There are some things in life that are worth paying extra for, and a Le Creuset casserole is certainly one of them. If you go for cheaper options it is likely a false economy anyway as they'll need replacing far more regularly. I have owned a Le Creuset Cast Iron 30cm Round Casserole, Volcanic for seven or eight years, which is exactly the same colour and material as this smaller version. That particular well-used casserole is in as good condition now as it was when I first purchased it and I'm sure this one will be equally long-lasting. Le Creuset even provide a lifetime guarantee which "covers faulty workmanship and materials when the product is used in normal domestic household conditions and in accordance with the care and use instructions provided". As well as the obvious use in the oven, you can use this with all heat sources. The usage guide lists ceramic, induction, electric, gas and radiant ring. I have used this to braise meat or partially cook vegetables on the hob before cooking in the oven many times, and although it takes a while to heat up being cast iron, the casserole is perfectly suited to this. You could even use it as a deep frying pan without the lid if you so wished.

The one thing to be aware of with this particular casserole is that it comes from the "cocotte bis" range. This bistro range of casseroles is not going to be big enough to cook meals for a family of six. It is of course 22cm in diameter, but only approximately 8cm deep. The stated capacity of this casserole is 2.6 litres. This is compared to 8.4 litres for the full size 30cm casserole I also have, so be aware of this size limitation before buying!

Firstly, my two stars are harsh. I love Le Creuset. I am not giving the brand 2 stars. I am giving the seller Le Creuset UK Ltd. I bought this item on a Lightning Deal and it is very misleading.

I have 4 Le Creuset casseroles and this is the most shallow. They are pawning off shallow "bistro bis" casseroles as proper 22cm, normal height casseroles. However, this item does not exist on the Le Creuset UK Ltd. website. There are standard height casseroles as well as oval and shallow. This is NONE of those. They don't even make a 22cm in oval or shallow. So, by deduction, it would have to be the standard casserole. However, it isn't. It's much shallower and the shape is different. I've never heard of the "bistro bis" range and a Google search yields almost no results. Not good!

It's false advertising and should not be allowed. The dimensions should be listed clearly on the description with an explanation that this is a shallower version of their normal casserole. Telling us it's a "more convenient size" as it does in the description is not enough. The 22cm Le Creuset sold by Le Creuset on Amazon states the dimensions clearly. Why not the products Le Creuset UK Ltd. sells??

My gut tells me this is something Le Creuset made at one point and does not make and probably did not sell many judging by the lack of Google images. This model belongs in the discount stores and outlets, not on Amazon masquerading as a proper 22cm Le Creuset casserole.

I welcome the seller's explanation though as I don't have one. This is going back to Amazon for a refund so I can buy the proper 22cm in the proper height.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 17 May 2014

I already have a le creuset casserole which I paid less for and is much bigger than this. This is much smaller than expected and I really should have got a ruler out to check the size! My fault so I'll have to keep it for when I only need a 2-3 portion casserole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Le Creuset never dissappoints 4 April 2014

After buying this item I read the reviews and some of them said that it is smaller than they thought, but that's not true!
This is perfect to cook for 3-4 people, just what I was looking for.
