Our Favorite Things… Chasseur Cookware

We don’t carry a lot of cookware in the store, so I wanted to be sure we had a product on our shelves that was versatile and a good option for healthy cooking… cast-iron definitely fits the bill.

I absolutely love this Chasseur enameled cast-iron cookware – it’s not only beautiful but so practical!

Enameled cast-iron is ideal for grilling, simmering, roasting or simply for re-heating, thanks to its impeccable design and quality:

  • Distributes heat evenly, for slow cooking and saving energy
  • Resistant to high temperatures
  • Absorbs and retains heat to keep food hot
  • Durable and hard-wearing
  • It’s truly a work-horse in the kitchen that you’ll reach for time and again for soups, stews, braised meats… the list goes on and on!
