Rated 4 out of 5 by KaitS from Le Creuset is top notch I own several Le Creuset cookware and skillet pieces. It is the Cadillac of cookware for so many things. My husband got this for me as a present some time ago because I wanted it. I already had a Le Creuset Dutch Oven and another Le Creuset Oval Baker...both of which I use nearly every week, but wanted to add this deep covered baker to my arsenal. However, I just don't grab it nearly as often as the other two pieces aforementioned. As another commenter already said, if you have the Dutch Oven, it is a bit redundant, unless you need several pieces of cookware at once. I make all kinds of meats...whole chicken, pork and beef roasts, various stews, etc. But my Dutch Oven or Oval Baker works just fine for those tasks, and it's easy to go from browning and sauteing right into the oven. The Deep Covered Baker has bumps on the bottom's surface, so I wouldn't use it to brown or saute, which is maybe another reason I don't grab it as often. I have yet to try any casserole in this baker, so it may be great for that. Ultimately though, it just doesn't get the use my other two get. It still has that terrific enameled surface, so cleaning is extremely easy. And the baker looks good and is nice and deep, so that's a plus. It's just not what I consider a go-to.Date published: 2018-03-01Rated 5 out of 5 by Katrina from Deep Covered Baker Love, Love, Love this Baker!Wonderful Quality Item!Date published: 2017-10-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Soya from Love it!!! Even cooking and food tastes delicious! Bought this before Christmas last year. FInally got to use it. It's so awesome!!! Amazing with even cooking. Food tastes a lot more flavorful and delicious compare to using the other cookwares.Date published: 2017-08-11Rated 5 out of 5 by afrosaxon from I love it! This was my first piece of Le Creuset (a birthday gift to myself) and I am so pleased! I've used this baker to make lasagna, roasted chicken, and even bread. Everything cooks evenly and well, and the baker keeps the food warm long after it's taken out of the oven. The enameled surface makes for easy clean-up (no more soaking, like I had to do with my glass bakeware). I can even store the baker in the refrigerator if need be (remove the cover and use foil to cover the dish). Now that I see that the baker is still in stock, I may have to purchase another in a different color.Date published: 2017-05-24Rated 4 out of 5 by anemone from Skip this if you own a dutch oven I've been wanting one of these for some time before finally getting one. It cooks great but if you already own a dutch oven then you can skip this. I find the dutch oven more versatile than this because it can go on the stove top and in the oven. The only time I can see this coming in handy is during the holidays when multiple large dishes need to be cooked at once.Date published: 2017-05-24Rated 5 out of 5 by CocoLovesToCook from My favorite new baker!! I purchased this baker a couple months ago and am delighted to discover that I use it frequently. I did not realize how useful the shape and depth of this baker would be for many dishes. It has become universal in my kitchen. Everything from small roasts to meatballs. Not only do I cook in it - the baker is fantastic for oven reheating. And cleanup is a breeze. Nothing sticks to it and a very quick wash is all it takes to make it perfectly clean like new again. The price is extremely good given this baker's quality and usefulness.Date published: 2017-02-23Rated 4 out of 5 by mshipleyfl from A go to dish This is a great dish but could be a little deep and therefore take longer for your meal to cook. It is heavy, but cooks evenly and looks beautiful.Date published: 2017-02-09Rated 3 out of 5 by GranNam from No instructions or recipes included. Have not used baker yet, it is beautiful but no real instructions or recipes were included. Don't know if they were just left out. Plan to wing it but would have liked to have information "how to use".Date published: 2016-04-05
