Le Creuset Cast Iron Oval Doufeu is a classic piece that dates back to 1934. The French word "doufeu" means "gentle fire" – the pot was given this name because it’s suited to low heat cooking. Its cast iron construction means it distributes heat evenly. It locks in moisture too – for succulent dishes, simmered to perfection. Small dips sit on the inside of the lid, causing the pot to ‘cry’ condensation liquid down into your food. To get this effect, just place ice cubes in the top of the lid cavity.

The Cocotte Doufeu, with its 32 cm , has a capacity of 7.2 liters , perfect for the whole family!

How the Doufeu cocotte works

The curious and The striking design of the lid of the Doufeu cocotte ensures that slow-cooked foods retain all their flavor and aroma. The operation is as follows:

  1. put ice on the lid Of the pot;
  2. turn on the heat to cook normally, over low heat ;
  3. when the stew begins to boil, the steam rising from the food condenses on the inside of the lid thanks to the fact that it is cold because of the ice and
  4. continuously drips on the stew = a juicy food with all its flavor.
  5. If cooking is very long, the ice must be replaced when it is completely melted.

In addition to cooking in this way, the Doufeu cocotte is also perfect for preparing your stews like a normal casserole , without ice. You can use it daily to prepare your recipes both on the stove and in the oven and, since it is so beautiful, serve them directly on the table. You will have two cocottes in one piece!
