    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.

    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.

    So what was the magic cleansing cream that you used?

    Can the Phenolic knob go into the oven? I have the Le Creuset Dutch Oven, and suspected is could go into the oven, but have been afraid to try.
