Nothing says "I love you" like pot roast! Or perhaps Boeuf Bourguignon, or Chicken with Dumplings, even Lobster Bisque? We know there's a strong connection between the stomach and the heart, so cook your sweetheart's favorite dish for that special day. This aptly-designed pot will not only do a great job cooking the feast, it makes a brilliant presentation, and adds a cheery note to your kitchen anytime of year.
Beautiful enough to bring to the table and durable enough to outlive its 101-year warranty against defects, this heavy, 2-1/4-quart casserole is shaped like an orange pumpkin, perfect for preparing and ceremoniously serving a vegetable stew or other festive dish. Suitable for the oven or for browning meat and sweating vegetables on gas, electric, induction, or ceramic ranges, and delightful to behold on the countertop when not in use, the casserole is made of cast-iron and clad inside and out in Le Creuset's famous bright enamel, which won't absorb odors or flavors and readily scrubs clean. As cast-iron is unexcelled for heat distribution and retention, the casserole cooks foods evenly and gently without hot spots. The knob on its heavy, tight-fitting lid is ovenproof to 450 degrees F. Handles facilitate carrying, and the casserole is dishwasher-safe. Like all of Le Creuset's renowned cookware and bakeware, it's made in France. --Fred Brack
