New Treat: Le Creuset pot

For an early birthday present, I bought myself a prezzie: my first Le Creuset pot, a 2.75 qt. round Dutch oven. It arrived yesterday.

Oh, it is so beautiful! I cannot wait to use it.

This is super-great, too, because I just unloaded a large group of older pans to Goodwill. This one will more than fulfill the use of those older pots. It is also perfect in size for my single-life cooking,w here I really only want to cook two or three servings (not eight!) for me. Part of my New Year's resolutions for 2010, to cook and eat better. Meaning in part smaller, cheaper, more skillfully.

Yay, me!

2.26.16: Six years later and not a week has gone by I didn't use this... except when I was out of town. Soups, stews, and all sorts of delicious cookings. Next to the crockpot, this pan is probably one of the best investments I've made for my kitchen. Bad news, this color, Cobalt, has been "discontinued" by Le Creuset. There are three or four other blues, but none this gorgeous. Good news, before they were gone I got these beauties:


  1. Yay Le Creuset! That blue is beautiful.I had that pot, but in orange, until the enamel on the bottom wore through after one of the kids burned it, badly. I need to replace it.

    I love my Le Creuset saucepans, and I just bought a stockpot on super-cheap sale. I made a date with a friend to visit the LeCreuset outlet store later this spring -- we're giving ourselves a couple of months to save up.

  3. Oooh: sale. I bought this on super-sale, too. My next purchase must be a grill pan, iron.

  4. There is almost nothing better than a really nice cooking pot. I purchased a Henri Emile cooking pot for my husband last year and it has held many a tasty stew.
