Le Creuset 6.3L Oval French Oven - Blueberry
Founded in 1920's France, at the crossroads of iron, sand and fuel transportation routes, Le Creuset has been making heirloom-grade cookware for almost 100 years.

Why we love it: This large French oven will become a fixture in your busy kitchen.¬† Perfect for boiling grains, blanching vegetables, deep frying, baking bread, and, of course, soups and stews for a crowd.
Le Creuset‚Äôs light-colored enamel makes it so easy to see the progress of the sear on our proteins, to gauge the darkness of flavorful fond and caramelizing onions, or to see the tip of a deep-frying thermometer. Searing meats to golden brown perfection is fast in the generous surface area which keeps our¬† proteins from steaming while this pot‚Äôs weightiness gives us even heat so we can brown all of our meat consistently.¬† The elegant oval shape makes this pot extra-ideal for porchetta, a whole chicken or vegetables like corn on the cob.
Heirloom quality, this pot will be a welcome sight for your clan of happy eaters as they feast on a light and flavorful bouillabaisse, a saucy and fragrant tagine, a homey pot of pho,¬† a fried chicken fiesta etc.¬†
Large loop handles make it easy to move the pot from stove top, to the oven, to the table,¬† and finally to the dishwasher for deceptively easy meal-making for decades.
