4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely to look at and delightful to use 4 July 2007
Colour Name:Satin Blue
this elegant shaped, lidded STONEWARE BEANPOT from LE CREUSET.

Approx Capacity - 3.8L
COLOUR - SATIN BLUE

Great for serving soup - the lid helps to keep the contents steamy hot, but it is an equally stunning presentation dish for a mixed vegetable rice with a knob of butter melting on top!

Complete with full care instructions.
Easy to wash up by hand, or pop in the dishwasher.

Also available in a smaller size (sold in pairs):-

0.5L

n.b. LE CREUSET STONEWARE dishes cannot be used on direct heat, and a removable sticker indicates this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bean Pot 25 Jan 2010
By Fenella
Colour Name:Cerise|Verified Purchase
I like this bean pot. The colour really cheers me up! It's a big, roomy pot and I have made a beef carbonnade in it which served seven hungry people! I have also used it to make a meal for two.

On the downside, it takes up the whole of the oven. I bought a new oven last year and specifically went for a model which had a big capacity. If you have a small oven, check that this will fit in before you buy!

Also, note that it can't be used on a hob, so I have to cook in a cast iron pot and then transfer it, which is a bit inconvenient.

On the whole though, it's lovely!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish! 13 Dec 2006
Colour Name:Granite
Lovely to look at and delightful to use this elegant shaped, lidded STONEWARE 'BEAN-POT', from LE CREUSET.

Although its official title does this 'pot' no real justice, as all sorts of things can be made in it.
Naturally, it makes a great 'cassoulet', or anything else which requires a slow cook in the oven, but it is also great for serving soup from at the dinner table, as the lid helps to keep the contents piping hot.
An equally stunning presentation dish for a 'sweetcorn, mushroom and petit pois rice', with a little knob of butter melting on top, and a dusting of black pepper.
Friends favour theirs for alcohol(!), making a VERY popular 'Sangria' in the summer months, and at Christmas - a rather potent 'Mulled Wine'!

Approx Capacity - 3.8L

Sturdily boxed, complete with full STONEWARE care/use instructions.
Easy to wash up by hand, or simply pop in the dishwasher.

Also available in:-

VOLCANIC ORANGE
ALMOND (aka DUNE)
CERISE RED (Graded Shades)
BLUE (Graded Shades)

Mix with the smaller 0.5L size (sold in pairs), e.g.:-

MATT BLACK
ALMOND (aka DUNE)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 15 Mar 2004
Colour Name:Blue
This is an excellent piece of crockery, from which you should expect top-notch culinary delights. The food takes a lot of time to prepare, but melts in your mouth. Special care is needed in maintaining the pot: no water should be allowed to linger on its surface, so it is advised that the pot be cleaned right away. Its only disadvantage is that it is large and rather unwieldy - which amounts to a breaking scare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, does the job
Ideal for oven-based one-pot meals. Large enough capacity to serve a big family. Keeps things warm for ages. Pity can't be used on the hob though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great casserole
I really like this casserole, yet I am a little disappointed I can't use it on the hob as well. I used it for roast chicken at the weekend and it washed really easily.

A very stylish and covetable cooking pot (the individual ones are wonderful too) but you can't use it on a direct heat source, ie, on a gas or electric hob. Read more
