Thank you for your feedback.

Yes the handle is relatively short compared to a more standard pan, I think it'd be foolish to handle without protection when hot, another issue regarding the handle is because it is very heavy the short handle makes it harder to lift, it is ergonomically comfortable to hold but this is negated by the need for oven gloves

HelloKitty88

what's the handle like? i nearly ordered them but then saw reviews said handles too short?

I may have clicked on the wrong item, 10 inch skillet does look good so I'm going to season it again and give it a go rather than return it

Got sent the wrong item, only a single pan

Such deals go away quickly if you are not quick. I missed the dish but got the whisk. Thanks for the link (y)

(To try and make it up) Before i post the other limited stock item here it is a whisk by the same brand and seems pretty good (i have bought an extra after seeing it) as it looks resin sealed. amazon.co.uk/dp/B00BM8K4RI/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_MQ4P51VVC8MMK477WTNY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

You’re welcome (y) Yes, me too. I’ve been binge watching YouTube videos on cast iron, Le Creuset, recipes - it’s hard to stop once you start, hehe. Good luck! There’s been many discounts lately, so it should be a matter of time. Amazon usually has the largest discounts for new ones, but there are the occasional bargains on eBay, Gumtree, etc. eCookShop used to have really good discounts, but not so much lately. And Bicester Village has a Le Creuset outlet store with discounted stuff all year round (never been, but there’s some examples of discounted prices on their website).

I've just seen your message. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I actually watched videos talking about cast iron, and they mentioned some of the attributes you mentioned. The interesting thing with a le creuset is that there is enamel so it is easier to maintain. Now I just have to find a cheap one :D .

A cast iron casserole heats up really well on medium heat and retains the heat for a long time. Also, when you add cold ingredients, it remains hot and brings the temperature up again really fast. This means that cast iron is really good at searing meats and other foods. If making dishes that require a long cooking time you can save energy by using lower hob temperature settings to achieve the same heat as with higher settings and a thinner vessel. You can start a dish in the hob and then finish it in the oven (e.g. for a gratin). Enamelled cast iron has the added benefit of allowing you to cook acidic foods (e.g. tomatoes, wine) without letting taste be affected by the cooking vessel (which does happen when using raw cast iron). For people experiencing food sticking to the bottom (on a non-damaged enamel surface), I would suggest lowering the heat and deglazing. Since it is so good at heat retention, the temperature settings do not need to be as high as with other pans. The whole point of using this is searing foods and then using a liquid like wine, stock or water to deglaze and add those rich, golden flavours to the dish. It is expensive, but I find it pleasurable to cook with a Le Creuset casserole and I intend on treating it well so that I’ll never have to replace it. On the other hand, my beloved Tefal frying pans always need replacing after 3 or 4 years no matter how careful I am (low/medium heat, no metal utensils, no temperature shock from the hob to cold water on the sink). So in the long run, which is more expensive? Also, I really enjoy just staring at it And cooking and eating involve all the senses, so I’d rather pay for an expensive casserole than eat several takeaways that most of the time won’t taste as good as the food I’ll cook myself. Just an example that what is expensive for some people is worth it for others and vice-versa Also - importantly! - food tastes better! :D

I see; I thought it had to do with heat retention and would translate in better cooking. Thanks for your feedback!

I can't really see any advantage of cast iron. Occasionally it's good if you want to use it on the hob, then put in the oven as well. Otherwise they are just heavy and the non-stick is generally worse than even the cheapest nonstick pans. Maybe cast iron was worth it a few decades ago, but I think they've just been superceded.

VonShef = VonHaus = Domu brands.

Linseed oil is supposedly best. I think I used sunflower oil on mine. Haven had any issues.

wi1bert

Mine should be arriving today, what’s the best oil to season them with? (They come pre-seasoned but would like to do it anyway)

Cail.nnn

Oh will have to try them out also thanks for that
