Emile Henry was founded in 1850 in a small town in the province of Burgundy, France and is reputable for manufacturing the finest quality ceramic ovenware, gourmet cooking products, and bakeware products. The company is still owned and operated by the Henry family and all of the company's products are made from Burgundy clay using their proprietary Ceradon® manufacturing process.
Burgundy, France is probably best-known for its world famous wines that grow in mineral-rich limestone soil. These soils and clay go into the clay cookware-drafting formulas that are the basis for all Emile Henry ceramic cookware. Burgundy clay evenly and slowly diffuses cooking heat to the very center of the cooking dish for a well-evenly cooked outcome. The clay also holds heat to keep food hot and more flavorful after removing it from its heat source.
Emile Henry products are well-respected among cooks and chefs for their right dimensions, easy-to-clean properties, dishwasher safe products and are all 100% food safe. Their cookware products include Emile Henry baking dishes, cake stands, emile Henry loaf pans, casserole dishes, emile Henry stew pots, handcrafted emile Henry pie dishes, trivets, emile Henry tagines and emile Henry braziers. All Emile Henry products carry a limited household ten year warranty against breakage due to defective workmanship.
