I got this skillet and the larger one for Christmas. I am so used to cooking in Teflon but have been making a switch over to Le Creuset for the even heating. I was concerned about stuff sticking in this pan. I will admit that there is some sticking at times (mostly when not paying attention), but it cleans much more easily than i thought it might. The Le Creuset pieces are just so wonderful for heat distribution which we were really having a problem with due to a new stovetop. They are pricey, but they will last a lifetime and boy do they look nice if left out on the stove. We get lots of compliments on all of our colorful cookware.

With our new glass surface cooktop, we could not use our old wok that allowed us to get the best heating. The new wok just wasn't cutting for my stir-fry chef of a husband. We decided to bite the pricey bullet and purchase this piece. It's great. The cast iron enables it to heat better and it's sooo much sturdier than the other options. Did I mention that it's beautiful. All of the Le Creuset products are like displaying a small piece of art or a splash of color in the kitchen. Is it worth the price??? I guess it depends on how often you stir fry. It is alot of money!!!!

GREAT PIECE

This piece is great for side dishes. I have owned a couple Le Creuset pieces for several years now, but never appreciated them until moving into our new home. Our old home had natural gas provided by the city we live in. Our new home is a country home and has liquid propane. I found the flame to burn lower and it seemed to take forever to cook. NOT with the Le Creuset items. The cast iron enables it to cook more quickly and more evenly. We now are boiling water in half the time we were in our Teflon. I was worried about sticking and, of course, there is some, but not if you are careful and the clean up is easy. I will say the Le Creuset is pricey, but we are slowly switching over and they will be pieces that last years and will probably be passed down!!

These are a must have for Le Creuset skillets. I stumbled upon these on the Chef's website and put them on my Christmas list. They are great. They are a perfect fit on the Le Creuset and other cast iron. I could see where they could be too big on stainless products like All Clad. Perhaps they could make a smaller size!!!

I cannot imagine how I ever baked things without a Kitchenaid stand mixer. I have the artisan stand mixer in red and LOVE it. Before I owned one, I always thought "oh, it couldn't be worth THAT much." Boy was I wrong. I have seen other stand mixers, but none compare to the Kitchen-aid.
I replaced a white one with the red to match my kitchen and gave the old one to my mom. NO more broken hand mixers for her when trying to mix a stiff cookie dough!!

My husband bought this casserole for me for Christmas and I LOVE it!! I have been a Le Creuset fan for a while, but had not tried any of the bake ware yet. This is a great casserole that will hold pretty much anything. Everything cooks nicely. This is a casserole that you are proud to display your food in. Gone are the days if the ugly clear 9X13 that you can't disguise!!!!
