Le Creuset Braiser
Le Creuset Braiser is such a joy to cook with. I love the classic orange, Volcanic color (I believe, it is now called Flame in the US anyway) the most because I grew up with that color.
That Volcanic orange Dutch oven was always on the stove and my mother made something delicious in it pretty much every night. Used according to Le Creusets care and use recommendations this pan will last decades. Nowadays I also love the Cerise, Nectar and Cayenne colors for my kitchen. Over the years Le Creuset introduced more and more colors. Now there is a color to suit every cooks taste and kitchen.
Besides being beautiful to look at, Le Creuset has a perfectly smooth surface which is ideal for most no oil (oil-free) cooking. Le Creuset braiser does well for an assortment of dishes, chilis, curries, paellas and any kind of saucy dish. Its also fun to see the color change when you cook with it; it gets darker and deeper when it heats up. Be sure to review Le Creuset’s care and use suggestions in the handbook that came with your pan or on their website at https://www.lecreuset.com/care-and-use.html
The 5 qt (3.2L) Le Creuset Braiser pictured above is what was used to demonstrate the Chile Bean Chili recipe and technique. To give you an idea of size, the 5 quart holds up to about 7 cans (8–9 cups) of beans plus all the other ingredients comfortably.
