It was love at first sight. Yeah, I know, I’m a little dramatic sometimes, but when I set my sights on these beautiful looking pans, I just had to have one (or two) for myself! They are so versatile, easy to clean and they cook food evenly, besides they are so darn pretty. I just love my new Le Creuset pans! (Hey, retail therapy never hurt anyone…. well, except my pocket)
I started my Le Creuset collection with two pans; one large frying pan and one large oval french oven pan, both red. I have been using them almost every day since I got them the week after Christmas. They were my gift to me and I am getting my money’s worth! I got them at the Le Creuset Outlet in Clinton. They had some great sales for the holidays and the prices were un-beatable, better then amazon and same as the prices you find at Marshalls and Home Goods. Trust me, I looked everywhere for months, in search of the best deal. Since the prices were on par to my local Home Goods, I thought the outlet would give me the variety that I wanted since I was looking for some specific sizes/color. (oh yeah, I also own a few Le Creuset casserole dishes that I picked up over the years at TJMaxx and Home Goods. They are so easy to clean and they were dirt cheap!)
So far, I’ve cooked Vegetarian Chili, Risotto and Beef Stew in my risotto pan and the pan has so much space, it’s great for making these hearty meals. I highly recommend that you add one of these beauties to your kitchen!
