Love it! Another fabulous addition to my kitchen.
on 10 July 2012
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)
