    I have both the 26cm and 30 cm shallow casserole dishes. As you would expect from Le Creuset, they are easy to use on both the hob and in the oven (or both, depending on the recipe you use them for). As you would also expect of cast iron (enamelled interior), they are also fairly weighty when full.

    The 26cm casserole is just about the right size to comfortably prepare a meal for two without the contents being in danger of spilling out if stirred on the hob. The 30cm is large enough to comfortably hold a meal for four. The 26cm fits nicely inside the 30cm, sitting on the lid of the former and thus the pair do not use up an awful lot of cupboard space, which is always a boon.

    Cleaning is a breeze, they come up like new in the dishwasher or when washed by hand.

    Mine both had sticky labels on the base; I mention this only because I remembered to remove one but not the second - the smoke alarm and a smell of chemical burning alerted me to my omission when the dish in question was otherwise happily cooking on the hob. Oops! Anyway, even the burnt label came off cleanly, so no harm done.

    I actually bought this casserole dish in a Le Creuset Outlet Store but had to tell Amazon customers how wonderful it is.
    You need to take a little time to bring it to temperature but after that the world is your oyster. I've used it to fry, stir fry, stew etc etc, even make top crust pies, make the filling in the dish then chucking on a pastry lid. Once hot it keeps the heat for ages so is economical as a lower hob/ oven temperature will keep it at a working level. One tip I generally make my casseroles for consumption the following day (better flavour) if I need to reheat straight from the fridge I put the the casserole in the unheated oven then bring to working heat, the enamel will love you for it. I calculate my cooking time from when the oven reaches temp. as normal. I own just two Le creuset casseroles, one of which I've had for almost 20 years, and they are by far the most used of all my pots and pans.

    Wish I had invested in Le Creuset years ago as they are the best cooking pots around. I now have a selection and although I own stainless steel too, my loyalty remains with Le Creuset. The shallow buffet is extremely versatile, it has more depth than a frying pan and can be used in the oven as well as on top. I even found it great for slow cooking and it holds a fair amount of food and with the frying pan of the same size, you will find the buffet lid fits perfectly. A great buy, and a good price at the time I bought it. Like that one useful knife in the kitchen it is used daily. I would certainly recommend this item and it's good looking too!

    Size 26 cm
    Approximate capacity : 2L
    MATERIAL : CAST IRON
    COLOUR - ALMOND

    An old favourite of mine, the shallow, wide base of this particular casserole allows the maximum contact between food and heat. This resultant even heat retention enables cooking efficiency at low or medium temperatures, helping to conserve energy and keep fuel bills lower....very important in the current climate!

    Suitable for any hob-top or pop it in the oven...even under the grill to brown off. Well designed lifting handles, but don't forget your oven gloves.
    Relatively easy to wash up by hand although it can require a bit of soaking and a rub with a plastic brush, for those more stubborn cooked-on food remains.
    Dishwasher safe.

    If you are looking for inspiration, Sue Cutts, has a chapter dedicated to the SHALLOW CASSEROLES in her book entitled, The Cast Iron Way to Cook, and my current favourite is:

    'Poached Fruits in Orange Syrup', from page 35, which makes full use of this super dish in its 'cook-and-serve' role!

    Also available in a NEW SMALLER 22 cm size, along with a larger 30cm/3.2L size

    Where do I start with this little beauty.

    I have seen this being used by so many TV chefs and it always looked stylish, as well as versatile and generally very useful.

    It is all of the above. I absolutely love it. It is brilliant for starting cooking on the hob, then moving to an oven, and even ending up on the table. It's that beautiful.

    These pots are absolutely brilliant - I have had mine for years and it is used every week. Bought this smaller one for my sister-in-law. If you are a family, go for the bigger one.
    Expensive, but well worth it. Mine is 7 years old and still going strong!

    I love Le Crueset. Above all I think it is a safer way to cook. However very heavy and I need help to move when cooking. Not so good if you have very week hands.

    I have several Le Creuset items but didn't have the Le Creuset Cast Iron shallow casserole. I've owned a Cirulon paella pan for 11 years which cost me around a hundred pounds back then. It has been worth every penny but after 11 years hard labour in my kitchen it was ready to bin it and replace it. I did consider buying the exact same model which is still on sale today but decided instead to replace it with this Le Creuset Shallow Casserole. Its very similar in shape and size and holds roughly the same amount of food. But, this is a nicer colour (my circulon paella pan was black with a stainless steel lid) this almond colour is simply stunning and to me its a lot more attractive.

    I love Le Creuset cookware as its top quality, looks good, performs effortlessly and lasts and lasts, as long as you don't drop it (cast iron is very heavy, so you need strong arms to lift this when it is full) and it washes up so easily.

    My shallow casserole arrived this afternoon and I made dinner in it tonight. The flavour was awesome! and as the lids are so tight fitting and the cast iron distributes heat so well, I cooked our dinner on a very low heat which is of course, energy efficient.

    I can find nothing at all negative about this, I love it already and it will be used almost daily in my house. An excellent investment for a serious cook and I trust you will be as delighted as I am with it.

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND! (I would not swap this for the circulon one I threw away this morning)
