Available in a range of vivid colors, each casserole is the product of time-honored casting techniques and rigorous hand finishing at Le Creuset’s foundry in northern France.

First Time I am Disappointed with Le Creuset
While my other Le Creuset pieces are fine, this one has been a problem. The first one which was shipped to me from Sur La Table had a defective enamel coating on the inside. Although they couldn't be felt, there were visible black specks on the enamel. Additionally, the enamel became discolored after one use. As usual, exchanging it at Sur La table was not a ptoblem, but upon using it the first time, I found the glass lid to be a very poor fit, to the point it actually slides around a bit while on the casserole. The enamel coating still has a couple of black specks, but did not discolor during use.

Perfect Everyday Pan
I have been coveting this pan for a while - it's the perfect size for everyday cooking. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I absolutely LOVE it. I own a small collection of Le Creuset (dutch ovens in two sizes, a small 2-qt sauce pan and a very large and wide pot) and this is my go-to almost every week night. The glass lid makes it so much more practical and the color choices are lovely. I bought the yellow one and it looks beautiful on my cooktop.

Fantastic pan
I really enjoy this pan. It is a great size and shape. I really like cooking with cast iron. It holds heat so well. Due to the enamel interior coating I now can cook with tomatoes and other acidic foods, and gravies are easier to make. The metal lid knob makes it more oven usable than pans with composite knobs. I have only used it 3-4 times but see it being my go-to pan for a lot of dishes.

JULIE V on Dec 20, 2016
I've been using a 10" tall-side skillet, and need a larger 12" casserole for stove top use. This one is convenient because it has the double handles rather than the long skillet handle, so I can pop it easily into the oven. I really like the lightweight and see-through glass lid, too, for monitoring progress without letting out the steam.
Stephanie V on Dec 20, 2016
To replace an oval piece which is heavier than I want to use anymore and is not Le Creuset. This will match a Le Creuset skillet I bought earlier this year. I will gift my oval piece, and it's a good time to take advantage of the current sale.

Kaye C on Dec 16, 2016
This is the best skillet we have come across - even heat while cooking and a breeze to clean up - The glass lid also allows for easy monitoring of cooking. This is my go to for anything that need a sauce pan - A big plus is that it is not as heavy as many of the Le Crueset pans . I have found that a bit of bar keepers friend makes the clean up quite simple

This is now my go to gift for special occasions! Of course the sale price makes it affordable

John R on Nov 29, 2016
I have been looking for a Le Creuset shallow pan that is a good substitute for a Calpholon pan I have that is almost 14 years old and needs to go. I will miss the long handle but will love the enamel coated pan/skillet that will serve lots of purposes for me. Plus, glass lid where I can see the food cooking is key. Finally, you just can't go wrong with Le Creuset and am happy with the price.

BEST ANSWER: The only difference is the lid.
Could this be used as a skillet?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2016

What is the weight?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2016

6 lbs. 14 oz. w/o lid
Is the lid made in France too?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is.
Actual base dimension touching the cook top surface?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The pan bottom that actually comes in contaCT with the stovetop is 9.25 inches- it's slighty raised, sort of a lip...if that helps.
Can the glass lid be put in the oven ?
Evey S on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Per the product features: Lid is oven-safe to 425°F and stays securely in place to lock in steam and flavor

Is deeper- I have a 3.5 qt casserole already which I love!
Is this pan suitable for a frittata?
Marcia B on Nov 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Most definitely
Can this be used to make risotto?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not... however, it IS a large flat surface... so it would be good for a large recipe of risotto. It might take more liquid because the surface is so large the rice wouldn't have enough time to absorb because of the quick evaporation... Le Creuset does have a "risotto pan" - I have that one and it makes lovely risotto.
is the bottom finished?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The bottom of this Buffet Casserole with Glass Lid has the same finish and color as the rest of the item. I bought this in September of this year and it is my go to casserole dish. Love it and will probably purchase it in a different color.
Can someone tell me the difference between the le creuset buffet casserole and the le creuset braiser? Not sure which one I should purchase. Thanks!
A shopper on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's most likely a matter of preference. I have the le creuset buffet casserole and really like it. I like the glass lid as you can see into the dish without removing the lid. The braiser is nice, but I think less versatile. I don't have one but when considering, I realized that I would use the buffet casserole more frequently... but, again, it's really a matter of how you will use it and how often. I use my Le Creuset in a variety of ways...
Does anyone own both the buffet casserole and the braiser? If so, which do you prefer and why?

Le Creuset Buffet Casserole with Glass Lid, 3.5 qt.
Le Creuset Buffet Casserole with Glass Lid, 3.5 qt.
Le Creuset Signature Marseille Braiser, 5 qt.
Le Creuset Signature Marseille Braiser, 5 qt.
BEST ANSWER: only own the the one the see through lid in pink, my fav color !, , love it, made shrimp scampi in it and could keep it hot, yet it is displayed beautifully.
What is the measurement of the glass lid? Is the glass lid sold separately?
John Q on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lid is 12.5x2.5. It is not sold separately.
