I absolutely love my Le Creuset dutch oven.
"LeCreuset was founded in 1925 in France by two Belgian industrialists - Armand Desaegher (a casting specialist) and Octave Aubecq (an enameling specialist). The pair introduced the signature Le Creuset round cocotte (French/Dutch Oven) soon after; the cocotte remains the company's most popular cookware piece to this day.
In 1934 Le Creuset introduced the signature Flame (orange) colored enamel on its cast iron cookware items."
I was first attracted to the great colors available (big surprise), then I found out how wonderful they are to cook with. Everything just tastes better!
I have a 5 1/2 quart dutch oven in Caribbean that I leave on my stove top ready to go. This is a great size for a family of four.
We also have a 7 1/4 quart dutch oven in kiwi. Since my husband loves to cook for our family gatherings, this large size gets plenty of use.
New colors are always being added-purple is the newest.
The price for the 5 1/2 quart dutch oven is around $250, and yes it's worth every penny. All you really need is one, and with proper care it will be enjoyed by future generations.
