Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Stockpot – A Pot for All Seasons

I posted this review of the Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Stockpot over at Gracie’s Product Review some time ago but wanted to re-post it here.  This is a great pot that will serve you well.  I have owned mine (pictured here) for over 10 years and I cannot ever see myself using anything else.

Here is a quick updated review of my go to pot for everything from soup to sauce.  It’s the Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Stockpot. (re-posted)

I have the 8 quart model but it also come in a 6 quart version and many different vibrant colors.  I chose the cherry color show in the picture above.  We are at that time of year when a good stock pot is a necessity.  Between soups, stocks, sauces and a whole lot of other things a quality stockpot is worth the money.

10 years ago when I decided it was time for a new pot my search ended when I stumbled upon the Le Creuset shown above.  I was ready to spend a lot more money on a stainless steel, no stick pot, when an ad from Chefs catalog caught my eye.

I cannot begin to tell you how happy I have been with this purchase.  Easy to clean, light weight and attractive, in addition to never having to worry about anything sticking to the bottom.  If you in the market for a new pot, don’t waste you money on anything else.
