le creuset is so expensive, so heavy, but so so nice.

@MissParrot:  my sister and friend has some of the pieces. I’m also interested in other Bees responses. I really want it, but the dutch oven is ridiculously expensive, and I’m not sure if I’m willing to take the plunge

My grandmother still has the Le Creuset she was gifted for her wedding in the 1940s and still uses it to make amazing family dinners. Expensive, but it will last forever!

I prefer Staub, but either will get the job done and last a long time, with proper care.

@MissParrot:  If it’s not for cooking with, don’t get something so expensive.  I have a Le Creuset stockpot that I love, but I have a Lodge enamel dutch oven.  It’s AWESOME and it was like $40 as opposed to like $140.

I have a dark red Le Creuslet cast iron dutch oven and 2 of their rectangular roasting pans.  I have used them multiple times and think they will last a longgggggggggg time.  Great registry item, and even better we did not have to buy them because they are pretty pricey 😉

I have one Lodge enameled cast iron piece – and I like it and it perfoms well.  I also have several Costco enameled cast iron pieces that I like even better.

We looked at Le Crueset but decided to go for Denby which is pretty much the same only slightly cheaper. We LOVE it, got the dutch oven and a griddle pan for our wedding. Amazing casseroles come out of that dutch oven.

I’m not a fan of the Dutch oven because it’s not meant to be used on the stove top. If you want to brown or sear something then slow bake it, you have to get a second pot or pan dirty.

@Horseradish:  I’ve done that in a dutch oven…oops!

 

Also, guys…it’s Le Creuset.  No L in there…!

I cook a ton and actually prefer my lodge cookware 10 to 1.

I have a lot of their casserole dishes (from TJ Maxx and Marshall’s) and love them. I got the fennel color because my kitchen is already decorated in mainly green. I also have a large pitcher from them. I know my Mom got me one of their cast iron ovens from TJ Maxx for $70, she’s saving it for the wedding as a gift but wanted to make sure with me that she got the right thing and that she got a good deal. So far I’m very happy with all of my products from them.
