I am building up my Le Creuset collection and was looking for some a new casserole dish, so this one with a griddle/grill was a great bargain. The casserole dish alone cost £115 on Amazon, and over £130 elsewhere. Available in black or the original orange.

I expect Le Creuset are bought by people who drive Mercedes. Even at this price.

No! I think Le Creuset are bought by people with very very very stong arm muscles!! Try lifting a caserole pan with food in - just ain't gonna happen in my house!!

I drive a Seat and a Vauxhall.....it is good quality stuff and I love cooking with it. Not to everyone's taste and pocket I admit, but for someone looking to extend their collection, it might be helpful.

I can't afford one at the moment, but it is a good deal for the type and size of casserole.

I have a fair few that I asked for as wedding pressies, and they're fab!

These are the kind of thing that people hand down to their kids when they die - they last forever, and do the job really well.

As does the stuff from Aldi... at prices as low as 25% of Le Creuset.
Even at that price I am not a fan of it though, bought some in France in the 1980s and I simply didn't like it so gave it away (the coating on the interior was ruined and stained after a few uss though)

It is made of the same stuff that has lasted since the Industrial Revolution in bridges and machinery, simply because it is cast iron, why wouldn't it last generations!?

I have both types, my Aldi ones have tarnished and chipped on the outer pretty quickly. I would always prefer the Le Creuset if I had the money to spend on it

Not really sure why this is so cold, for the casserole dish alone it is £20 cheaper than Amazon, and IN ADDITION you get a grill pan which can retail for between £50-£70. I know this is out of some peoples price range, but surely that is no reason to vote cold?

You are missing the point, it's a bit like Apple computers, the benefits are few and much over stated!
Even cheap, they simply aren't very good to use, for one they are so heavy many women find them impossible to manage, even most men find them heavy. They look awful before very long, unless you are obsessive keeping them mark free and it's no bargain when a cast iron griddle pan (the one cast iron item that is genuinely useful) is about 7 quid in IKEA, which in my case has so far lasted about 20 years without the slightest damage, and will undoubtedly see me out!

Can't please everyone I suppose. Judging by the heat on this, can't please anyone!
#11
Do they break if you drop them? Cast iron can do that cant it?
#12
I have the ones by Chasseur and use them all the time (got them from TK Maxx for silly discount price and I am definitely not big and muscle'y LOL) I wasn't sure what to expect but was told by a friend to only use on low heat as the cast iron is a good conductor when cooking and high heat will turn the inside brown. I have had them for years and they have not discoloured or have any apparent damage. I have a gas hob and hand wash only but they are really easy to keep clean. My friend has the Le Creuset and bought in France several years ago as cheapest way (still a lot more than I paid) and hers look great (orange/red)! Hope that helps someone :3

I have a set of these saucepans I picked up at a car boot practically new - I don't see what the fuss is about with Le Creuset, personally I think they are very over rated. Recently bought a set of 4 Circulon non stick ones from TKmaxx for £40 (usually around £100-£150) and they boil almost 50% quicker than the Le Creuset ones (saving 50% on gas), then there's the weight issue they are quite heavy.
