So I plunked down the $230 (a seemingly insane amount of money for a pot, but I figured I was buying quality, and that it would last a lifetime), and when it arrived I started the bread recipe.
But wait. The instruction manual -- while saying that the pot is heat-rated for temperatures in excess of 500 degrees -- stated the maximum temperature for the pot's black phenolic lid knob was only 375 degrees. (I later found out that "phenolic" is just a classy name for PLASTIC.) So -- how were all these people baking their Bittman bread with their Le Creuset pots? I Googled "Bittman + Le Creuset" and found a litany of horror stories about pot knobs melting and even exploding in the oven because people didn't read the fine print in the owner's manual. Of course, my Google search also brought me to THIS page, where I found this stainless steel replacement knob.
The knob itself is perfect. It looks even better than the original plastic (excuse me -- PHENOLIC) knob. And it's nice that Le Creuset put its logo on top. What's not nice is that the hardware it comes with doesn't work -- the screw is too long, and the knob didn't tighten properly. No worries ... I just used the original screw from the plastic (excuse me again -- PHENOLIC) knob. Success!
I have three main gripes with Le Creuset, however.Read more ›
Le Creuset should hire 'Madge" for quality control as the screw included in the package was at least 1/4" too long. And no one likes floppy knobs.
3 Stars for the oversight and wasted gas. A shorter screw would have pushed it to a 5.
If you prefer the stainless knob, you can buy that, but be aware that it won't be cool to the touch like the phenolic one.
PS Google "no knead bread" - or go to the New York Times webpage and look up the article, recipe, and video by Mark Bittman - it really is as easy (and delicious!) as they say it is!
This knob arrived in a blister pack with a screw, but to my surprise, the screw was too long! When I went to attach the knob onto the lid of my 7.25-quart round dutch oven, I twisted the screw into the steel knob as far as it would go, but the head of the screw still didn't tighten on the lid. This left the knob quite wobbly. I don't know if there is something funny about that particular steel knob (e.g., the screw hole wasn't drilled deep enough), about my pot (e.g., the lid is thinner than it should be), or about that particular screw.
In the end, the screw that had attached the old phenolic knob was a bit shorter and worked perfectly, so I just used that one instead, rather than bothering to complain, return, or exchange. "All's well that ends well," as they say, but considering that Le Creuset is high-end cookware - and the price reflects it! - I expect their accessories to be of the same high quality. The screw should have been a perfect fit... and if it had been, I wouldn't have hesitated to give 5 stars.
