Finding the jubilant color, excellent performance, outstanding craft cookware that will last in your kitchen for your next generations? –No regret for the legendary pot of Le Creuset.
What we like:
Nothing new but never out-of-date for Le Creuset, this is the most famous for the best enameled cast-iron pots and pans on the market. For nearly 100 years of experiences, the brand is so-called ‘grandma’ among the kitchen tools for French-made, trusted quality, brightly vibrant color, classic design, safe nonstick and great performance. Some said, for serious chefs, having a nice cocotte (French oven) of Le Creuset is certainly no-regret investment---that’s really true.
Talking about cooking ability, due to cast-iron material, it heats up fantastically fast and retains the temperature longer than some other types of cookware material. As the result, it’s perfect for simmering, stewing and braising. Above its energy efficiency feature, these pots and pans are concerned to be a greenness nonstick, for not releasing PTFE, PFOA or harmful chemicals. What’s more, it works well with most ranges, which are gas, electric, halogen, ceramic, induction or even outdoor oven for camping, as well as dishwasher-safe. Combine with trusted quality and 101 years warrantee; it’s a well-worth investment.
Comparing to classic series, the new Signature series have some noticeable differences. The new collections have larger and wider handles for easier to carry around, higher heat-shocked resistance, more snugly fitting lids and a little more heatproof knobs, 500F instead of 450F. We also love the vast ranges of sizes (from 1 quart to 15.5 quarts) and dazzling colors for every need and decoration.
For more reviews, this is one of least products that we bet you’ll find it in almost everywhere, from experienced chefs, pro food bloggers to your auntie’s kitchens. So, Le Creuset cocotte is highly recommended in many expert articles, communities and your neighbors, includes About.com

What we don't like:
As you may know, any cast-iron tools are hefty and heavy; someone who need light-in-hand pot may not be comfortable to carry around. Moreover, comparing to others market brands, Le Creuset is quite expensive. However, for 101-year warrantee over defects and first-rate craftsmanship, it’s a good investment that can pass down to your next generations.
|To sum up, if you’re looking for a perfect combination of safety (for us and earth), quality and classic style in a remarkable pot, the Le Creuset can be fitly fulfill your needs, as well as last a lifetime long with very less care.
