Why we love it: This¬† French oven will become the busiest pot in your kitchen.¬† Well-sized for frequent use, it is great for boiling grains, blanching vegetables, deep frying, baking bread, and, of course, soups and stews. Its rustic good looks add a homey touch to anything you cook in it, including cakes and cobblers!
Le Creuset‚Äôs light-colored enamel makes it so easy to see the progress of the sear on our proteins, to gauge the darkness of flavorful fond and caramelizing onions, or to see the tip of a deep-frying thermometer. This versatile workhorse is perfect for maintaining consistent heat whether you are searing, saut√©ing or simmering.¬†
Heirloom quality, this pot will be a welcome sight for your clan of happy eaters as they feast on a light and flavorful bouillabaisse, a saucy and fragrant tagine, a cozy pot of pho,¬† a fried chicken fiesta etc.¬†
Large loop handles make it easy to move the pot from stove top, to the oven, to the table,¬† and finally to the dishwasher for deceptively easy meal-making for decades.
