Vibrant colors, with 3 layers of enamel coating, are expertly chosen by RJ Legend designer to bring the single serving individual small dishes to be perfectly arranged for your family at the dining table. Oven safe to up to 500 °F and can be used on gas, electric, ceramic and induction cook tops. Not recommended for microwave ovens. Perfect for single serving goodies like French Onion Soup and cobbler! This cocotte with extra-heavy lid, made with cast iron, is known to be great for retaining heat and sealing moisture for flavorful results within the pot more than ceramic or any other materials. The 3 layers of enamel coating creates an anti-rust surface and makes the cocotte more non-stick than regular cast irons, making them much more durable and easier to clean! These cocottes have enameled coating, which is not scratch proof, therefore it is recommended to use wooden, silicon, or nylon utensils with this cocotte and although dishwasher safe, it is recommended to hand wash with soapy water.
