      Dutch Oven Round Product - Features and Benefits

      ENAMELED CAST IRON

      Since 1925, Le Creuset cast iron has been recognized for its strength and durability. Cast individually in sand molds, then hand-inspected by French artisans, each piece represents a rich heritage and continues a tradition of lasting, authentic design.



      Heat Retention

      Cast iron distributes heat slowly and evenly over the entire vessel, making it ideal for all forms of cooking, whether slow-cooking, roasting, searing, stir-frying or baking.



      Smooth Interior Enamel

      The glass-like finish in our ovens and braisers promotes caramelization, resists staining and prevents sticking to make cleanup easy.



      Black Interior Enamel

      The black interior of our skillets is specially formulated for high-temperature cooking, and does not require seasoning.

      This is a great piece of cookware for any kitchen - I use it almost as much as my 3.5 quart braiser. It heats up quickly, stays hot, it's easy to clean, durable (that does make it pretty heavy, so not for weenies), and it's so nice to look at. I already love to cook, but when the cookware is so pretty it takes it to a new level for me. I typically cook for myself and my husband, and double recipes so we have leftovers for a day or two. The 5.5 quart size has been perfect for that - it can handle between 4-6 servings, depending on your appetite and recipe.

      I bought it at the Le Creuset Store, and had it shipped to my home. It arrived and I used it about a dozen times, then after about 40-50 days of owning it, the enamel in the bottom chipped (a pretty big chip too!). So, that was a drag, I called them to see if it could be replaced (couldn't get a hold of human, so i left a message - no reply as of yet). Then i wrote them an email, that was just today, so no reply yet (if they get back to me, i'll let you all know, and if they accept a return/replacement, i shall let you all know too) But right now, i am VERY unhappy that such an expensive pot broke within the first 2 months. I put 2 stars (and not one) because if they replace it I'll be happier).

      Comments about Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven:

      I have been calling this the Magic Pot because everything I cook in here comes out better than expected. I now would like a smaller version for the empty nest nights. This dutch oven simply does the job better than anything else I've owned in my 40+ years of cooking. All my other cookware is jealous. The only thing I think I wouldn't do with this pot is boil pasta.

        Comments about Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven:

        I purchased a Le Creuset Dutch Oven out of curiosity. The cookware is beautiful and expensive. The cost commands respect. The weight causes you to handle it with purpose. It is heavy, but not over whelming. The light interior truly helps you see what is going on with your dish. Cooking has become a joy instead of a chore. Cost, weight, beauty, quality and lower heat are a perfect storm that came together to improve my cooking skills. I will add that I have to use a soft bristle brush most of the time to clean my pot. I will be cooking more, but I doubt I will ever qualify as a gourmet.

            I love the BRIGHT RED! I have to say... I love making soup in this Dutch Oven. I could not tell you which i use more, the Braiser or this 5.5 quart WORKHORSE. If I have to cook for a bigger crowd, I use this. I feel so special in the kitchen with this. It makes you try fancier meals. I love Le Creuset Recipes too. Oslo Bucco, Beoff Bourginion, Chili, and ALL the soups. I slow have the wider shorter 3.5 Le Creuset, that William Sonoma had a special on. Perfect for two people. GET IT!

                Comments about Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven:

                I received my 5½ quart Caribbean dutch oven for Christmas and I absolutely love it! You can make almost anything in it. I've made pastas, curries, stews, soups, and other "one pot" meals. It easily goes from the stove to the oven and vice versa. It heats up evenly and retains heat beautifully, though if your stove top isn't the most powerful it may take a few minutes to come to temperature (mine is 15+ years old and takes a good 5 minutes at least). The lid also fits security. It's very easy to clean. I did see light brown spots on the bottom of the oven after cooking one particular meal, but the spots have come off with white vinegar (I add enough vinegar to coat the bottom and left it for an hour and the spots came right off when I rubbed them with a paper towel). I don't mind the weight of the oven. It's my new favorite tool in the kitchen, and I use it every chance I get!

                  I have a family of four. I love to cook but don't have the time to cook every day. I use this pot frequently to make double-batches of my favorite soups and stews that we can reheat later. Or when we have company over it's the perfect size. I LOVE this French oven and I'm sure I will use it for many years to come. Expensive investment purchase but worth every penny!

                  Comments about Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven:

                  Let me start by saying I've been a cast iron snob for 30+ years so, my sweet wife bought this for me for Father's Day and it has become just about the only cookware I will use other than omelet pans for eggs and large pots for pasta.

                  I absolutely love this dutch oven and I hope I can collect more of the Le Creuset in the near future.

                  Cast aside any fears you may have, it is WELL WORTH THE COST, and will deliver a LIFETIME of service to you!
