Start cooking on the gas then finish in the oven, under the grill or in the microwave. The Emile Henry casserole is suitable for all types of modern cooking, change from one to another using just one pot.
Ceramic is a natural material made from clay. Cooking in ceramic remains the best way to preserve the flavours and nuritional qualities in the food, and to develop the aromas. What’s more, the small bumps on the underside of the lid favour the condensation process: the vapour falls back onto the food, which remains full of flavour. The Emile Henry casserole contributes to a healthy, balanced diet.
The ceramic casserole is designed for everyday use: you can serve directly at the table and cut inside thanks to its extremely resistant glaze. It can also be taken from the freezer and put directly on the gas or in the oven. It also slips easily into the dishwasher.
