Product Description

Amazon.com

Each Le Creuset French oven is individually sand-cast of rugged cast iron, then clad in two coats of hard, colorful enamel. The result? Cookware so durable it's covered by a lifetime warranty, and so attractive you'll proudly bring it to the table. Cast iron retains and distributes heat evenly, making this oval pot with its tight-fitting lid especially good for the slow, stovetop simmering of soups and stews. Because the black phenolic lid knob is oven-safe to 400 degrees, the pot and lid can be used to bake a casserole whose cheesy crust can be browned under the broiler with the lid removed. And, the nonporous enameled pot is handy for marinating meats and storing leftovers in the refrigerator.

This oval French oven (some might call it a Dutch oven) holds 9-1/2 quarts, a generous size for all your simmering, baking, and roasting needs. The exterior comes in a choice of several bright, modern colors, while the interior keeps a more neutral tone to showcase your cuisine. The enamel resists cracking and staining and is best cared for when the contents are stirred with nylon, wood, or silicone utensils. It's also so smooth that food particles tend not to stick, making cleaning by hand or in the dishwasher a snap. Made in France, the Le Creuset French oven is guaranteed to be free of defects for the lifetime of the original owner, whether self-purchased or received as a gift. --Ann Bieri

I love this it is indispensable for entertaining. I make huge batches of stew in this and freeze them in portions. It heats wonderfully. Like any of their stuff it takes a long while for it to heat up but when it does it keeps its heat.
Word of warning don't use metal spoons or it will scrape the bottom. The cleaner that you can buy for it is a must and it brings it up beautifully.
Also it is very heavy especially when full and it does require a bit of strength to move it from oven etc.

this size is great if you entertain a lot or make batches of things. I use this size the most and I have a few of different sizes.

I didn't pay this price, though its not a bad one, I go to an outlet store to the le creuset store, get one slightly imperfect then wait for a sale.

Great dutch oven from Le Creuset. Great quality and solid construction as expected. The oval shape and size make it very functional for many purposes. This oven should last me a lifetime.

I've had one of these for a couple of years now. It's great for making big batches of soup and stew, for braising, and for pot roasts. However, since I mostly use this on the stovetop burner, I've realized that I would have been better served by the 9 qt round version. The oval shape on this one means that the ends are a bit colder than the middle. Also wish I didn't have to buy the aluminum knob (for high temperature oven use) separately; the stock knob is rated for a much lower temperature than the pot.

...Fan-freaking-TASTIC! If you believe that cooking is a skill and that reheating is for pansies, if you like to go old school in the kitchen, and if you want to have your dinner guests drop to their knees and worship you, then the Dutch oven is an essential piece of equipment.

This is how I got here: I decided I wanted to explore braising this year (the concept of slow-cooking food with liquid in a covered pot.) "Yeah...so?" you ask. "That's what a slow-cooker is for, genius."

I won't deny that you have a point. And sure, slow-cookers are good for a lot of things, but when it comes to meat, a good Dutch oven is in a class all by itself. There are two reasons for this: first, most braising recipes call for you to brown the meat on the stove first, which adds both flavor and nice color (let's see your crock-pot do that!) Second, the heavy cast-iron lid of a Dutch oven holds the steam inside much better. This not only enables moisture retention, but also allows the hot vapor to assist with the cooking process. The lighter plastic or glass lids on slow-cookers allow too much steam to escape.

That being said, I bought this model last November and now use it every chance I get. Absolutely zero buyer's remorse, amigos and amigas. The cast iron distributes heat incredibly well (as only cast iron will do), the enamel coating cleans up easily, and everything I've tried in the thing has turned out perfect. Throw in Le Creuset's lifetime warranty, and it's a no-brainer. Sure, it's a bit on the weighty side (as other reviewers have mentioned) but what the hey...we could all use a little more upper body strength, right? So if you don't mind spending this kind of money on a piece of cookware, I highly recommend it. Seriously...you can't go wrong.
