Very impressed Review by Meagan
Ordered this for my wife for Christmas. She was absolutely thrilled and just the other night got a chance to make us a braised chicken dish on the stovetop. The food turned out great, and she loved cooking with it. I got the flame color as it seems to be the most iconic, and the picture shows it pretty accurately. It is bright and beautiful in person.
Obviously Le Creuset cookware is not cheap but I was able to look over the piece very closely and from what I can tell the quality is fantastic. I am glad to pay for good quality, provided it lasts for a long time. All indications point to this dutch oven being a lifetime piece. (Posted on 4/27/16)
