Le Creuset French Ovens

A round oven is an indispensable tool for anybody who makes soups, stews, and roasts to name but a few. Le Creuset is the leader in the field and not just because these babies are so beautiful. These sand cast iron ovens are painstakingly polished and finished by hand, sprayed with two coats of enamel and kiln fired not once but twice. The end result is cookware that efficiently and evenly conducts and retains heat.

Le Creuset has an excellent life time warranty and they repaired my scratched enamel no questions asked years after my purchase. See the official website for details.

If you simmer, marinate, caramelize, braise, poach or brown, I recommend having at least one Le Creuset French oven in your pantry.
