Le Creuset Cast Iron Tagine – Volcanic
Our Le Creuset Cast Iron Tagine is designed for slow cooking meat and vegetables with a small amount of liquid.
The cast iron base evenly distributes heat and can be used on any heat source, or on its own as a baking dish in the oven. The Le Creuset Cast Iron cookware works efficiently at low to medium cooking temperatures and retains heat effectively, ensuring food stays warm for longer.
The Stoneware ‘Coolie’ style lid offers the same cooking properties as the earthenware original. Steam is re-condensed into water droplets on its cool walls which falls back into the ingredients keeping them succulent and moist.
The Tagine is available in a range of vibrant colours to suit any kitchen or style.
- Even heat distribution with superior heat retention gives perfect cooking results and will keep dishes warmer for longer at the table
- Durable, non-reactive sand-coloured interior enamel is easy to clean, resists chipping and staining and won’t absorb odours or flavours
- Colourful, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and is easy to clean

Le Creuset History
Le Creuset began producing its first porcelain enamelled cast iron pots in 1925 from its foundry in Fresnoy le Grand, France. It is from this base that Le Creuset continues to produce its world famous cast iron pots.
While Le Creuset has expanded the types of products it offers and has taken advantage of many technological advances since its beginnings in 1925, some things have not changed in the manufacture of Le Creuset’s cast iron.
Le Creuset has continued to use the hand-crafted techniques and the original process of forging and casting in the manufacturing of its cookware. This attention to its heritage is also characteristic of the design. The Cocotte, or French Oven, was one of the first cast iron items produced by Le Creuset and is still the most popular item sold in a range of bright retro colours, with Volcanic (orange) the company’s trademark.
Le Creuset is now sold in more than 60 countries around the world including the US, UK, Japan and Australia.
