Fashioned from an innovative, durable enameled cast iron that gently distributes heat, this French cookware will suit everyone from the novice to the five-star chef. Whip up pot pies in the mini round or oval cocottes, or opt for the larger dishes. All are attractive enough to move from the stovetop to the table.
