Le Creuset’s stainless steel 3 1/5quart casserole

. . . which I will call a cocotte basse. I am so excited to be able to use this LIGHT and fabulous 3-ply stainless steel cocotte . I LOVE Le Creuset cookware, but some days I need help lifting the cast iron enamel cookware off the stove. Very thoughtful of them to think of aging boomers like me, with neck and back issues like me. This cocotte is the ideal size for 4.


I couldn’t find the description for the cocotte on a US site for Le  Creuset, so here it is in French. Insert the link on your browser. I don’t know why it doesn’t show up on my page. Sorry.

I can tell you that it came from a Le Creuset Outlet store in Carlsbad, CA. It is a gorgeous piece of cookware.

    Hello Kitty, my nephews are kind of funny when it comes to vegetables but would like to have potatoes for Christmas and was wonder if I could substitute sweet potatoes in place of butternut squash in the Baked Pumpkin with Caramelized Onions, Cinnamon, and Almonds?
    Thank you

      Hi there!
      Thanks for writing me.
      Yes, I suppose you could substitute sweet potatoes. The dish will be a tad heavier, but the topping marries itself well with the flavor of thinly sliced sweet potatoes or yams. I have never made cassolita that way. Would love to know the result!
