I have a "collection" of Le Creuset and have happily cooked with it for years. My dear friend borrows mine so I bought her the 7-1/4qt. one for her birthday. Only one comment is necessary from both of us, FABULOUS!

This is my 5th piece of Le Crueset cookware. I use these dutch ovens instead of slow cookers and the results are superior! They are heavy but worth every penny!

This is my 4th Le Creuset French oven I have purchased . I bought a 4 qt. French oven several years ago for my newly wed son and told him that with all the gifts he had received this would be the go to pot for him. Mom was right!! He has become a good cook and as his family has grown he has hinted
that he could use a bigger pot.. Merry Christmas.son.

I love it when chores make me happy. I had to buy a pot rack for my French Oven because I wanted to see it displayed all the time. Oh, it does all the important things well too: browns, sautes, simmers, and stores. It is just so much nicer if I can have a happy smile too.
