot for browning meats and vegetables, as well as simmering risottos, stir frys, and most impressively baking sweet or savoury pies.
The casserole dish comes in a classic grey colour, and when coupled with the light 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 to be cleaned by hand wash only, and needs to be washed in hot soapy water before the first use, and then after every subsequent use once the pan has cooled down.
