My favorite use is currently baking bread, since I have discovered no-knead bread is perfect for this piece. I was slightly concerned because no knead bread bakes at a very high temperature, higher than the recommended temp for the knob on the lid, but I called customer service and they said many people bake it at high temps with no issues, and also that I could purchase a stainless steel knob for high temperature baking, which I have done (getting it on the lid is a breeze.) If you want to keep the regular knob, I did not have any issues with it cracking at a 500 degree temperature. I just bought the stainless steel knob because I am paranoid.
One issue I had (which was totally my fault) is that I put olive oil in the pan at a higher temperature than I should have, as olive oil has a low smoke point. I turned my back for a few moments too long and ended up with a stain in the bottom of my pot. However, after reading online some fixes I boiled baking soda and water in the french oven, let cool, then scrubbed the stain with a baking soda/water paste with a magic eraser and it looks like brand new!
These pots retain an even heat like no other and regardless of what you're preparing the results are exceptional. There's an old adage which I find to be true and that's the food you prepare is only as good as the ingredients you use and cookware used to prepare it. Along side of quality knives - or at the very least one high quality chef knife - a Le Creuset pot will reward you over and over again with a lifetime of durable and always impressive performance.
Known for their outstanding results with braising and searing a Le Creuset pot is perfect for stewing, steaming and saute.
They easily go from cook top to oven for finishing and to table top for serving. Unlike other enamel coated cookware these pots with proper care won't chip, crack or burn. Recently I left this very pot on the stove at far to high a temperature burning the bottom terribly. I thought it was ruined. But an overnight soak in soapy water and the burned on "cement" came off without a hitch.
Personally I prefer the oval shape. It's perfect for oblong roasts, whole chickens, Duck and so on. I may have finally discovered the secret to my Mothers exquisite pot roast which I've been trying to re create for decades - it was in part anyway due to the pot!
The brown meats and veggies wonderfully and hold an awful lot of food - which all cooks evenly.
Le Creuset come beautifully packaged with instructions for proper care a recipe booklet and a booklet of techniques.
As for the cherry color, it's deep and rich with wonderful dark shadows, it reminds me of an enormous ripe Bing cherry. It's a gorgeous pot that will help you serve up equally gorgeous food, time and time again.
I recommend saving your money--in my case $300 for a pot I hoped to hand down to my daughter as an heirloom. Stay away from Le Creuset products.
The product itself - it's LeCreuset (say no more). Many people shy away from these products because of the price. I think it is worth it. I don't know, maybe it is just the price that makes the meal taste better. I do know that this will last us a lifetime and then some. First few meals have come out great with even cooking. Cleaning baked on debris was no problem. Looking forward to alot more meals through the winter.
