Re: Le Creuset owners, opinion needed
You absolutely can heat the pan dry. I use only LC for all of my cooking. I usually put the empty pan on the stove and turn it on before I do anything else. It doesn't matter if I'm adding water to boil pasta or going to put something into it to sear without oil...you definitely can heat your pan as you wish (but as another poster mentioned not on high heats).
