Compliments to the chef.

Just because Emile Henry’s been sourcing the very same Burgundy for several hundred years doesn’t mean their cookware’s stuck in the 1800’s. As a matter of fact, this collection’s got more than heirloom good-looks. It also has modern features aplenty. First off, check out those head-turning curves (like something you might find at a French flea market) then notice that matte black coating. It’s 100% natural, nonstick, and created to get searingly hot in less than a minute. The domed lid comes in handy when you’ve got a whole chicken to roast and that knob on the lid is cute, yeah, but it also does double duty as a spoon rest when you’re making sauces and stews. And when the feasting is through, the so-slick coating means food will wash right off. Done and done.
