An ultimate design classic once celebrated on a Finnish postage stamp. The gorgeous Sarpaneva Casserole pot for Iittala. Combining design usability with a traditional cast iron pot, Timo Sarpaneva’s inspiration came from his blacksmith grandfather. Timeless and ingenious design, as functional in the kitchen as appealing on the dining table.
A classic casserole pot, it has a detachable wooden handle which allows you to lift and move both the pot and its lid. 3 Liters. Cast iron, enameled inside, wooden handle. Cast iron cookware may also be coated with enamel. Enamel protects the surface against rust and strengthens it.
In enamelled products food can be prepared in the oven or on the stove with good results every time. Food cooks evenly and browns well. The enamelled surface prevents food flavors from sticking to the pot, so you can use the same pot for cooking fish as well as meat. Use wooden or plastic kitchen utensils. Sharp objects and scouring agents and sponges can damage the enamel. Always wash enamelled cast iron products by hand, with our without washing liquid. Occasionally, it is recommended to treat the enamelled surface with cooking oil.
