I'm not very fond of this particular spoon. It seems to be designed more for the purpose of easily leaning it up against the side of a pot you intend to leave it in. That may have some value, but the obtuse angle at which the bowl is bent from the handle makes it extremely awkward to use to actually stir something or to even ladle food from all but the top half of a pot. And, I didn't want a ladle; I already have a couple. What I wanted was a large heat-safe spoon with which to stir the contents of a pot. The spoon I received can be purchased at a discount store for half the price.

I purchased the Le Creuset oval French oven in cassis and absolutely love the color; it is a beautiful shade of purple and of excellent workmanship. Since cast iron is very heavy and difficult for me to handle, I ordered the 3.5-quart oven, but I wish that I had gotten the next larger size since a 4-pound roast sticks to the lid. All things considered, though, it is a lovely, quality item that I would recommend.

Very functional. I like that it has the glass insert for viewing. A nicer quality than those you find in department stores. The only drawback is that the handle is quite high and creates difficulty in storing in the cupboard.

When using a skillet with non-stick coating to sear/brown meat, you simply don't get the proper results; and, I have been looking for almost a year for a small skillet, with a lid, that does NOT have non-stick coating. The cost of this pan was a little more dear than I would have liked, but I absolutely love this pan. The weight, design, and quality workmanship get high marks and it cleans nicely. All in all, it is still a better value than some of others I've seen.
