The cookware is versatile moving from freezer to oven or microwave straight to table top for serving (it can also be used on electric, gas or halogen ranges). plus, its bright red glaze is a stunner. The company, based in Burgundy, France is renowned for making durable cookware. CSL used our casserole to make stews, pot roasts, soups, and braises and the pot helped retain heat longer and faster than conventional cookware.
