A la Le Creuset
I’m so excited to be writing this review! As you guys know, we’ve moved house and I had to get used to cooking on a gas stove top. I’ve had these cheap pots since Rory and I started dating and they’ve lasted me this long, they did really well considering.
With gas though, because they’re stainless steel, they heat up too quickly, food starts burning if you look away for a second, and I’m not one of those people that love to babysit their food while it’s cooking. So, after a cooking class a couple of months ago, the chef suggested going cast iron with Le Creuset as a better option for cooking on gas. As you know, they cost a fortune!
My goal was to buy them one at a time, the lady at the store told me that’s what most people do anyway. On Saturday I went with Rory, I just couldn’t pick a colour on my own 🙂 Out we walked with three, my husband thinks you just have to do things properly, I’m so spoilt!
Finally, the reason I’m writing this. So far so good, I’ve used all three pots. The cast iron is quite heavy to use, but the heat is evenly distributed so the pot doesn’t heat up on the sides as well. Also, because of the thickness, you are able to cook at lower temperatures. I think the only negative so far is that the handles heat up, so having to use oven gloves to hold the pot is a bit annoying. Unless I’ve had the flame up to high..The non stick frying pan, is amazing to use, it’s actually nonstick. We’ll see how long that lasts, but it’s awesome right now.
All in all, I’m very happy with the decision to go cast iron! Plus they look gorgeous 🙂
