A beloved of Napoleon Bonaparte, Julia Child, and home cooks the world over, the trusted pressure cooker has come a long way. Before Le Creuset brought the cocotte into common kitchen usage, the word was used to describe alternately a rooster, or a person who accepted payment for sex. Cocotte, French for prostitute and for a crowing species of poultry with a comb and wattle, is now almost entirely a family-friendly word, albeit loaded with Pavlovian responses tied to the sounds and smells of browning and braising meat in a Dutch oven.
For serious cooks, Le Creuset or Staub cocottes, vividly enamelled, tightly lidded cast iron saucepans have reached peak cult status; they are unarguably objects of high design and high desire. Cocottes move fluently from stovetop, where meats and vegetables brown beautifully and evenly, into the oven where tough cuts become tender, and the complex array of browned flavours from their Maillard reactions are allowed to develop further, infusing the braising liquid, to create richly flavoured sauces, gravies, and stews.
This is because immensely durable cast iron has two key properties that, in combination, are unmatched by most other cooking materials — the ability to heat to very high temperatures helpful for browning , and the ability to retain heat well ideal for braising, baking, roasting, and so on.
Which is perhaps why the histories of lidded iron saucepans in our kitchens can be traced to the Iron Age, the Han Dynasty, and the Industrial Revolution. Human beings have been using bare cast iron since the beginning of the Iron Age. In China, archaeological evidence suggests it was used in weaponry, pagodas, ploughshares and artefacts as far back as 6th century BCE — cookware, in particular, came around during the Han Dynasty, around 2nd century BCE. Most of the Western world only discovered the wonders of cast iron as cookware as recently as years ago, most likely through Chinese technology transmitted via the Silk Route.
The first one was designed by an enterprising Englishman named Abraham Darby the Elder whose immediate descendants played key roles in the Industrial Revolution. In , Darby visited Holland and noticed how the Dutch used sand rather than loam or clay to cast brass vessels.
