Review and Buying Guide of Le Creuset Cast Iron Saucepan Set

Exceptional high-quality, incredibly easy to prepare dinner with, quite superior warmth distribution means anything cooks evenly and really uncomplicated to thoroughly clean. Delivery and packaging were being seriously fantastic.

Immediately after thirty decades – time for the very same again. As a wedding current, nearly 30 years back we were given a set of these pans. Ultimately the screw threads on the inside of of the handles went because we held unscrewing and screwing back on the wooden handles to allow for us to set them as a result of the dishwasher. We then changed with an costly set of non-adhere pans (costing roughly the exact as these) and i have regretted this decsion time following time. Now, new le crueset pans have arrived and i’m satisfied again. There have been modifications in excess of the past 30 years: – they now have heat resistant plastic handles which are okay for very low oven temperatures and, extra importantly, alright for the dishwasher a major improvement on the aged wooden handles – alternatively of the spout, they now have ‘lips’ to make pouring attainable. The variance getting the spout was on a person aspect, the lips are on the two sides, producing the pans acceptable for pouring when holding in either still left of suitable hand (as an alternative of only remaining able to pour when holding in your suitable hand) – the lids now have a steam vent gap needed as earlier the spout had supplied this function – they now have a life time assure, despite the fact that if they final 30 yrs, the life span of the pans and my life time are possibly a ‘dead’ heat :-) – there is a handle (in fact a huge stub) reverse the tackle permitting them to be lifted employing two arms, although you will require oven gloves to maintain this steel stub. So, in general, fantastic high quality which really should last my lifetime and with many enhancements more than the past three many years. Remarkably recommended – you will by no means regret acquiring these.Here are the specifications for the Le Creuset Cast Iron Saucepan Set:

    The perfect cast iron pans & cookware. The most fantastic pans ever. Even if you are the worst cook in the world, these pans/cookware make your coking look and taste good and they will inspire you to actually cook and try new recipes. I’ve just ordered the le creuset cast iron saucepan set in cerise and can’t wait for them to arrive. My first buy of le creuset was over 30 yrs ago when i had an aga oven installed (the most perfect pans for an aga btw). I still have the pan set from that time and still use them daily, but moving to a new home with an top of the range induction hob in the kitchen, i have decided to update and buy the 3 piece cerise set, which will marry well with the existing set that i already have. I have abs no doubts or reservations in recommending this range of cast iron cookware, i know the price is high and they are a considered purchase but i can honestly say they are worth every penny and will last a lifetime and they are such a joy to use. Just think how many cheaper sets of pans you buy in a lifetime and total the cost up, with le creuset one set that’s it (you just add to your collection when you can). The washing up is more or less non existent if you use the pans on a medium low heat on the hob and the oven they just require a gentle wash when finished with, if there is a stubborn mark, then just a soak in warm soapy water and voila the stains are gone, i personally don’t put my pans in the dishwasher, you don’t need to with le creuset (although they are dishwasher safe). Its so true you get what you pay for.

    Perfect pans for lovers of real food and traditional cooking. These pans have ushered in a new age of cooking in my kitchen. Goodbye rubbish non-stick surfaces, hello to cast iron brilliance. Okay, let’s get this out of the way. If you have small hands and weak wrists, these might not be for you. But if you can hold them and not fear dropping them, they’re amazing. The big advantage to cast iron cookware is that they retain heat and distribute it evenly. This means you can cook on lower temperatures than you otherwise would, and you can rely on your food to get cooked through perfectly. Onions caramelize beautifully, meats sear with a crisp outer surface, and sauces thicken to a gooey syrup. If you really love food, you will love these pans.

    Excellent quality, very easy to cook with, very good heat distribution means everything cooks evenly and very easy to clean. Delivery and packaging were really good.

      I expected these to be slow to heat up and for things to stick. However i have been pleasantly surprised. Most stuff cooks very well in them (white sauce, mince) but my pasta did stick to the bottom. Will have to find another way (maybe having the water boiling before adding the pasta) to ensure this does not happen. Cleaning in hot soapy water is a dream and the contents just come off with a cloth.

    Love these pans, save on energy , worth the money as will last for years, very sturdy and does the job. However a little heavy if you have arthritis, but. Still worth the cost, came very well packed, highly recommend them.

      Lifetime quality and a good investment. Having had several sets of pans including stainless steel, non-stick, ikea, russell hobbs etc. – and having had all of the pans fail at some point, sometimes within just a couple of months – tesco (no) value, despite following care instructions supplied, i decided it was time to invest in some ‘proper pans’. Yes, these are expensive but they are worth it.Excellent heat distribution, actual non-stick surfaces, robust and resilient, these pans will definitely last you a lifetime, and if not, they come with a guarantee to ensure they will. Think about the number of times you’ve had to replace your pans, and you’ll find they’re excellent value for money and a definite investment. My only criticism would be the weight. Even the smallest of the 3 pans is heavy as they are made of cast iron. That said, i have also added a le creuset casserole dish to my collection and plan to expand it further with some more quality le creuset cookware.

        Always wanted a set of these. Plus side is they cook very quickly, cooking vegetables bring to the boil and turn off and they continue cooking saving fuel the down side they are very heavy and would not be suitable for anyone with weak wrists.
