Is My Le Creuset Defective?
“The small imperfections are not harmful and your Le Creuset can be used with no problems. These markings are considered a reflection of Le Creuset’s unique crafted nature. It is not uncommon for Le Creuset pieces to have tiny cosmetic flaws since no two pieces are identical”. -Le Creuset
The traditional manufacturing process of sand casting and enamel coating includes variation in colour and surface. This makes each product a unique one, and does not have any impact on performance, durability, and use.
