Cuisinart CI670-30CR Cast Iron
When it comes to cooking whole pot meals and casseroles, you will need the exceptional heat retention of a cast iron casserole. And if you are still looking for the best, Cuisinart has something for you. The brand has put forth one of its bestselling covered casseroles yet – the Chef’s Classic. This may look like any other large pot with a cover and a pair of handles. But its design will blow you away.
Cuisinart retains the exceptional properties of cast iron in the production of the Chef’s Classic. This guarantees faster cooking times and more equal distribution of heat throughout the pot. What the company did, however, was to improve the interior cooking surface. Instead of the usual metallic surface of ordinary cast iron, Cuisinart deemed it necessary to apply a slick surface.
Hence, the Chef’s Classic now boasts of a porcelain enamel cooking surface. There are many reasons why such a technology is much better than conventional casserole designs. First off, porcelain provides a slicker non-stick surface so there is no need to season the cast iron to achieve a similar effect. This means there are no instances where you will be scraping the bottom of the dish. The same porcelain surface will also not impart any nasty flavor or odor into your meals. What you will get is the goodness of every dish that you prepare for your family.
The exterior of the Chef’s Classic also boasts of porcelain enamel coating. This improves the heat retention and distribution characteristics of the pot. It also allows Cuisinart to fabricate Chef’s Classics in various colors. One can serve these dishes straight from the oven and into the dining table. There is no need to transfer the food into a serving dish or platter. The Chef’s Classic looks stunning enough to merit a place on the dining table.
It works well with different cooking appliances, too. You can use the Chef’s Classic on an induction stovetop, a convection oven, a broiler, or a standard stovetop. It relies on the amazing heat retention and distribution properties of cast iron to cook your food the professional way.
Cuisinart is doing a great job creating remarkable kitchenware. The Chef’s Classic may have the looks of an ordinary casserole, but its design is something any home cook can get excited about. The simple yet lovely design makes it a good aesthetic addition to a modern kitchen.
