What can I say, I'm a big fan of their french ovens.
Vive la France!
Indeed, worth every penny. The grill pan is good too.
Dutch isn't bad either! Outstanding cookware

Have a 22cm (~3.5 quarts) round that I use to make flawless rice, every time
Honest question, what makes them so good?
Braising dish is my best piece
Le Kirkland works just as well for me. It makes a mean jambalaya.

I have a couple of le creuset saucepans, and a Dutch oven. They're good pieces, but a pain to clean.
It's good quality cookware with a limited lifetime warranty. Have had my 22cm for years with no problems. You need to take care of it, just like any other porcelain enameled cast iron. No metal utensils and no steel wool. Wash with soapy water (no solvents) and dry immediately. It's supposedly dishwasher safe but I generally don't do that. And, of course, be careful not to bang them into anything which might chip the enamel.
To be honest, Le Creuset is way over-priced. After using the 22 for years, I bought another for $100 after the divorce (kitten insisted on keeping ours)...they're $150 now. Went looking for a larger oval Le Creuset for roasts a few months ago and couldn't find anything under $270...phone call to the Le Creuset outlet shop at Birch Run. Hell if was driving a 150 mile round-trip to pay for an over-priced pot. Lost interest with grilling season approaching.
There are other porcelain enamel cast iron cookware manufacturers. Think I'll look into Lodge next time
After oggling the Le Creuset Dutch ovens for 2 years waiting to get one for Christmas or whatever, someone at Sur La Table told me to hold out until this beauty went on sale. I bought the Staub for half the price of the similar Le Creuset and the quality is just as good. Glad I held out--it is one of my top 5 favorite kitchen items. Love the dimples in the lid, even cooking, versatility, and a giant cock ornament on the top to show my dinner guests who the biggest dbagger chef in the room is. And it's bright f'n yellow.
Love making cassoulet in this monster.

Nice way of putting it. That thing is pimpin'.
Got our 7 quart LC round oven at the outlet in Birch Run. If you ask they usually have 40% off any one item under the counter during certain months.
Would like to get their grill pan eventually.
Pretty sure "French oven" is just LC marketing speak for Dutch oven.

It is because we are all imposters that we endure each other.

Why pay for Le Creuset when you could buy a straight-up cast iron grill pan for a fraction of the cost...?
Nope! A "dutch" oven is always made of heavy cast iron while a "french" oven is typically made of a lighter gage metal and usually enamel coated. Le Crueset may use the monikers inter-changebly, but there is a defintional difference.
What a "crock" of shit.
This is the worst OT thread yet.

Someone please please please tell me this is sarcasm, a joke, or some 10% thing. No dude on tRCMB should be unaware of the more practical term 'dutch oven'. At the same time, no dude should come up with those definitions.
Seriously? They are the easiest things to clean IMO. The enamel coating helps stuff come off really easily.
i'm a guy. i don't own anything that can't go in the dishwasher.
They are seriously overpriced though.
I found a french made dutch oven, enamel coated for about half price.
Yeah, if you're having a hard time cleaning them, you're doing something wrong. The enamel makes them very easy to clean.
