Miss D’Orsay posted a blog entry about registering in general. Reading it led me to some questions about Le Creuset. I love to cook and would like to add a few essential Le Creuset items to our registry (they are so darn expensive!) If you have Le Creuset or have registered for any items, can you recommend some of the "essentials?"

oh i love love love my le creuset pieces. if you are going to go all in one great piece, I’d say go dutch oven (try to resist laughing each time you say dutch oven). You can fry in it, make soup, braise chicken, its just a great all around versatile piece.
I was super duper lucky to be able to pick up a saucier pan at Williams Sonoma for $25! Say WHAT, yep 25 buckaroos, an amazing find. I make a lot of goodies in that little pan too.
We have the tea kettle too, its still in the box in storage. 🙁 i can’t wait to liberate it though.

i completely agree with beesknees. dutch oven is the way to go because it can be used for anything. i also have one of their baking dishes and it’s good too.

Also look into Staub rather than Le Creuset. A lot of serious cooks prefer Staub it seems.

Thanks Ladies – if I already have an electric pressure cooker (Cuisinart, amazing!) would you still suggest a dutch oven? I have read they are sort of similar in function.

I know this post is a little old but I wanted to throw in the fact that depending on where you live you might be able to find Le Creuset stuff at TJ Maxx. I’m in the Boston area and I pick Le Creuset stuff up all the time at the TJ Maxx by me. I mean, I’m still registering for the bigger items, but keep an eye out! I took the dutch oven off our registry bc we got our slow cooker…. I’m torn but I think we’ll use the slow cooker more…
Also for those in the Boston area, Wrentham outlets has a fabulous Le Creuset outlet store!

I used to sell cookware and unless you colect a le creuset color staub is where it’s at! That being said, le creuset makes stoneware mixing bowls that are super heavy and awesome for serving, since they hold heat and you can warm them in advance!
