Description

EXCLUSIVE This iconic cooking vessel is a traditional way to cook and serve the Indian-style curries for which it is named. The Balti’s customary curved sides and flat base ensure solid contact with any stovetop heat source. Constructed from Le Creuset’s legendary enameled cast iron, this pot is as beautiful to look at as it is to cook with.

Designed to inspire cooks to explore a bounty of exciting regional dishes from around the world, Le Creuset’s World Cuisine Collection is now available for the first time in the US—and only from Sur La Table. The product of time-honored casting techniques, each dish is rigorously hand-finished at Le Creuset’s foundry in northern France. Available in Le Creuset’s signature Cherry glaze.

Functional and gorgeous
If you cook a lot of asian food, you will love this piece. Equally good as a curry pot as it is a wok for stir-fries (enough for 2 people).

The interior isn't non-stick but food moves and releases with ease. Great heat retention, handles don't get hot, and the shape and contrasting colours means it looks gorgeous on the table. A total winner!

Not as big as advertised
I bought this little Balti Dish partly as a novelty item because I liked its looks but also because I needed a 3 quart size pot with rounded bottom for sauces and such. The quality definitely gets top marks because it is a Le Creuset product, however, it is not at all a 3-quart size. At best it holds 2 1/2 quarts filled to the rim. I do enjoy using it and still like its looks. But I had to knock off one star for the deceptive claim of its 3-quart size.

Le Crueset all purpose pot
I have no idea what a ‘balti’ is. Animal, vegetable, or mineral? However, I love the heavy pot for stir frying all my icebox leftovers for a delicious dinner for 2.

It's like a wok, but it's Le Creuset. My favorite cookware is enameled cast iron.
Alice M on Sep 24, 2018
Love the look of the pot, and how deep it was, will prevent anything from spilling out when cooking!

fantastic pan
SUSAN B on Jul 10, 2016
This wok-like pot is very versatile for not only Indian cuisines but all cuisines. This pot fosters the same great attributes as all other Le Creuset cast iron: even heat distribution, impeccable browning and appropriate pot depth for mess-free stirring and tossing.

Looking to replace my large wok with something smaller. Love le creuset quality and durability.

Deep high sides, hope they make a wider one in the future, have been looking for a sturdy version like this to replace one that wore out.
Lora D on Feb 25, 2015
Wanted a wok-like cooking vessel that could also be used for other cooking tasks. Your price and free shipping promotion were excellent.
Jeremy W on Feb 21, 2015
To be honest, I'm a Le Creuset addict and this was a unique shape. When it arrived, the pan was exactly as described - both beautiful and functional - and it fills a void with our other LeCreuset cookware.
Laurie B on Feb 18, 2015
This looks like a very practical cooking pot for many of my recipes.
Cathleen A on Jan 3, 2015

My husband loves Le Creuset, so every holiday season I'm looking for new products from them for his gifts. This intrigued me so I purchased. Love Le Creuset products. They clean up like nothing else and I love that he loves them.

SUSAN B on Jul 10, 2016
Can you please tell me the capacity of this pot? It only gives dimensions.
Donna D on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's approximately 3 quarts.
Does the Balti dish come with a cover?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, this Balti dish does not have a lid.
Does it work with induction cooktop?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is induction compatible.
I have a glass top range, is this cast iron "balti"appropriate to use on glass top?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can but just be careful not to drop it on your glass cook top. Like any cast iron pot, it's heavy for its size. I would also recommend lifting it to move or turn it to avoid scratching your cook top.
What color red is this pot? Is it the new Burgundy color? Or is it the standard red?
Beverly C S on Dec 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I compared pictures of the new burgundy and the classic cherry red and, to me, this pot looks like the cherry red.The pot is beautiful and cooks very well. Since it has no cover, I use it when I'm going right from the stove top or oven to the table. Hope this helps.
Can I use this for deep frying?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Certainly. Although this is the traditional shaped utensil for making balti dishes, it is also multi-functional. I use it all the time for other dishes and deep frying. But ,would not fill it more than half full of oil due to the danger of it overflowing when you put in your chicken, fish, fries, etc., and catching fire, as are the instructions for any other deep frying utensils.
how much does the balti weigh?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm estimating about 4-5 pounds per bathroom scale. It's accuracy may not be the best. I have a large cast iron wok that you don't move often. This one seems to be solid and easy to move for everyday use.
