- More about Le Creuset
The first Le Creuset foundry opened in 1925 in Fresnoy-le-Grand, France, and specialized in cast-iron cookware. The cast-iron pieces are still made at the original factory, using the traditional techniques of hand forging and casting in individual sand molds. The brightly pigmented porcelain-enamel glaze that first set Le Creuset cookware apart from other cast-iron cookware now comes in a wide range of traditional and contemporary colors. In 2013, Le Creuset began producing innovative stainless-steel cookware in Portugal with lids that incorporate the same signature three-ring design as the company's classic cast-iron pieces. This stainless-steel collection was awarded the prestigious 2014 Red Dot Award for product design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kalee from Perfect for Roast Chicken and Cabbage Rolls Absolutely love Le Creuset. Every color is my preference. This oval size is perfect for pot roast, Roast chicken with Vegas on the bottom, and grandmas Stuffed Cabbage. To clean just boil some water with baking soda in it. Let sit for an hour or so, and wipe it clean. You might need some baking soda paste to get curve areas. It’s always white and clean inside.Date published: 2018-04-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Lori from Perfect sear, beautiful addition to kitchen Received this as a gift from my husband after sending him all details..size, color. I had always had trouble cooking perfect pot roast in past...first searing in one pan and roasting in another. I can cook 7 lbs of pot roast in 6.75 size...enough to feed party of 10 adults perfectly. LOOK AT THAT SEAR! easy cleanup and Ocean color looks gorgeous in my new kitchen. This purchase is a no brainer.Date published: 2017-11-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Leighway from love this! I have never owned a Le Creuset and decided to buy one on a whim when I was Christmas shopping. I used it for the first time this week and it is amazing. I was a little wary of the oval shape and how that would work on my gas range, but it heats evenly and keeps everything at a perfect temperature. Wish I had owned one years ago. I'm glad I got the larger size too as it will not limit me to certain recipes.Date published: 2017-01-06Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristineK87 from Best Purchase Ever We received the 6 3/4 qt oval size in Midnight Blue off our Wedding Registry. I have always wanted a Le Creuset and this was our first piece from them. We just used it to cook an amazing, juicy beef roast for Christmas dinner and we are in love! The color is beautiful and unique. The size is a little heavy when filled but that’s to be expected with cast iron. I loved the ease of being able to sear the meat in the pot on the stove and then being able to add ingredients and transfer everything in the same pot to the oven, then to the refrigerator overnight and back to the stove to reheat the next day. The size is perfect since we were able to fit the 4lb roast, plenty of veggies, and the stock with room to spare. It heated quickly and evenly on our glass-top, even on medium heat. We are now Le Creuset converts (3 pieces and counting) and can't wait to cook more and add to our collection. Williams Sonoma- please add more in the Midnight Blue color!Date published: 2016-12-29Rated 5 out of 5 by NicoleU from Love the french grey! Love this product! I wish there were more le creuset items in the French Grey color way so I really could expand my collection! Please include more in the collection for this color!Date published: 2016-07-18Rated 5 out of 5 by MimiDC from Beautiful 6.75 qt Coral Le Creuset! Received this gorgeous oval French oven for Mother's Day. I have several of the classic colored ovens and was drawn to the coral color, which is only offered for a limited time and only from Williams-Sonoma. Like all LC enameled cast iron, the quality is exceptional, as are the functionality and design. The coral is offered in 3.5 and 5.5 qt round ovens and the 6.76 qt oval. If you like this color, get it while you can!Date published: 2016-04-30Rated 5 out of 5 by JR212 from THE BEST DUTCH OVENS! I have several Le Creuset Dutch ovens in various sizes and they are definitely a necessity in my kitchen. They retain heat perfectly and are built to last. I particularly like the lighter colored interior so it's easy to monitor the browning process. The exterior colors are also amazing. I find the weight is just the right balance between functional and practical. You can easily clean these with regular dish soap, but for any stubborn food stains just use a small amount of Bar Keepers Friend and they look like new. These are certainly an investment, but you will find they are worth the cost and can help bring every meal to the next level of delicious!Date published: 2016-02-17Rated 5 out of 5 by PeggieRN from Awesome once again .. Needed larger size for holidays , family dinners, bought the dark green which was on sale and it is the oval 7 qt size ... It is a gorgeous color and size , the first I have purchased in the oval size ... I love it ... The finish , the size it is perfect thanks Williams-Sonoma for bringing us these great choices in quality cookware !Date published: 2016-01-06

Can you roast a 4-lb chicken in the 5-qt size?Hi alan, You can put a 4-lb chicken in a 5-qt size oven but it will be fairly snug. If you're braising the chicken and would like to add vegetables along with it, we suggest getting the next size up.Date published: 2019-09-02
