The new range of Lafont Exclusive Cookware has been given the thumbs-up by two-Michelin-starred London restaurant Le Gavroche after a six-month road test.
Each piece of the group's porcelain-enamelled cast-iron cookware, which has been produced in Bayonne, France, for five generations, is individually crafted in an original mould that is used just once.
The new line is coated in a thick scratch-, chip- and acid-resistant porcelain enamel to ensure an even heat distribution that keeps food hot for longer at the table and - unlike many other brands - has no problems with metal utensils, heavy-bladed knives or green scourers.
The 17-strong range features interchangeable wood and metal knobs and is suitable for oven, hob or induction cooking. It is available in seven colour options (country black, blue, burgundy, dark green, apple green, yellow and orange) except for the round and rectangular trivets, which come in country black, and the charcoal-coloured mini and giant reversible griddles.
