Le Creuset 9 1/2 quart French Oven
This is a serious multi-tasker. I can boil pasta, build sauces and soups, cook beans and lentils, or stew baby artichokes in it. Because of the cast iron core, it holds steady, even heat and the porcelain enamel coating makes clean-up ridiculously easy. Plus, the brilliant red really brightens up my tiny kitchen. Mine is fire engine red.
Do you and your family a favor and make hearty stews and braised dinners to last them through the winter. A Le Creuset dutch oven actually makes cooking a pleasure.
After more than 45 years of producing extraordinary pots and pans from copper, the Ruffoni family is channeling its artistry and craftsmanship into clad stainless-steel cookware of the same exceptional quality.
