When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Cooking Enthusiast
I cook every day for my family and increasingly I have slowly found myself replacing my older pots with Le Creuset. They provide excellent and consistent distribution of heat when used on the stove-top; they are equally proficient when used in the oven for slowly cooking stews and casseroles.
I have both large casseroles and small pots, but this "soup pot" provides a perfect size and accessibility for sauces that need an even cooking surface, combined with periods of enclosed cooking and marinating. You can easily cook enough sauce for four people and then add pasta to dish that is perfectly elegant for serving at table. So I know I will use this dish three to four times a week for the rest of my life.
I recieved one of these pots as a wedding gift, and I love it! It's incredibly durable, it's spacious, and it's also incredibly beautiful (I recieved a red one). These pieces are worth the money, think of it as an investment, and I'm going to invest in one of the dutch ovens next.
