This one also looks great on the table as well.
It is kind of a specialized item, but that is what I like about it. I am a kitchen "stuff" fanatic and collect cookware that I think I will enjoy using, This is an example of one piece that I will get a lot of use and enjoyment out of.
I make a lot of soups, stews and chili during the fall and winter months and this is the pot that I will use. It is great for bringing right to the table and serving from it, because it retains the heat so well.
It is great for heating up those leftovers and again retaining the heat after they have been reheated.
I used this one and a regular casserole pot and cooked them side by side. This one was cooked faster and due to the shape has more surface area for the Crust (everyone loves to get the bread-crumb topping, so the more the better)
I debated whether or not to buy a cassoulet pot. As how many casserole type pots do you need. But I am glad I did. I feel it was a worthwhile purchase. I make Cassoulet about 10 times during the winter and I felt it made a superior quality cassoulet compared to a casserole pot.
The quality of this pot is great, I like enamel cast iron, for even heat of cooking and the Le Creuset has a superior enamel finish compared to others I have used. I find it to be more non stick.
With proper care this pot will easily outlast me.
