Cousances - Enameled Cast Iron Cookware

I love cooking with cast iron. It holds heat like a ninja so food cooks evenly without those pesky overdone/underdone spots. Cast iron can go from the stove to the oven with finesse, making it perfect for searing steaks/fish on the stove, then heating them through in the oven. Stews cook perfectly. Roasts are delicious. Clean up is easy, and best of all, it is inexpensive.

I recently got a Cousances enameled cast iron pot. All the goodness, with a beautiful non-stick coating.

You might have seen (and drooled over) the brightly colored Le Creuset enameled cast iron cookware.

It is known worldwide as the highest quality enameled cast iron, but before there was Le Creuset, there was Cousances. Cousances was the original leader of enameled cast iron, mainly because the bottom isn't enameled but sealed (and some other fancy reasons.) Le Creuset has acquired Cousances, but you can still find original pieces.

I made this White Bean Soup last night, and it is simmering on my stove right now.

  5. My Dad,age 85,lives alone and spends the winter in a rented trailer in Florida.Last nite,on the phone,he was extoling the virtues of a small skillet he uses most days. From his description I thought it might be Crueset but when he read the bottom to me it it said Cousances. The amazing thing is for 58 years my Mom did all the cooking and now he's doing a great job and eating well! And teaching me a thing or two.

  6. I purchased 2 new-in-the-box Cousances items at an auction- a small skillet and a saucepan. They were a "bonus", included in a large, also new-in-box set of Le Creuset I got for only $90!!! It was in rural MN- no one seemed to know what it was (they actually said "Eww! Orange.") except a woman bidding against me who didn't want it too badly. I'm very excited about all the items and anxious to see how they do.

  7. The best investment you make is choosing the best cookware. There are many types of cooking utensils and choose the right one can be difficult. If you cook repeatedly that he wants a wide range of cooking utensils. There are many types of cookware available in the market.
