Each piece from our extensive range of high-quality enameled cast iron cookware is designed for ease and versatility of use, fitting in with all styles of cooking, all types of cooking appliances and any style of kitchen or dining decor. Please read this section before using your cookware for the first time. The information it contains will help you achieve the best possible cooking results.

Enameled cast iron is a remarkable and robust material that performs well with modern requirements for food preparation and cooking. Whether you choose to stir-fry, slow-cook a casserole, sear a steak or bake a cake, there is a shape that is suitable. Cast iron performs well for either slow cooking or high-temperature searing.

Cast iron can be used reliably on any heat source, including induction, and with any oven or grill. It has the ability to retain heat efficiently, which allows for use of lower heat settings in stovetop and oven cooking. On the table, a hot covered dish will keep food hot for second servings.

Cast iron can also be used to keep foods cold. A chilled dish becomes an ideal cold food server on a hot summer day. It can also be placed in the freezer for food storage or advanced food preparation

High heat temperatures should only be used for boiling water for vegetables or pasta, or for reducing the consistency of stocks or sauces. High heats should never be used to preheat a pan before lowering the heat for cooking. Cast iron retains heat so efficiently that overheating will cause food to burn or stick.

The vitreous enamel surface is impermeable and therefore ideal for raw or cooked food storage, and for marinating with acidic ingredients such as wine.

My original Le Creuset has the smaller handles and though it's the most beloved pot I own, the handles are an issue. I have a bit of arthritis in my thumbs and I found that lifting the pot using even Silicone Mitts was a bit squirmy and I felt a bit unsure, especially when taking a heavy pot out of the oven.

This pot has bigger handles for a better grip but is the same, wonderful enamel-over-cast iron that works so well for cooking soups and roasts. The enamel is inert (like glass) and is non-stick as long as you remember not to scratch it up with abrasive cleaners and scrubbers. If something sticks, you can soak it when it's cooled down, and there is a TRICK for the sad, black patches that happen occasionally to the distracted cook. (No saving the burnt-flavored food, you're on your own if your pot roast "catches" on the bottom. I taste the sauce, and if no burnt flavor permeates, we are good to go.) To remove burnt patches, let the pot cool down, fill about 1/4 the way with water, add a handful of baking SODA and boil up. Then let sit off heat. The action of the alkaline soda on the somewhat acidic burnt food will lift it right off the bottom in big flakes. Then you can wash out the pot as usual. For stains, you can use a paste of baking soda or try some Barkeeper's Friend (which is said to be non-abrasive.) The pot will eventually stain a bit on the bottom, and that is called "patina"; in other words, don't fret.

This pot stays on my stove all the time--it's pretty and I love the cherry red, though the other colors are equally attractive. I had to choose, and red is good in many kitchens (black and white, yellow, for example.) It looks appetizing.

There's not much that hasn't been said about this great French Oven, but one thing I'll add/emphasize is that if you're deciding between this and the 5 1/2 quart, this is the one to get.

The 5 1/2 quart pot is terrific, but it is too small for many soups, stews, etc. I can much more easily picture scenarios where people would be wishing the 5 1/2 quart had more room, while it is harder to imagine a case where this one would be too big.

This is a great addition to my kitchen. One of the main reasons I purchased this product was to make the artisan bread recipe that is floating out there on the web (although i think it is a Le Creuset recipe). The Dutch oven performed beautifully and I had an amazing loaf of crusty bread when I finished and hardly any clean-up to the oven. I will be baking bread regularly and will certainly use it for stews, soups, etc. Well worth the $!

You truly get what you pay for with Le Creuset.

Pros:
- even heat distribution
- quick heat up
- excellent heat retention
- tight seal where the lead meets the pot
- this particular size (7.25 qt) seems perfect as an everyday pot
- one pot meals (can go from stove top to menu)

Cons:
- really heavy, wouldn't recommend if you have arthritis

Color Name: CherrySize Name: 7-1/4-Quart
I was hesitant to buy a Le Creuset dutch oven for a long time because of the cost, but I've gotten every penny's worth out of it and more! I use it for everything...pot roast, soups, braised meats of all kinds. I've even used it to make artisan bread! It is expensive, but I see it as an investment that will outlast me!! I have some cast iron pieces from my parents and grandparents, but none of them are enameled. Enameling makes all the difference in the clean up, and that's why there's seldom a week that goes by that I have not used my Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven. In fact, I not only own the 7 quart oven, I now own the 6 quart and 2 quart ovens as well. I can't say enough good things about them, whatever the size. BUY ONE...you won't be sorry!

I purchased the 7 1/4 qt. round french oven in Marseille. The color was even better than any pictures I had seen. The french oven is a dream to cook with. I've used it on top of the stove and in the oven. It's a breeze to clean up which has made me love it even more. I use it so much that I now keep it out on my stove top. It looks as good as it cooks. My only regret? I wish I had invested in this a long time ago.

Color Name: CherrySize Name: 7-1/4-Quart
This is my 2nd 7 1/4 French Oven. The first lasted about 10 years before the interior enamel on the bottom was worn badly enough that I felt it needed to be replaced. Ironically the interior sides and exterior were pristine and could have passed for new (too bad they can't just refinish the bottom). LC told me to send it in for evaluation, and if they agreed that it was worn but not abused they would replace it free of charge (I had to pay shipping fees to them). They did in fact replace it with a new one. My second one is now over two years old, and it is also starting to show some minor signs of the enamel wearing. You can see it if you inspect it closely, you can also feel it if you run your fingers over it. It's a slightly grainy feeling, as opposed to the perfect smoothness of the intact enamel.

I am a serious home cook and I take excellent care of my cookware, especially this french oven. It's great for so many things, as well as being attractive. But I've really grown tired of cleaning it, and I now find myself using it less and less. Whenever I sear anything (which is often) I get stains on the bottom that are a huge pain to remove. Cleaning it can be a multi-day process of soaking and scrubbing with a no-scratch sponge. I should point out that I have used and cleaned it according to LC guidelines. I don't use prohibited abrasive pads or harsh chemicals. I only use plastic or wooden utensils, just to be extra careful.

I am confused about some reviews that I see claiming that the pot will not stain, or the enamel does not wear. Maybe others simply use the pot no matter what the condition. But I guarantee you if you do anything more than boil water you will get staining and wear. If this doesn't bother you then it could in fact last a lifetime.
