This is a wonderful all purpose skillet or cooker. It is so nice looking that it has a permanent place out on my stove. I keep looking up recipes so I can use it. I would recommend it to anyone.

Just received 40min. ago. sent the wrong color. No one contacted me letting me know if the color I requested wasn't available. The packaging was terrible. It was ship in way to big of box two items inside was free to move around destroying the boxes they was in lucky nothing was broken. This was my second order from Chef's. The first order I was satisfied. This one not so satisfied.

Le Creuset is wonderful product. I have 2 different size dutch ovens and always wanted a braiser. It cooks wonderfully, is very strong and cleans very well. Makes a great serving platform as well. I might have to order a smaller one as well. This will last a lifetime!
