In addition to cast iron’s superior heat retention and even heat distribution properties, Essenso’s 3-layer enameled cast iron braiser / casserole / shallow dutch oven doesn’t require seasoning, its impermeable surface can be used with acidic foods and wine, and it’s resistant to cracking and rusting.

Good food release properties when lightly lined with cooking oil and used on medium-low heat. Promotes easier to clean, healthier, residue-free cast-iron cooking. If preheated on low-medium heat, cast iron doesn’t require higher heats that lead to food sticking and burning. A beautiful piece to present on the table straight out of the oven or off the stove.
