Les Grands Classiques Collection from Revol has inspired many recipes from great chefs. These great classics have been, and still are, the standard for French cuisine. Revol creations are designed for browning, simmering, caramelizing or slow cooking and to diffuse heat to the heart of food, keeping it warm on the table. From casserole dish to ramekin, Revol cookware goes from stove to table with pride, as if to say "I made it myself." Revol porcelain is the cream of the crop of culinary-grade porcelain, containing neither cadmium nor lead. It is fired at an ultra-high temperature (2408 F), making it nonporous and 100 percent hygienic. Revol porcelain will not absorb fats, odors or bacteria. The exceptionally hard material of Revol porcelain is resistant to chipping and thermal shock. The fine art of Revol porcelain is also a science, perfected and practiced as a family-run company in Saint-Uze, France since 1789. Practical, elegant Grands Classiques porcelain goes beautifully from oven to table, and is also freezer, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
