My Newest Addition to the Kitchen

I bought one of these last night on sale - almost 1/3 off of the list price. I could have purchased the mocha version of this Dutch oven (Le Creuset calls them 'French ovens') for a pittance, but I didn't want to have an ugly brown pot sitting on top of my stove. I figured that the 7 1/4 quart version should be big enough to handle almost any cooking task that I would attempt in my smallish kitchen.

I think that the first dish that I will make in the Dutch oven is one that my sweetie has requested: Braised Short Ribs with Chocolate and Rosemary.

Hi Loren! I agree those red Le Creuset cooking pots are beautiful, but the brown ones are not. When they make one in lilac, pink or sky-blue, I'll be buying ...

Hi Charlotte,

I really like the red dutch ovens too. I was very happy that they were running a special sale on all red items at the Le Creuset outlet store in celebration of Valentine's Day.
