Congratulations to Lindsay from Minneapolis for winning the pan!

When I think of Le Creuset cookware, I think of shiny French ovens in a rainbow of colors of that are sturdy and will last forever.  The enameled cast-iron of Le Creuset roasters provides such even heating that you don’t have to worry about things burning which makes it perfect for placing a slow-cooking meal in the oven, letting it go with nothing to worry about for several hours and then opening the lid to find a perfectly cooked meal ready for you to enjoy.


I love that my Le Creuset French oven allows me to make one-pot meals that require minimal prep and cleanup.   I throw the ingredients for a soup into the pot and let it simmer on the stove or place the ingredients for beef bourguignon into the roaster and put it into the oven to do it’s magic for a few hours.  Once I am finished with my meal, no matter how impossible to clean my Le Creuset French oven looks after baking something for hours in it, it amazes me how easy it is to clean!  Dishes are easily my least favorite household chore so something that comes clean relatively easily is valuable in my book.


While I was somewhat familiar with the quality of Le Creuset’s enameled cast-iron products, I had never tried any of their stainless steel cookware.  We were given a nice brand of stainless steel cookware as a wedding gift and I didn’t think it could get any better, until I tried one of Le Creuset’s tri-ply stainless steel fry pans.  It is now my go-to pan for just about everything.  I love that it is durable enough that I can sear a filet and then place it into the oven to finish it off in the same pan.  I use my Le Creuset tri-ply stainless steel fry pan often to get a sauce for pasta going or to sauté shrimp.  They really have thought of everything with the sturdy handles and brushed surface so that you don’t notice fingerprints on your cookware.

Le Creuset

Perhaps the best feature of both types of Le Creuset cookware is that I am confident that I will be using the same pieces that I own now for many years to come with hardly any show of wear because the craftsmanship is so superior.


If you are making a birthday present list for yourself or searching for a wedding gift for a friend, you would be wise to consider a piece of Le Creuset cookware for any gift list.

    I’d probably sear some greens and cook an egg in with it. It’s been my go-to meal for months now and I never seem to tire of eating it.

    Two days ago as I stood in the kitchen with my failed omelet I thought — I really need some new pans. I’d definitely make a successful omelet. 🙂 I love seeing all those colors in your post. Proof that a piece of cookware can brighten the mood.

    I would simmer a curry for a few hours – slow & steady does the trick. Every time I see one of these pans, I dream of having one of my very own!

    This gorgeous pan would be perfect for something started on the stovetop, then finished in the oven, so I’m thinking I’d make a classic tarte tatin.

    This is like power tools for the kitchen! My idea of gorgeous. I think I’d probably making some sort of egg dish.

    Julia Child’s Beef Bourguignon would be a fun recipe to try.

    In a steel frying pan I like to melt a little butter and quickly cook a hunk of salmon then de-glaze with some white balsamic vinegar

    Seeing the soup you have in your photos reminds me of my favorite soup which is Rustic Italian Tortellini Soup. We make it several times throughout each winter and I’d definitely use the pot to make that.
