Frankly, Le Creuset has no place in a cooks kitchen. We have other cast iron cookware which has been very good, most of which is bare, not non- stick - the point of cast iron is the coating of oils it builds up. Have now returned three out of four Le Creuset pieces purchased one and a half years ago, and we do know how to look after it. Big casserole slowly developed a crack from an initial blemish noted on supply, little casserole lost bits of non-stick to reveal rust underneath, and was never… Read Full Review

Avoid any Le Creuset non stick pans. I have had frying pan and milk pan where the non stick coating started to flake off after a few years. On complaining, the response from Le Creuset was that it had been used on too high a heat and with the wrong implement. Neither of these was true. More likely that they don't know how to get the surface to stick to cast iron!… Read Full Review

I love Le Creuset pans and if they were any cheaper i would buy in bulk, but i can only afford 1 or 2 at the time. I bought 2 sizes of the deep frying toughened non stick pans with lid and a griddle. They are extremely heavy because the bottom is thick. Food does not stick, even if you cook with very little fat. I even use them to cook risotto and it never got burned at the bottom. I find them easy to clean and also go in the oven. I haven't had any problems in around a year… Read Full Review

Le Creuset Cookware has a lifetime guarantee, distributes the heat evenly like it says. Customer service excellent, quick queue unlike others you wait ages. If you don't look after the pan and read the instructions of course faults will appear. You can be a user for 20+ years but still wont know how to look after it. High heats are only used for boiling. Start off the pan on a high heat but use liquid so it doesnt heat dry. Turn the heat down straight away when adding food and you find the pan… Read Full Review

I have been using Le Creuset pans for over 20 years.
I recently had a problem with the non stick flaking off.
I contacted customer services by letter. There response was to telephone me and tell me it was my fault for having the light too high!
It also cost £9.95 to send it too them for them to inspect.
I did eventually get the postage back from them.
In future I will buy from Marks & Spencers, at least you know you have a superb customer service there… Read Full Review

Le Creuset Cookware looks good, it is long lasting and is non-stick. However, I found it to be far too heavy to use on a regular basis, so in my opinion, a waste of money… Read Full Review

I think that Le Creuset Cookware is really over rated. The pans are very heavy, Food sticks and they are difficult to clean… Read Full Review

I really like all of the Le Creuset Cookware range, the quality is great and even though they are slightly more expensive than some products, they are worth it. Great value for money, can be used to make almost anything, very durable, and wash easily. Available in a wide range of colours, and have a life time guarantee… Read Full Review

Only after using it a few times, the white enamel just shattered in the middle of cooking. When I stirred the casserole, white little shards started to appear. The bottom of the pot had come off and I had to throw out the dinner.
I took it back to the retailer who sent it away to Le Creuset. Despite no longer having the receipt (as it was a gift), they were happy to replaced it with a caution not to overheat it next time. I didn't think I treated it that badly.
It took me a while to trust the… Read Full Review

I bought a size 29 Le Creuset cocotte new from Ebay for a lot less than the retail price (about £50 versus £80). I was in the middle of retail therapy at the time, so I didn't use the thing for a while. Fortunately, my girlfriend demonstrated that it can be used for just about anything. Making chilli? Cook off the ingredients in the pan, add everything else and put the lid on. Casserole: cook off, add liquid, put in the oven then take straight to the table. Sausages and bacon without the… Read Full Review
