Le Creuset Sizes by Letter

A friend of mine asked me the Le Creuset sizes by letter. I must admit that I didn’t know so I looked it up for her. It turns out this information was not readily available in a quick format.

At the end of this post, you will know what the markings at the bottom of your Le Creuset Dutch oven and Braiser mean and what size they relate too.

You will have noted that there are markings on the bottom of Le Creuset Dutch ovens and cookware. To clarify, they are not any kind of production markings that you may see on Lodge cast iron cookware.

The Le Creuset markings refer specifically to the size of the Dutch oven, Braiser, Skillet or pan. They are the diameter of the longest dimension, not including the handle. This is based in centimeters.

In most the Le Creuset range, they have a number molded in them. However, on some Le Creuset, their sizes are sometimes signified by a letter. However, this is limited to round Dutch ovens and oval ovens. The remainder are signified by size.

One thing that confuses many people is the Le Creuset lettering and numbering. It is reasonable to believe that if you have two items such as Dutch ovens with the same Le Creuset letters, the lids should be interchangeable.

This is not the case, often you will find that the lids do not fit. This is because the ranges have changed over the years and minor changes mean that the lids will not necessarily fit.

If you are looking for a Le Creuset replacement lid, ideally you will need to try it to make sure it fits tightly. Obviously in this case, it is better to take your item along with you, but if you are buying online, ensure there is a return policy.

I share this with you, hopefully saving you some time in the process. Let’s look at the Le Creuset sizes by letter…
