    I'm in need for a 6 quart covered soup pot. This past year I gave away too many pots and pans to friends...woops! The Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven 5.5 would be just right however I'm looking at VSalon to tell me what else is out there worth considering.

    My 6 quart copper / stainless pot has been getting a workout and I want to stop using it every tuesday for yogurt / milk heating. I'm looking for something easier to clean up and heavy enough not to burn milk.

    Enamel on cast iron sure is nice. What else?

    I haven't tried these yet, but it's a sale on copper, so why not? Falk Copper Cookware - Stock Pots - Falk USA

    Nice very nice. Noooooooooo I can't. MUST have something that I can be less careful with. It's the car equivalent of a daily driver.

    I've been using a Staub braiser recently that I've really liked. I don't know if it's better than Le Creuset stuff, but the black interior does a nice job of hiding scratches and not discoloring.

    I think I've mentioned in the past that I've been impressed by the Mauviel M'Cook stainless clad pot I bought last year. If I wanted a dishwasherable pan for heavy rotation, I'd look there: Mauviel: M'cook Stainless Steel Stew pot & Lid, cast stainless steel handle, 6.4 qt



    Matfer makes a similar product for less dough, and although I haven't tried it I expect it's good, too: BOURGEAT EXCELLENCE CASSEROLE WITHOUT LID | Matfer Bourgeat USA baking utensils

    For soup, chili, stews the 7.25 quart enamel cast iron soup pot by Le Creuset is really a great pot and a versatile one. I do not think there is a better pot for the job.

    I bought a 5.5 quart Le Creuset dutch oven this year and I don't know how I lived without it. Some stews and sauces fill it pretty high, though. I think a 7 1/4 quart one would be perfect as long as you're amenable to hauling around the extra weight.

    TT and others ........

    The tower of Le Creuset. I really like the big oval shaped Dutch Oven. You can fit a whole turkey in there .....

    And my newest purchase, a glazed clay Tajin from Spain. One of the wineries here is owned by a German family who bring in both Olive Oil and pottery from Spain as well. Looking forward to trying this out. bought it this week, $25.

    Very nice, Jim!
    Funnily, we have been looking at Tajins lately.
    If you don't mind me asking, which winery did you get that from?

    Bodega 1117 out in Summerland.

    He does some wines ( which I am not crazy about) but his main business is vinegar. He brews vinegar and has a lot of this Spanish pottery. The Balsamic is very good and he has spanish olive oil in 5 litre cans.

    Just the other side of Giant's Head, not far from Dirty Laundry (BTW - I had never been to Dirty Laundry before - that is quite an operation, wow). I have to admit that a visit to Hainle pretty much spoiled me for a lot of the wines in the valley as what they are selling are generally not last years production ....

    I know that area but I haven't stopped yet to sample anything. It's always straight to Naramata Bench.
    Maybe we'll visit Hainle after we pick up our Tajin. Thanks for the info!

    Just cuz, I got rid of my cast iron Lodges and Staubs, and am trying this stuff:

    Revol Porcelain: cookware, bakeware & dinnerware

    Right now I only have the bakeware (ramekins, tart pans, pizza stone) because they were sale items, but the Revolution 2 stuff looks pretty cool: chip-resistant, half the weight of the cast iron, and works on any heat source, including induction.

    The production quality of the few items I opened up is pretty fantastic -- easily as nice as Emile Henry, probably a bit better finish -- the 'basalt' and asymmetric bits are a joy to behold. I'll burn something and report back.

    Le Creuset doing the heavy lifting while the cook enjoys some of the cheap stuff.



    It bakes killer bread too.



    Easily one of my top-10 all-time kitchen implements.

    Making sure I fill in any gaps before all of the original cast iron handle Mauviel is gone.

    now that looks neat, if a bit beyond my price point. I'm curious how they make it induction-ready--iron dust in the glass? those dang French

    I haven't a clue how they make it induction-ready... iron-rich clay? I'm hoping to catch it on sale next year -- the basalt-colored baking dish is fabulous, and on close-out was a great buy. At retail....?
