      ENAMEL ON STEEL

      High-Quality Materials

      Our enamel on steel stockpots and teakettles are built to last. Sturdy carbon steel ensures efficient heating and resists rust, while the porcelain enamel coating resists chipping, staining and scratching.

      Superior Performance

      Le Creuset stockpots feature a generous base size for greater contact with the stovetop heat source, as well as a tight-fitting lid to lock in moisture. Kettles have a wide opening for easy filling and cleaning.

      We primarily use our stockpots for making pasta, soup, boiling corn and crabs. I chose Le Creuset because we love the ease of the enameled finish, and the excellent heat retention, and we wanted a lightweight pot that was still manageable when full of water and food.

      This pot is miles better at heating and retaining heat than the cheap models I've bought in the past from department stores - but it's not perfect. The bottom still gets hot spots, hence I docked a star, but unless I am going for a much heavier, and difficult to handle, pot this is the best I've found.

      However, this is still an enameled product, and still requires care like all of them - don't use metal utensils, don't heat without liquid inside… LC is up front about the care of the pot, and the only glitch we've had is forgetting and using a metal spoon, we chipped the enamel i the bottom. That is OUR fault.

      A NOTE ON COUNTRY OF MANUFACTURE:

      Some customers believe that the Thai/Chinese made products - which are generally all the stoneware or steel items - are inferior.

      Being made in France is no guarantee in and of itself of quality - there is a massive difference between enameled cast iron and enameled stoneware or steel…. The difference in the type of product is explained well by LC, and the care and usage instructions differ accordingly. Stoneware is easy to chip in general compared to metal - this is not a function of where the product is made. Many Americans believe by default a product made in China is 'crud' - but in truth quality is dependent on the factory controls and raw materials - not on the country of origin. e.g., a secret in the designer fashion world is that the majority of a purse or garment will be made in China, with finishing touches - like handles or buttons - applied in a European country, so that the designer can put a 'made in italy/france' label on the product to preserve the cache that comes from european manufacture.

      Bottom line: let your experience and the experience of other consumers be your guide - not the 'Made in' mark.

      So I have now owned two of these pots. They are great for quick soups and stock. But if making something that cooks down for hours and has the potential to burn to the bottom, stay far away. The two times I have burned food to the bottom of the pot it has destroyed the bottom coating so that if flakes off (once with chili, the other time making jam). These pots aren't worth the price because they can't hold up to this type of use.

        Comments about Le Creuset Stockpot:

        I received this 16 quart stockpot as a gift! How generous! Of course I love the Palm color, but in addition to that, it was a joy to make my Chicken Soup in it! The clean up was equally as pleasurable! I would recommend the Le Creuset Stockpot to any cook.

          Comments about Le Creuset Stockpot:

          I use the 6qt and 8qt version of this pot all the time for cooking pasta and stocks. I use the 16qt version for Lobsters. I have a suggestion, consider re-releasing the vintage cast iron butter warmers w/ the Lobster pot or alone. They're a great combination/set. I have two but need more and can't find them. (I also have the stoneware candle warmers and they're very cute too but they don't keep things really warm and they break). BTW, these scratch but a lot but the scratches can be removed with LC cleaner or Bar keepers friend

          Comments about Le Creuset Stockpot:

          Really like these enamel on steel pots for cooking / boiling pasta, stock, and seafood. Regarding Lobster, I ran across 2 small LC cast iron butter warmers (vintage). If you re-introduced those from your archives, it would make a great set. Lobster Pot and the two small and incredibly cute butter warmers. If would be good to sell them separately too for those of us that have pots already. The stoneware fondue offering is nice - I have some of those too but in my opinion, they're too big to warm butter. Thoughts????

              I purchased the large red pot, and love it! I'm definitely going to purchase the blue pot for my daughter...and the smaller red pot for myself. This pot is very durable, but light weight, so perfect for those who can't lift the cast iron pots. I prepare many tasty meals (soups, vegetables, lobsters/other seafood, etc) in this wonderful pot. Also, the lovely vibrant color is certainly an eye-catcher - It get's lots of compliments...and definitely spruces up the dullest kitchen. If I could, I would purchase one in every color, but then my husband would expect me to cook every day - LOL!

                I've had this pot for about five years and it is always used when we're entertaining. Great for making large quantities of garlic mashed potatoes, chowder and other high volume goods. It's not so heavy that I can't lift it when it's full which is why I like it. Highly recommend.

                    I can't get enough of this stock pot. It has so many wonderful features. If you are even considering purchasing this, do it. It is worth every penny. You will have this pot for years. My favorite thing about this pot is the easy clean up. After caramelizing onions in it, and wondering how in the world I will ever get the bottom clean again.... it easily comes off. Love it!

                      At first I was worried that I had damaged the enamel the very first time I used the pot. I then noticed the metallic "scratches" were in fact marks left by the spoon. A gentle buffing with Bar Keepers Friend restored the pot to like-new condition.
