Le Creuset Dinnerware
Le Creuset dinnerware pieces are a vibrant expression of color and character. These stoneware pieces features Le Creuset's legendary raised rings and a perfectly matched pallete of signature shades.
Each piece of Le Creuset dinnerware is crafted in the same careful process as all Le Creuset stoneware - with a colorful, durable exterior enamel that matches other stoneware flawlessly while protecting from utensil marks and scratches. Every plate, bowl and mug is designed to complement any collection of stoneware, and is finished with Le Creuset's signature three-ring accent along the exterior.
- High-quality exterior enamel protects against metal marks and other damage
- Hard-wearing, impermeable finish fired at temperatures as high as 2192 degrees F is safe for cutting on with knives
- Unmatched thermal resistance from -65 degrees F to 500 degrees F -- safe for the freezer, microwave, oven, broiler and dishwasher
- Less than 1% porosity, blocking moisture absorption which can lead to cracking, crazing and rippling along the interior
- Unique clay mixture that creates a very dense material when fired, maintaining even temperatures and preventing scorching
- Resistant to staining and flavor/odor absorption
- A perfectly color-matched palette of bold, consistent tones for easy mixing and matching with other Le Creuset products
All items in the Le Creuset stoneware range are original designs and have been hand-crafted, making each piece unique. Due to this uniqueness, there may be slight variations from piece to piece.
Le Creuset Stoneware is safe for use in the microwave, freezer, refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and broiler. The maximum oven-safe temperature is 500 degrees F / 260 degrees C.
The enameled surface is easy to clean and scratch-resistant. The enamel is completely hygienic and will not absorb odors or flavors. Le Creuset Stoneware is extremely strong and durable, and resists staining, chipping and cracking. The handles, knobs and rims have been designed for a secure, easy-to-hold grip.
Cleaning and Care
DO NOT use any Stoneware piece on the stovetop or any other direct heat source.
OVEN: Maximum oven-safe temperature is 500 degrees F / 260 degrees C. Use oven mitts for lifting at all times.
BROILER: When using under a broiler allow a gap of no less than 2 1/2 inches between the rim of the dish and the heat source.
MICROWAVE: Handles may become hot during prolonged microwave use, especially if the handles are enclosed with plastic wrap. Cover just the open top of the dish, leaving the handles exposed.
FREEZER-TO-OVEN USE: Do not place a frozen dish of food in a preheated oven. Place the frozen dish in a cold oven and set the temperature, allowing the dish and oven to heat together. Before serving always check that the center of the food is completely and uniformly hot.
CLEANING: Before the first use, wash the dish in hot, soapy water, and rinse and dry thoroughly. For most day-to-day cleaning, cool the dish for a few minutes before washing and drying, or wash in the dishwasher, allowing the full cycle to complete. Never leave a dish fully immersed in water. For removal of stubborn residues allow the dish to cool, fill with warm, soapy water and allow it to soak for 10 to 20 minutes. Wash in the usual way using a plastic brush or scouring pad if necessary.

My primary concern is that the stoneware pieces are made in China (or Vietnam, if I recall correctly from the now-discarded packaging.) I'm willing to pay more for Le Creuset iron because I know a certain level of worker- and environmental-safety can be assumed in a product manufactured in France. The name brand on this stoneware adds a LOT to the price, but I don't know if the production deserves the price premium over attractive stoneware I could purchase at mass merchandise stores. That said, the quality of all the Le Creuset stoneware pieces I've received so far has been good--smooth edges, gorgeous color, no chips or bumps or visible flaws.
I have two of these mugs, given to me as a gift. They are slightly larger than a "standard" coffee mug--i.e., the kind your company might give out with its logo as a freebie--but they aren't so enormous as to be unwieldy (too heavy) or to let my coffee cool before I drink it all. I like the size. My (ladies' medium) hand fits comfortably in the handle. Since receiving these last month, they've become my go-to mugs when I reach into the cupboard every morning.
I discovered today that the Le Creuset Stoneware Mug makes a perfect base for pressing AeroPress coffee! Of course, a standard mug will also work, but the wider, heavier Le Creuset mug is very secure and sturdy, and probably the best mug in my kitchen for enjoying my new coffee maker.

What they do not tell you is that these mugs are made in China and now I am once again worried about their quality.
I wish they'd at least mentioned this fact and I would probably not have purchased a set of them. In fairness they look good but who knows how they were made and at 11$ a pop, I can get a dozen of other made in China mugs that look the same.
They're capacious and comfortable to hold. The lips are about 1/8ths of an inch thick on each, though the cobalt blue and red mugs inexplicably have thicker walls below the lip (and thus will hold less coffee or tea than the others). The glazing is also fairly consistent, in bright and cheery saturated colors. The interior is a pale coffee color, not white, and not noticeably different to the naked eye across the mugs.
However, one of the four came with a slight mar in the glaze: the fennel green mug has a small-sand-grain-sized imperfection in the glaze that is quite obvious. I'm surprised it passed Le Creuset quality standards. I wouldn't complain normally -- it looks as sturdy as the others -- but when I pay $12 to $16 for a single mug by Le Creuset, I expect perfection.
