CAREFULLY HAND-CRAFTED IN FRANCE FOR OVER 150 YEARS
Founded in 1850, and located in Marcigny, a small town in the province of Burgundy, France, Emile Henry has established a worldwide reputation for manufacturing the finest quality ceramic ovenware, and gourmet cooking products, and bakeware products. Still owned and operated by the Henry family, the company still manufactures their cooking products from Burgundy clay using their proprietary high resistance state-of-the-art oven ceramic manufacturing process.
Burgundy clay evenly and slowly diffuses heat to the very center of the cooking dish. Food is cooked evenly, which brings out the flavors and aromas. Burgundy clay has superior heat retention properties which keep food hot and more flavorsome when resting on the dining table or on a kitchen sideboard.
All Emile Henry products are direct freezer-to-oven. They exhibit extraordinary thermal shock properties. They go under the broiler and in the microwave.
Emile Henry products do not chip or crack easily. One can cut directly on the surface without scratching or damaging the product.
The surfaces do not trap and hold baked-on or burnt food. Cleaning is remarkably easy. All Emile Henry products can go in the dishwasher.
There is no lead or cadmium in our products, all of the glazes meet California Prop 65, and all of the products are 100% food safe. Offered in a large variety of colors, the glazes will not craze, discolor or fade over time.
All Emile Henry products carry a limited household ten (10) year warranty against breakage due to defective workmanship.
