Rated 5 out of 5 by AZjo from Lives up to its raving reviews Researches have shown that cooking with cast iron is best for health vs. the non-stick pots/pans. So when I moved, I finally took the plunge to invest in a 5.5 qt Dutch oven this summer. I’ve used it several times since and I must say it lives up to its reputation of being a high quality pot that cooks delicious food. Being cast iron, it’s very heavy so that is the only con for me. It’s perfect for making a bit pot of soup. It’s easy to clean as well. No regrets purchasing it!Date published: 2019-11-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Lgaster from favorite new dutch oven Love the the versatility and the caribbean color.

You only live once... why was I waiting to have great cookware? Been having fun making old fashioned goulash and warmed up some navy bean soup for lunch. Bought the 5 1/2 qt size and just waiting for it to arrive to make a huge pot of chili!Date published: 2019-02-21Rated 4 out of 5 by sdrose from Beautiful cookware Love this and it is perfect to make small meals. Love the QUINCE color!Date published: 2019-01-12Rated 1 out of 5 by King from Beware defective product... Bought this (3.5 qt, Flame) and was really excited to use it, washed it, and started cooking with the lid off until I had to put it in the oven to braise. Found out the lid doesn't actually fit and it teeter-totters side to side. Not secure at all, so you can't braise like this. Pretty upset considering how I heard these were supposed to be the best of the best quality and they let stuff like this get by. Will not order online again.Date published: 2018-11-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Stay72 from Mint 3.5 and 5.5 Mint is such a beautiful and neutral color to add into my collection. The quality is exceptional! I habe braised, browned and sauted... very even cooking and clean up is a breeze. To beautiful to put away! Fantastic investment!Date published: 2018-05-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Ransom423 from Fantastic! Just purchased the collection in the new Teal. It's beautiful. Love the multi-purpose use of the pot. I can do anything from sauces, stews, soups, pot roast, risotto, and briskets. The list can go on. Love the durability and quality of the product. Easy to care for and clean. Bar Keeper's Best Friend works like wonders on stubborn stains.Date published: 2018-04-23
Hi! Interested in purchasing this, but I have a ceramic stove. Is getting a Dutch oven that is too big/heavy suggested? Looking at the 4.5 quart. Hi Pumpkin, Although cast iron cookware is induction compatible, we do not recommend using it on a glass top cooktop because it may scratch the top. There is also a danger of dropping the oven and cracking the glass.Date published: 2020-01-13
I got the rose dutch oven and noticed that the black coloring is coming through the pink color..on the handles and the bottom a bunch. Is that common? Also on the lid the name isn’t raised or 3D as it seems in the pictures.Dear Emily, We sent you an email earlier this year requesting for you to send us some images of this issue you're seeing. If you're able to send them to us, we can then forward them over to our Cookware merchant to review with the vendor. We hope to hear from you!Date published: 2019-12-26
What’s size 26? Can we cook on glass electric cooktop?Hi Lulu. 26 means that this dutch oven has a 5.5 quart capacity. Although this is induction compatible, we don’t recommend this for ANY glass cooktops (electric or induction). The reason is the weight of cast-iron due to possible damage such as scratching the top from sliding the heavy pots or even dropping the pots and breaking the glass.Date published: 2019-12-17

The LC 7.25 qt cast iron dutch oven claims to be 11" diameter and 5" tall. The LC deep saute pan claims to be 12" diameter, 5.25" tall, but only 4.25 qt capacity. How can the deep saute pan be wider and taller, but have less capacity?Hi Mike, The height for the deep sauté pan includes the domed lid. The Dutch oven has a traditional flat lid. The sauté pan dimensions are: 12" diam., 3 1/2" high; 5 1/2" high with lid.Date published: 2019-03-20
I am not sure which size to purchase of Le Cresent Dutch Ovens. Or if the round is better than the oval. Hi Bake, Shape and size really depends on what types of food you typically cook and how much of it you cook at a time. An oval dutch oven can better accommodate a whole chicken or a large piece of meat such as a leg of lamb or pork tenderloin. As for size, a 5.5-qt. round oven serves 5-6. Here's a size guide for reference: https://www.williams-sonoma.com/netstorage/pdf/le-creuset-oven-size-chart.pdfDate published: 2019-11-15
