I love to look at and cook with this set
on March 17, 2012
I have looked at Le Creuset on and off for years. Every time one of the TV chefs would say how great one of the Le Creuset dutch ovens were, I'd look at them and would think the price wasn't worth it. Then I found a slightly used one at a really good price (I think the person didn't know what they had!) and tried it out. Total love! I used it every day for almost 4 months before I decided I wanted more Le Creuset pieces.
But again the price. One day this popped up on the "Recommended for You" and I added it to my wish list. When I got an unexpected bonus at work, and saw the price was reduced to $699 from the $1100, I jumped on it. I have no regrets - it has been worth every penny. I have the pots on display on shelves because the color is so beautiful and they clean up very well (I hand wash them). I've used them on the stove top and in the oven, and have also used the mini-cocottes to take my lunch to work because they go in the microwave. (I use rubber bands to hold the lid on in my lunch bag.)
They heat and cook evenly and the price for this many pieces is a steal.
