These mini casseroles are great and a real talking point when to serve straight from the oven to your guests' own place mats.

They are robust and well made with lovely detailing, and happily go in the freezer and through the dishwasher, although I usually cook things that defeat my dishwasher and end up in the sink.

The only issue is that these are a little smaller than you expect - around 9ish cm inside at the top, and this is smaller when you see it than you imagined - and are fine for starters and desserts, but too small for a main course, except as a very stylish side.

Four stars.

I hadn't realised just how tiny this casserole was going to be (approx 10cm circumference or 4", and 4cm high without lid, just under 2"). However, in spite of its tiny size it is a very good casserole, pretty colour too, and keeps all the smells locked inside while it is cooking. This is an important point for me as I am vegetarian & do not want to smell meat & fish being cooked by others. It is an excellent size for one portion.

LE CREUSET STONEWARE 'Mini-Cocotte', with lid (aka Le Creuset's 'PETITE Casserole Dish').

COLOUR : ALMOND (aka DUNE), with BLACK knob

* Base diameter : 8 cm, flaring gently out to 9.75 cm top diameter
* Overall width : 13.5 cm wide (including handles)
* Approximate depth : 4.5 cm
* Approximate maximum capacity : 0.25L

LE CREUSET embossed.

Useful little lidded dish to serve an individual hot or cold starter/pud in or an oven-baked:

* Casserole
* Soufflé
* Cottage Pie
* Macaroni Cheese
* Chilli Mince......

...or simply dip!

♦ For more ideas, a useful book Le Creuset MINI-COCOTTE, NEW EDITION is available now offering 40 recipes using the petite 0.25L STONEWARE round casserole, with stunning colour photography throughout.

These dinky little 'pots' are really easy to use and clean up, although sometimes a short soak and a rub with a plastic brush is required for those more stubborn baked-on food remains.
I have a number in various colours and none has faded despite years of use and dishwasher cleaning.

This neat little dish comes complete with a mini booklet of multi-lingual use & care instructions for the 'Le Creuset Petite Round Casserole, in STONEWARE: 10 cm/4"/0.25L/8oz', including:

◊ 'DO NOT use on stovetop burners or any other direct heat source.
◊ Under the grill/broiler, allow a 6.5 cm gap between the rim of the dish and the heat source.
◊ DO USE oven gloves as stoneware items removed from the oven, microwave and grill will be hot.
◊ DO NOT place a frozen dish in a pre-heated oven. Place the frozen dish in a cold oven and allow the dish and the oven to heat together.

General detail:

♦ 'Suitable for use in the oven and under the grill up to 260°C/500°F
♦ Easy clean, enamelled, scratch resistant surfaces
♦ Totally hygienic cooking surface, will not absorb odours or flavours
♦ Strong and durable. Resists staining, chipping and cracking.

♦ 5 year limited guarantee'

'All items in the Le Creuset STONEWARE range are original designs. Any variations are a reflection of the unique character of the hand-crafted piece.'

ooOoo

These dishes often come up discounted, on '4 for 3' offers or on the Amazon 'Add-On Programme', and worth looking out for, IMO.

I love the colour and this is just right for one portion if you are trying to stick to a diet - like me! The little recipe book that is written for the pots is full of luscious ideas too (no, not necessarily slimming...) I bought this because my kitten broke the first blue one I was given, so had to have a replacement to make up the set of four, so beware, if dropped from a great height they can smash (handles), but think I was unlucky.

These are very small lidded casserole dishes that are slightly bigger than ramekins. They can therefore be used to cook and serve individual portions of food elegantly at the dinner table, with the added touch that the lid helps to keep things warm as well as being decorative.

I first came across these at my favourite local restaurant and have been happily turning out individual meals in them ever since.

As I have come to expect from Le Creuset, each lidded dish is well made and washes well, whether by hand or in the dishwasher.

Its very simple: Great product in a great color! Tiny and too cute.
Cook tiny meals in it, if not its great for serving desserts or starters in.
I bought it as a small Christmas gift and it was very well received!
I want one in every color :)

I bought two of these and they really look the part. So small and dinky they are easy to store and can be used to offer the perfect size individual portion. Embossed with the Le Creuset name. So far they are lasting well and have been a great hit with others. They add a little something extra to the meal and are a pleasure to use. I can;t really see any flaws, they do the trick nicely and look great. I thought they might have some in a branded box but it didn't make a difference, the box was plain but had a sticker saying what the item was. I think they look great as a set. You can actually buy them in sets but they come in sets of three different colours and I wanted them to be the same. Overall they are a top quality item that looks great, works well and is a great talking point.
