I've been looking for one of these at a decent price for a while now!
#2
200C seems very low for a maximum oven safe temperature...

200 degrees is a VERY high temperature for cooking casseroles!!
#4
Agreed, but why would a cast iron pot be oven unsafe at 201C?

I have no idea but would be extremely surprised if it were not safe at temperatures above 200 degrees.

Maybe the handle on the lid.

Some folk use these for "no knead bread" based on the recipe in the NY times from the chap at the Sullivan street bakery. It calls for a high temperature and a cast iron pot like this. Even the expensive makes suffer above 200 as the handle is rated at 200 only.

Good price have some heat!

was wondering when Aldi were going to sell some more of these as I refuse to pay Le Creuset pricing - heat added.:)
#9
According to Amazon, Le Creuset can only withstand up to 190 degrees so this obviously isn't unusual. I just have to get round hubby now as Kitchen is almost fit to burst
#10
is 4 litres big?
#11
It's plenty big for a casserole - imagine the capacity as two of the large bottles of pepsi that are usually on offer somewhere for a quid each.

Le Creuset do one at 4.2 litres and quote "Portion size 4-5" if that helps

Exactly my point on comment #8 - they are having a laugh!
#15
have some heat!!! (but lets hope it doesnt get too hot or the handle will melt LOL)
#16
I think Tesco do their own brand but this is >£50 drops to £45 on offers.
This looks like a good deal!
#17
They didn't have any in stock in my local Aldi last night. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

I bought one, to add to my large collection of cast iron pans (Le creuset, Staub, and some from Ikea (very good ones made in France).
I bought the black one at the Aldi in Huddersfield as it came with a stainless steel knob on the lid and does not have the 200 degrees oven restriction. The orange one had a similar black plastic fitting like the Le Creuset. Note: I bought stainless steel replacements for Le Creuset on Amazon, So that restriction can be bypassed.

Quality of the Aldi casserole seems very good. The bottom is perfectly flat (I use it on induction and wood fired Aga).

A few months ago I bought a different casserole at Aldi (dark blue,low and wide like one of the 28 cm Le Creusets. Very good as well, but made by a different supplier.
#19
Bargain! Bought a black one. Very pleased, seems good quality for the money, doesn't seem any different to a le creuset to be honest
#20
Bought one ... used for first time .. and plastic knob bubbled & melted with awful smell of burnt plastic .. was only being used at 180 degrees C

Bought one 3 years ago. used it 3 times. it is now just sitting pretty in the collection.
Unfortunately it has the worst inside enamel of any pan I have ever seen. After first use it got dark and rough (not dirt!). Some thin slivers peeling off. Now I can't fry anyhing in it at all. The whole bottom enamel is useless.
I have a Le Creuset monster pan of 34 cm which after 30 years still has a workable creamy enamel inside. And the best one of the cream enamel cast iron pots and oven dishes seem to be from french brand "Le Chasseur" (amazon) very very good.
But now I stick with dark matt enameled insides such as Staub. And I have the whole collection from Ikea (made in France) with the same dark enamel as Staub. I have been using the oval large one for 8 years and it becomes better with age. Non-stick due to the build up of patina, For 15 or 20 pounds more than this useless pan. I use it for soup as it can only be used with lots of liquid.
Pity, I bought the black one and on the outside it looks very good and it had the stainless steel knob.
Perhaps I will sand away the interior enamel and do an old fashioned seasoning like with with Lodge cast iron pans. When I retire...
I did buy a very good Aldi cast iron pan once. It was made by British manufactures Denby. That one was very good! But Crrofton, no thanks!
