Le Creuset combines four of its most well-used cast-iron cookware items in this excellent gift set. The collection consists of a 5-1/2-quart round lidded French oven; a 2-1/4-quart lidded saucier; a small 8-by-10-inch roaster; and a 10-inch square skillet grill with raised ridges, helper handle, and two pour spouts. Each heavy cast-iron piece heats evenly and comes coated with hard porcelain enamel for superior performance, and is attractive and durable enough to go straight from the stovetop or oven to the table. You'll find the saucier ideal for whisking sauces and heating soup; the French oven perfect for casseroles and stews; the skillet an indoor barbecue substitute for getting those char stripes on hamburgers; and the roaster perfect for everything from baked potatoes to brownies.
Le Creuset is known for suffusing the exterior of its products with bright, modern colors, while keeping a more neutral, sand-colored tone on the interior to showcase the cuisine (satin black interior on square skillet grill). The enamel resists cracking, chipping, 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. The French oven and saucepan come with secure-fitting lids that help trap heat, moisture, and nutrients--plus offer phenolic knobs that can withstand temperatures up to 350 degrees F. Made in France, Le Creuset premium cookware brings joie de vivre to any kitchen it graces and is covered by a lifetime warranty, whether you bought the item for yourself or received it as a gift. --Ann Bieri
