Pros: Gorgeous, Great results, I'll be able to pass this pot down to the next generation of a great home cook
Cons: Very heavy, unwelding, may need some TLC from time to time
Some years back, my husband gave me my dream pot, le Creuset.

A 5 1/2 Quart Round French Oven in Dune.

I carefully read the enclosed information; cleaned the pot and it went into to service.  After the first month or so, I could not get the bottom completely clean, not all foods were releasing.  I sent the pot back to the manufacturer and they gladly replaced it, with no postage charges! 

The first meal that I prepared in my replacement was a roast, and once again, I could not get that thing clean.  So I took a deep breath, looked in my cabinet of cleaning supplies and tried the cream I use to clean my glass top stove.  Voilà!

Not so long ago I made a Pork Roast in my le Creuset, and the lid got really discolored.  I pulled out my non-scratch cleaning pad and my cleansing cream, applied some elbow grease, done!

I was about to give up on this brand altogether.  Now I use that honey alot more often.

Pros: Heavy weight, even cooking, pretty
Cons: The enamel discolors
I bought one of these just for making osso buco.  I found myself using it for a lot more than just that.  I make tomato sauce in it, chili, any excuse I have to bust it out, I do.  I absolutely love this pot.

Pros: Even heat, looks great from oven to table, just a great braising pot
Cons: heavy
I'm lucky to have 2 Le Creuset pots.  The red 5 1/2 quart round was a gift from my husband and the smaller yellow 3 quart round I bought myself.  Yes, they are pricey, but it is the type cookware that I will be able to pass down to a niece or nephew one day.

It is a main stay for me during the winter months for braising, roasting and entertaining.

Comments

I wanted to add to this review that I posted some time back.
I also use my Le Creuset for baking bread, FABULOUS!
As to the "magic cream"... any cream cleanser you use 
for cleaning glasstop electric cook surfaces.
Works like a charm, every time.
