Price: $299.95

The Heritage Collection features signature specialty items in the color Flame that are synonymous with French cooking and with Le Creuset. Each item in the Heritage Collection comes with a bonus cookbook. Originally introduced in 1934 by Le Creuset (Cousances), the doufeu is a cooking vessel featuring a recessed lid designed to hold ice rather than embers. As moisture begins to evaporate inside the cooking vessel during the slow cooking process, the cool ice-filled lid causes this moisture to condense. Specially designed dimples on the flat interior of the lid direct moisture back down onto the food in liquid form. This self-basting effect minimizes the need to add additional water and ensures that food remains moist, nutrients are not lost, and flavors intensify. And even when the ice in the lid melts the self-basting process continues to function - as long as water in the lid remains below the boiling point it is cooler than evaporating moisture inside the doufeu and therefore ensures that condensation continues. In the mid 1920s, Octave Aubecq, Le Creuset co-founder and enameling specialist, sought to differentiate the company by creating an enamel that would mirror the color of molten cast iron in a crucible. His effort resulted in the creation of the color orange, called Flame in the US (Volcanique en Francais). As the original enamel color of Le Creuset cookware, Flame was an instant hit and established Le Creusets position in the industry as the leader in colored cookware. Today Flame is Le Creusets best-selling cast iron color in European markets such as France and the UK, and it is considered to be synonymous with the name Le Creuset.

I have had a chance to use the oval 7 qt doufeu to make Coq Au Vin. It is a remarkable dutch oven. It works like a charm and cleanup was a breeze. Be advised this is a heavy heavy dutch oven. If you think the weight might be to much buy an All-Clad Stainless.
