I bought this for cooking pasta. The tall shape does work much better. It is a beautiful pot! It is well made and works with my induction unit! I have been recently purchasing Le Creuset products and I have to say that they are very high quality!

Wow! I have the pasta roller and cutter set and love making my own pasta! I really wanted to make different shapes. I've had my eye on this product for months and my husband finally approved for me to purchase one! I have only used once so far but I am in love! I made small macaroni. The pasta comes out perfectly. The most difficult part was removing the clear plastic cover. The directions do not explain how. You have to press with a lot of force on one side and flip in up. I tried forever and couldn't figure it out! It took my husband a few minutes. Everything is so well made. I do prefer that it would be all metal but it is high quality plastic. I will use this product often! I purchased this product for $153 and it was money well spent!

Being one of the 2 first Le Creuset items I have ever purchased I am now a big fan! These dishes are so beautiful (I purchased a set of 2 cherry). They are very strong and durable. I cannot wait to find many recipes to use them for! I am on a search for mini spinach quiches for my 2 lovely girls and most recipes are for much larger quantities. I have used the le cresuset ramekin and love it! I am sure these will be just as lovely!

I received one of these in Cherry. It is the first ramekin I have owned. I've been stocking up on stoneware as I love the even cooking and that it is much healthier to cook with. I used this morning for microwaving scrambled eggs and they turned out perfect! I plan on using for many more recipes when I find them!

I received these spoons as a free gift with a Chefs promotion. I love them. They are strong and work very well. I cook with mostly cast iron so it is great to have these! I have used mostly the flat spatula for cooking eggs and ground beef and spoon with holes so far for getting ravioli out of boiling water quickly.

I used one of these at my pasta cooking class a few weeks ago. I was excited because I use my Kitchenaid attachment (that I LOVE) so I was curious how this would work. It was great. I'd be perfectly content using this if I did not have a Kitchenaid stand mixer. It is very sturdy and works great. The only thing is the handle kept falling off. But I would definitely recommend this to anyone who does not have a stand mixer.
