Why we love it: If you cook for 3 or more people, this French oven will become a fixture in your kitchen!! 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, even a batch of super-buttery popcorn for movie night!
Le Creuset’s 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, sautéing 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. The elegant oval shape makes this pot extra-ideal for poaching sides of fish, roasting a whole chicken or preparing vegetables like corn on the cob.
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.
