I just love the Le Creuset line of pans, and this is not the first one that I have purchased. They all cook food so beautifully and are easy to clean. The one time I did have something stick, all I had to do was put a bit of detergent and water in the pan and heat it back up a little bit. The food that had stuck on floated up to the top and I had a clean pan once again.

This is a nice, heavy frying pan and I use it all the time to cook breakfast and all kinds of other foods. Meats in this pan cook quickly and evenly, plus the pour spouts are so useful to help get rid of bacon grease and other fats. Eggs cook quickly and easily without sticking as well. I love the fact that I do not have to add a lot of butter or oil to cook in this pan so that I can keep cooking healthily like I want to.


The convenience of this pan being able to withstand higher temperatures is so great too, since I know I can safely use this in my oven. This has helped me to be able to use this pan for so many different recipes, making this pan well worth the money I paid for it. Overall, it is a very versatile, sturdy and useful pan that I know I can continue to use for years to come.
