My Favorite Cookware Set

People often ask me for advice on cooking tools and ingredients, and they usually want to know what I use in my own kitchen. When it comes to cookware, I tell them that in Mimi's Kitchen, we use Le Creuset.

I bought the first piece of my Le Creuset cookware set, a
5 qt. Dutch Oven, a few years ago and my husband thought I was out of my mind. I understand his reaction....he's an accountant after all, and $230 for a single piece of cookware could seem a bit much even to someone who doesn't think about dollars and cents for a living. (For the record, I bought it with a gift card!).

I had always heard about Le Creuset enameled cast iron cookware, but had never owned a piece before this one. I tried it out and that was it...I was hooked! I use it for soups, stews, roasting and braising and everything I make in this all-purpose beauty comes out perfect every time. It's safe to say that this Dutch Oven is my new favorite cooking tool and one that I use several times a week.

Since that first purchase, I have gotten several more pieces of Le Creuset, and I continue to be impressed with their quality and performance. I plan to keep adding to my collection, and in fact, I'm hoping that this year for Christmas, I'll find a set of Le Creuset stainless cookware under the tree! (Hint, hint…could someone please send Santa a link to this post for me?).

I truly believe that when it comes to cookware, you get what you pay for, so don't let the cost deter you from trying Le Creuset for up, get your first piece, and add more as you can down the'll be glad you did!
