Every now and then I like to make recommendations that I myself have purchased and have come to love. This is one of those days. I love experimenting in the kitchen – sometimes resulting in disaster.
This time of year I especially love cooking up warm, soulful soups and stews. The only pot that I have any interest in doing this in is my Le Creuset. These pots are pricey, but they are life changing.
Obviously, they come in a variety if beautiful colors, but they are amazing to use as well. The coating, while rustic looking, is nonstick. It makes sautéing and braising much easier. If you have an aspiring chef on your holiday list, I cannot think of a better gift. You can get Cash Back on these pots at a variety of stores like Sur La Table, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Macy’s.
