Great size - very usable

I love LeCreuset and this is a handy size. However, I'm disappointed that there seems to be no consistency in design. This has a totally different style lid than the others that I own. (And all the others were purchased in the last 2 months). I know this is perhaps a minor point BUT when we're paying so much for cookware, we'd like it to at least MATCH with all the other pieces in the line.

I can tell it's going to saved some sliced fingers! It really gives nice, even flakes of herbs and it's not that hard to clean either.

Haven't used them for very long, though. So far so good. I like that they're big and that it's easy to segregate colorwise for various foods.

Does just what it says it will do

I already love the cookware becaue it cleans so easily, but occasionally there is a small 'burn' or stain on the bottom and this stuff takes care of it quickly. I'd also had the inside of a pan stain from soaking and cooking black beans, and again, just a quick swipe and rinse with this, and all was good again. My question is, can it be used on the stoneware? I baked in one of the dishes last night and it took nothing short of a jackhammer to get rid of some baked on splatters.

I bought one of the sets and while the 1 1/4 qt saucepan was good, this is better for us. Since there are just two of us, I need more small pieces and fewer large pieces and this is a great size. Just wish it were in the set I purchased.

And the size is perfect for the two of us. I also have the square set and found I wasn't using it as much simply because they're very big. For just two of us, the rectangular set is good and I'm considering buying another of those.

I actually bought this to use in conjunction with the Raymond Francis 'book because he recommends uncooked whole grains as much as possible. So you put your grains (oat groats, brown rice, that kind of thing) in, add boiling water, close it up at night, and then in the morning, it's breakfast. So far, I'm very happy with it. Cleans easily, stores easily and does what it's supposed to do. It was not advertised to keep things hot all that long, and it really just barely keeps it warm for 5 hours - not hot.

I didn't think I'd use the small one, but as it turns out, I've already used it twice for baking fish and seafood. They clean easily and are easy to handle. I can't say enough good stuff about ALL Le Creuset!

Would love it in Caribbean but alas, it wasn't available. However, I'm still pleased. I had originally purchased it to avoid scratching my Le Creuset cookware but find I'm using it for other things as well.
It's a bit pricey so I'm glad I can use it for other things.
