List of products by brand Le Creuset
In 1925 two Belgian industrialists met at the Brussels Fair: one specialist in enamelling and the other expert in fusion. Together they came up with a way to glaze the cast iron and brought color to the kitchen.
Together, the founders of Le Creuset ushered in a new era in the cookware industry.
After their first meeting, Armand Desaegher and Octave Aubecq decided to collaborate and defined the basic production process of the vitrified cast iron cocotte that we still use today. In 1925 they created a working prototype and thus Le Creuset was born.
The founders then opened a foundry in the village of Fresnoy-le-Grand, about two hours north of Paris. Our factory is located at a crossroads of communication routes, making it easier to procure the iron, coal and sand needed for production.
Inspired by the vivid orange color of the cast iron cast inside the molds, the first vitrified shade of Desaegher and Aubecq (Volcanic Orange) has become our signature.
