Le Creuset. Enameled cast iron anything is a joy to cook with given the great characteristics of cast iron minus the sticking to or seasoning of the pot or pan. But Le Creuset is a brand that has unbeatable quality at a reasonable price. Why do I say that, you ask? Because of three reliable traits.
Le Creuset enameled cast iron does not chip ever. It also does not stain and it especially does not stick to anything. The non-stick enameled helps cleaning time significantly. Because it is cast iron, the pot or pan can get pretty heavy. But since these pots can be used similar to a crock pot that holds a temperature for a long time, you are not supposed to move it very much. Just the first time putting it on the stove while it is empty is not hard at all. Typical crock pot meals include Jambalaya, Chili, any kind of meat roast (with or without veggies), and soup.
Enameled cast iron cookware is kind of costly. I have found that Le Creuset is the most reasonable priced cast iron brands on the market today. Don't get me wrong, it is still priced pretty high, but much less than its competitors. This makes it much easier for the average consumer to purchase commercial grade cookware.
No one really wants ugly cookware. Le Creuset completely agrees. That is why they offer many colors to pick from for all their enameled cast iron products. They have basic colors like blue and red (cherry). Then there are cool colors like Flame, Dune and Black Onyx. So whatever decor you have in your kitchen, you are sure to find a Le Creuset pot or pan to match it.
There are many enameled cast iron manufacturers out there now. They are all taking their once commercial/professional products and selling them to average Joes like you and me. Le Creuset is no different in that aspect. What sets them apart are their reasonable cost, non-stick/non-scratch products and large variety of fun colors. I absolutely recommend "stocking" up right now.
