Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Stockpot - Foodbuzz's Daily Special!

Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Stockpot

Here is the advertisement...
The enamel-on-steel construction of Le Creuset stockpots provides uniform heating for slow-simmering soups and spaghetti sauce or cooking pasta. The 6-quart size is ideal for cooking pasta or rice, and for boiling whole potatoes or sweet potatoes for mashing. The mainstay of French chefs for nearly a century, Le Creuset cookware features bold and bright colors in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit any culinary need. Each cookware piece is skillfully finished by hand. Imported. Dishwasher-safe, but hand washing is recommended. 6-quart capacity.

  1. I've used Le Creuset products before. It's a reasonable price for the brand and quality, but the description is sort of ridiculous. It would be sort of absurd to make rice in a 6-quart stockpot. Unless, of course, you're making a huge amount of rice. 6-quart pots are good for homemade soups, pasta sauces, or cooking in bulk.

    Not that you won't make soups or anything. I just think the description is ridiculous.

  2. I was hoping to hear what your other readers had to say about this pot. This is a very good price for Le Creuset.

  3. I have one!! I got it from free at work, and its awesome. I made a beautiful chicken vegetable soup with it tonight, and like with everything I make in it, it was delicious! I can't believe you blogged about this. I'm telling you, I'm your soul mate and you're just denying the obvious truth. I'm getting on a plane now.
