    Cherry Red Heritage Doufeu Pot from Le Creuset - 4 1/2 Quart Round

    This Le Creuset Heritage Doufeu Pot brings braising to the highest levels. Braising requires low heat, moisture, and time to break down the connective tissues in tough proteins. Otherwise unpalatable foods can be turned into a mouth-watering, tender delights using braising methods. This cast iron doufeu pot from Le Creuset can elevate your time-honored braised dishes like chicken cacciatore, coq au vin, sauerbraten, and beef bourguingnon, and also help you reach into new culinary realms. This Le Creuset Doufeu can be used for barbeque-braising which combines grilling meats directly over the flames, then transferring into the pot to simmer on the grill-top for a few hours, and finishing again on the grill to crisp the exterior.

    Doufeu means "gentle fire" from the French word combination "doux" and "feu." This gorgeous doufeu cooking vessel has a concave lid that is to be filled with ice to create condensation during the cooking process. On the underside of the doufeu lid are dimples that distribute liquids from condensation evenly across the entire top, not just down the sides. The doufeu pot was introduced in 1935 at Le Crueset, and has been brought back for the 75th anniversary. Most doufeu recipes indicate adding as little as a cup of liquid for every 2-3 pounds of protein and/or vegetable cooked. This liquid amount for the doufeu pot is much less than for standard braising pots. The doufeu pot from Le Creuset takes advantage of the scientific principle known as reflux where heat applied to the liquid in the pot evaporates and creates a vapor. That vapor rises to meet the colder, iced underside of the flat, interior pot lid, then the liquids reform and drop back into the pot. The ice, the flat interior lid shape, and the dimples increase the reflux processes in this Le Creuset doufeu pot.
