We've used Le Creuset for many years and have both stoneware and cast iron - never had any issues or breakages with either. There's some misinformation here, so for clarity... Stoneware/ceramic = Use in oven Cast iron = Use in oven AND on the hob Doesn't really make sense to suggest that stoneware is not "proper" Le Creuset - stoneware and cast iron both serve different purposes. Both are an amazing addition to the kitchen and are both pretty much indestructible when used properly. lecreuset.co.uk/en_GB/care-and-use/cop002.html
But its not though is it... Its a CASSEROLE dish dear..... For the avoidance of doubt... IT GOES IN THE OVEN!
If you READ PROPERLY you'll see it's in a product category called OVEN & BAKEWARE. It is called a casserole because that's what it is, if it was a serving dish it would be called a serving dish. There are even comments right above your post from people confirming this.
Like you comment, but It is funny how people think getting a refund with minimum fuss is a bonus, they don't take the time element of it that should be compensated on top of the refund. Sounds like TKMAX just throw everything in the boxes, hate to see the state of the warehouse they send it from.
Insert in airfryer
Letter to refuse paying the cost of returning a faulty item - Which?
each to his or her own i know but £202 for one pot (horror) , i wont even buy a top of the range phone for this price sorry...but i'll buy the ninja foodi dual zone airfryer when it was £146 now £179 i saw on here in Dec instead but that will only happen when i convince myself it's worth it, which will not happen over-night either.
"Exact same". You're paying for a reputation, a manufacturing process, differently processed enamel, a brand, a history, specific finish, design and a well renowned aftercare service. Why go for Denby when you can buy the same thing from Alibaba.com for 28 quid? A car is a car and a holiday is a holiday. Some people pay for brands and all the rest above, some people don't/can't. Each to their own. Deals gone cold but got a few positive comments and a nice shiny pot being delivered tomorrow so can't complain (y)
You can get the exact same thing without the name for £50.00 or £60.00 Cast iron is cast iron. I have had a denby for years and years and still looks brand new, and it has taken a beating.
From experience I can tell you that this particular chips almost every time it's used and let's rust start. Also the interior catches food and burns on badly. Not very easy to clean. You definitely get what you pay for.
£155 for a pan ?? How pretentious is that . I nearly spilled my Kopi luwak coffee when I saw the price .
I already own a griddle and now you’re making me want to get a pan. These are not cheap, please stop (:I Seriously, though, I do love the charred marks and aesthetics matter when cooking/eating, but agree that it is a bit of a pain to clean and see the point regarding the searing. Thanks for sharing the info (y)
Bit sarcastic. Might be useful for someone on here.
Lol thanks for accepting its opinion. Also thanks for sharing your opinion nobody asked for. Sometimes people like things are theres no justification for it. Your experience is different to mine.
The aesthetics are just about the only advantage really IMHO, unless you're on a diet and trying to drain out fat. You really want more surface area for a steak, in order to get that maillard reaction on as much of the steak as possible. There's no need for air to circulate around meat, and those griddle marks aren't really authentic - they're just making the meat look like it was cooked on an open flame. Using a griddle not only results in inferior searing compared to a flat pan but it also basically removes the opportunity to make a pan sauce from the 'fond' once you take your steak out to rest. You're right though, personal choice. Just giving my two cents as someone who found them a bit pointless, but if you've previously owned and enjoyed it then fair play.
Fantastic as wedding presents, but for home use just get a cast iron casserole from Sainsburys or wherever for a fraction of the price (added Le Creuset knob optional). For those with real Le Creuset, don't scour the inside to clean the thing! Treat the inside enamel as gently as non-stick, and don't roughen it (which causes worse sticking). You can actually, given enough use and pot scourers, get right through the enamel coating... L-o-n-g soaking may be called for rather than impatient scouring! Le Creuset actually sell (at a quite significant price) a special cleaner that also polishes the inside to a less-sticking shine... https://www.lecreuset.co.uk/en_GB/p/cookware-cleaner/CI7103.html
Still happy with my Amazon mis-price from 5 years ago. Still can’t believe I only paid £5
Wow good deal
Good deal OP little love for le creuset on this site.....

Anyone had there pans cancelled? ordered the 28cm casserole and my pans were cancelled?
After about 3 years no problems, no issues and for me worth every penny. I do not wash it in the dishwasher. (y)
I wouldn't touch these again, they didn't last us 8 months. We bought a couple of them just over a year ago in red and just recently binned them when we visited the local tip. they are cheap for a reason, absolute garbage.
How many of those that have bad experiences with these use a dishwasher? As I've noticed none of us that rate these pans do, we all hand wash, and several have like me noted that they wait til cold too rather than throwing straight into water.
No not at all, just an observation that you really don't like Scoville, I'm not picking on you, please don't take it that way, just a lot of people like them and I also posted a Scoville deal today myself, I have had good experiences with them and I am just balancing the negative, there are products I don't like but just downvote and move along, you are entitled to your opinion as is everyone.

MasterClass MCMSCRD28 Shallow Casserole Dish with Lid, Lightweight Cast Aluminium, Black, 4 Litre / 28 cm
It's not necessarily a bad deal, just I know what people on here are like and many would have ordered without realising the size and would have come back here in a few days time to shout and moan. If that's the size pot you're looking for then it's a great deal. Thanks for posting, please don't be put off posting again :D
It IS a good deal for a single-serving ovenproof dish. (Something like 300ml capacity, I reckon.) Well spotted, and thanks for sharing! However The Range's description of "perfect for big family meals" is an absurdly silly mistake!
My first post guys 😁agreed the dimensions are small but a good price for an on item if your shopping at the range :)
I'll believe it when I see it.
Any deals on good quality stone ware/ enameled cooking pots? Thanks

What's up? Are you looking in the mirror or something?! (lol)
Sainsbury's (maybe Argos too?) have a sale on some of their cast ironware. Note the shallow pan isn't as shallow as the one they sell in a box which is still £45 but same volume of 3 litres. Images from Sainsbury's Brookwood (Woking) today.
Shut ya gob. Cheeky! (lol) (lol) (lol)
Thank you. I'll try it. It looks lovely. <3 The Aldi pans are good for the money. I got both sizes of the shallow casserole dishes. :)

They will rust if the enamel gets chipped, I know this because when we wash up ours if you don’t dry straight away rust forms on the edges of the pot and lid, but it’s not a big deal, just dry them straight after washing and then put away.
They are enamelled, inside and out. They won't ever rust.
Dear Lord these have shot up in price over the last ten years or so! Yes they are good, no they aren't as good as today's prices. If you have any Le Creuset, they will last IF you soak rather than scrub off any sticking food. This or a supermarket copycat plus £100 of change? Sadly a no-brainer, unless it is a wedding present - which may be much of their market nowadays.
Yes agreed very expensive, but they cook amazing food and last and last. We got a small one as a present when we got married and still going strong 20 years later with no damage on inside enamel, which you can’t say for our cheaper Sainsbury’s cast iron casserole dish, which has cracking and hazing on inside
very happy with the set from Aldi,sold out online but may still be instore. Quality is excellent for the price £55 for a set of 3. Link
