I'm a huge of Le Creuset fan and I'm happy to share with you the 5 Quart Braiser! When I received the box from Le Creuset, I felt like it was Christmas! They sent me the braiser in their newest color, fennel green. It's gorgeous. I know some people would like to have all of their cookware matching but I just love the vibrant colors that Le Creuset products come in. Every single piece I own is in a different color.
The 5 Quart Braiser is heavy and like their other cast iron products, it promotes even heat retention and distribution. While it's not considered non-stick, I find the enameled cast iron very easy to clean.
While it didn't start out as a new year's resolution, I have resolved to get rid of all of non-stick cookware pieces in my kitchen. The 5 Quart Braiser is becoming an essential part of that. I have used it to braise meat, make stir fries, saute mushrooms and make chicken pot pie filling. Like I said before, it's easy to clean, it's easy to use and I love that I can put it in the oven. It would serve perfectly as a casserole dish. I also love that it goes perfectly from oven to table, it makes a beautiful centerpiece!
We're kicking off June the right way! And as a way to celebrate the new look of The Little Kitchen, I'm excited to share with one lucky reader, their own Le Creuset 5 Quart Braiser! The braiser will be shipped directly to the winner from Le Creuset.
Depending on the color, Amazon has the Le Creuset 5 Quart Braiser listed at almost 36% off.
One winner chosen at random to receive a Le Creuset 5 Quart Braiser in the color of their choice (subject to availability). Retail value $345.
