I have one small Emile Henry Flame pot which I ADORE, and really wanted to try more. This set is truly FANTABULOUS!!!! The flame piece is basically a SKILLET, which makes this apparently very specialized piece of cookware amazingly VERSATILE, as you can use it for anything you would use a skillet for - except you can microwave it, put it in the dishwasher, and in the fridge. Clean up is a breeze.
I got the red tarte tatin set, and the pan does turn a burgundy color when heated (which I have never seen in my other EH flame pot, which is black), which is normal and really fun to watch, but it goes back to normal once cooled. The pan is is scratch resistant, much lighter than our cast iron skillet, and cooked eggs to perfection! I can't wait to braise meat, make quiche, and well, tarte tatin in it! Among many other things, I am sure. Oh yeah, and I (a rather unremarkable cook until very recently) can make some pretty tricky pan sauces from roux on my other EH Flame, so I am sure this one will be great for that too. Just so you know, the accompanying flat dish is NOT stovetop safe, although it may be oven safe - I am not sure, so I suppose I'll be emailing EH to ask about that one.
TIP: As with anything involving boiling milk, seasoning the pan with milk requires a very watchful eye. I think the rice and water method of initial seasoning is much easier.
