Scouted readers love cast iron skillets and quality kitchenware that looks great — marrying those two is Le Creuset’s Signature Skillet. It’s not only striking in appearance (and highly customizable in that sense) but also packs a functional punch. Of course, the Signature will spread heat evenly like any cast iron worth its weight in cast iron, giving you the ability to better slow-cook, roast, sear, stir-fry (and go between stove and oven as you please). But an interior enamel finish in matte black is designed to handle the high heat you’ll burn beneath it and develop the iconic cast-iron patina without the need to season and maintain it.
The glass-like finish is stain-resistant and prevents sticking, making things a bit easier in that sense, too. And the color options on the Signature are really where you can customize how this workhorse will accent your kitchen.
There are 19 style possibilities (from Cerise to Marseille) and six of them are in matte, like the Matte Mineral Blue — every single one is shock-resistant to prevent chipping or cracking. The Signature comes in several sizes, from about six inches in diameter to a foot, and ranges from $120 to $200. If you want to take your cast iron cooking to a whole new level and make things easier for yourself, Le Creuset’s Signature Skillet can help you get there your way.
