Le Creuset Heritage Cast-Iron Cocotte

Patterned after vintage designs found in Le Creuset's archives, the Heritage collection re-creates the enameled cast-iron cookware that Chuck Williams brought over from France over half a century ago. These cocottes are optimized to provide steady, even heat for cooking and serving everything from slow-cooked pot au feu to braised meats and hearty casseroles. Beloved by generations of chefs, the pieces offer flawless performance and stove-to-table versatility. Heavyweight cast-iron construction distributes heat slowly and evenly for uniform cooking and optimal browning. Sand-colored enamel interior resists staining and chipping and makes it easy to monitor food while cooking for less sticking and burning. Heavy, tight-fitting lid seals in moisture so foods emerge tender and juicy. Oven-to-table cocotte help keep foods warm for serving. Dishwasher safe for fast, convenient cleanup. Made in France.

Good, but...
November 28, 2014
Le Creuset gets promoted on all sorts of cooking shows. I gather this is because the off-white interior enamel shows well on the camera.
I've had a number of cocottes from Le Creuset and have switched to Staub (which has black more-than enamel interior). It has no surfaces that rust; the unenameled surfaces of Le Creuset do. You must be careful to store it dry and with paper towels between the lid and the pot. I do this for all my cookware, but still. It's also not stain resistant; the enamel stains. I gather you can try some milk method to restore it but it never worked for me. The one Le Creuset I still have (the others chipped and stained too much) which I admit to having for 20 years is still useful. But I had to replace the chipped and broken black bakilite knob with an optional stainless steel one. I don't understand why it's not shipped standard that way - as Staub cocottes are. Note: none of my pots go in the dishwasher, but they get heavy use.
Pros: Color, Weight
Cons: Difficult to Clean, High-Maintenance, Fragile

Why isn't Cocotte an everyday word?
July 31, 2014
We've had this Cocotte for years and never seem to run out of new ways to use it. Their Dutch ovens are, of course, fantastic, but this odd-shaped pan may just get as much use, mostly because its integrated handle means it doesn't have the same temperature restrictions of anything with the black phenolic one. Casseroles, side dishes and even desserts have all turned out beautifully and stay toasty warm at the table.

True to Le Creuset
July 26, 2014
Was already sold on Le Creuset quality and performance. What I was really looking for was the heritage styling and price. I use the heritage skillet with the wooden handle even more often. Love them both.
Pros: Quality, Versatile, Design, performance

Makes a statement on the table
So pretty in person & looks gorgeous on the table or at a buffet. Love that it's cast iron. Keeps food hot long after removal from oven. So many great uses for this piece.
