This is the best chicken cooker I could find. Cleanup is easier than the metal ones, and the chicken....oh, my! I use a stout beer which adds more flavor, but it does not taste like beer. The meat is so tender and moist...when I cut up the chicken, the juice just runs out from under the skin. Be sure to let the chicken rest for 15 minutes after baking, covered with foil, so those juices get maximized into the meat. You will love this cooker! I have not tried putting vegetables around the chicken, so cannot speak to that. But the chicken is the best I have ever had!

These are good bottles.
I mistakenly thought that they came with little sealing caps for the spouts. They have a little ridge where a cap should go, so that was disappointing. Other than that, they work well for any sauce or dressing.

These storage containers are great for 5 lbs of flour or 4 lbs of pure cane sugar. They take up minimal space for the amount that they hold, so I'm not digging in the back of the shelf anymore. They sit side by side in the front, along with a smaller one for the powdered sugar. They open with one hand, and have a built in piece for leveling off the measuring cup. Highly recommend. I wish I'd had these years ago.

Although I at first had my doubts about this product, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it works.
I cooked a pot of gluten-free pasta, and it took care of the boil-over problem with ease. It does not leak out around the connection with the pot. Can't wait to try it with rice, which is always a constant-watch problem for me. I have an electric stove, so cannot turn down the flame immediately. Just put the lid in the top rack of the dishwasher to clean. Highly recommend this product!

I had inherited a blue enamel stock pot decades ago, and have been using it ever since to cook pasta. It always stuck to the bottom. I saw this one, and since I am a Le Creuset fan, I decided to give this one a try. No more sticking, and a controllable boil! It is a wonderful addition to my other Le Creuset pieces, and now I use it for smaller batches of soup, vegetables, and potatoes besides every kind of pasta. Good cookware like this is a pure joy to use.

I've never had a pot that simmered like this one simmers. And because it maintains it's temperature longer, I can cook at a lower heat. It sautes chopped vegetables for soup or whatever without browning them, something it is difficult to do in my other pots. I also bought a bottle of the Le Creuset cleaner, and have found it to be needed and easy to use, with great results. This pot is a handsome red addition to the pantry shelf.

i have been looking at these French ovens by Le Creuset for a long time, so finally bought one with my Christmas money. Made a big batch of homemade chicken soup, and loved the way it sauteed the vegetables first, then simmered and not boiled. I ordered the 9 quart for smaller batches of things, and cleared lots of space in my kitchen bookshelf unit, getting rid of all those cookbooks I don't need, and now I can enjoy them every day. Yes they are heavy...I just have to change how I do things a little bit. I know you've been looking at them, too. You know you want one.
