Ma cocotte
It is affordable, beautiful, and not that heavy, and keeps the warmth perfectly. I cook a lot of stews and this is perfect. First came broken and Sur la table sent me a new one. Thank you!

Raised black drops
I have used it to boil eggs and make vegetable soup. Works wonderfully. However, after using twice, I now get black raised drops on the outside only. Very strange.

Bakes bread as well as my cast iron Dutch oven, and is lighter and easier to clean. It's brand new, so I haven't had opportunity to cook anything else with it, but so far, no complaints.
Good job, Emile.

Absolutely love
Light, sturdy, holds heat wonderfully. I can't imagine why anyone would want a cast iron pot when this is so much lighter and better.

Too large for me
I wish I had shopped in person. I didn't realize how large it would be and didn't know who to return it to, to exchange. There was an awful lot of packaging to try sending it back.

I chose this to bake no-knead bread; much cheaper than Le Creuset cast iron but works as well.

Superior, classic craftmanship. The perfect size multipurpose casserole to be used for bread baking and soups and stews. Beautiful addition to our other Emile Henry tools.
Michael J on Dec 29, 2018
Had a specific requirement that this pot fit in our RV oven and be 4 qt, this pot meets those requirements (barely) and should be ideal for our purposes. This will be an oven-only cookware, I would NEVER put a clay pot on a stovetop, even if made of imaginarium.
Patricia S on Nov 28, 2018
We own this and wanted our children to have this too
Katherine D on Nov 26, 2018
I have an Emile Henry Casserole and use it constantly for stews and soups. I am giving one to my niece, who has a young family. I am sure she will love it and use it as much as I do.

Did everyone follow the instruction to pour hot milk to the bottom of the casserole? Mine got a funny texture after pouring the hot milk in, while that's the instruction given by Emile Henry. I don't know if that's normal.
Kwok Kin C on Oct 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but I did it on low to low medium heat. I didn't boil the milk hard. Mine stayed the same color. These pots don't need high heat. It's very steady on medium heat. Love these pots! Moist chicken in the oven! Great bread!
Hello, this likes like a great little pot. The specs only give dimensions for the 4.2 quart size. Can you tell me the outer/inner dimensions with and without handles and lid for the other sizes as well (esp. the 2.6 quart)? Thanks!
Ivy S on Sep 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Emile Henry 2.6 quart – Approximate Measurements
Outside Diameter (at top) = 22.0 cm
Inside Diameter (at top) = 21.2 cm
Handles = 27.4 cm
Height with Lid = 15.0 cm
Height without Lid = 10.8 cm
Lid Outside Diameter = 23.0 cm
The only dimensions given are for the 2.6 quart. Can you provide the dimensions of the heights, with and without the lids, and the diameters/widths, with and without handles for all the other sizes? I am particularly interested in the 5.5 qt. and the 7 qt. but I am sure that someone will need the information for the others as well. Thank you.
A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 2.6qt 9-inch diameter, 6 inches deep
4.2qt 10-inch diameter, 6.5-inches deep
5.5qt 11-inch diameter, 7-inches deep
7qt 12-inch diameter, 8-inches deep
Can you use enough heat to saute soup base vegetables or garlic on the stovetop in these casseroles? I would like to understand the limits of the direct-heat uses of these pots.
Stacy T on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. I make soup often and this is my go to pot. I love that it can go from the stove to the oven. You will not be disappointed.
Is the dimpled lid (as stated in the Sur la Table catalog) like the dimpled lids on the round Staub cocottes?
Andrew R on Mar 27, 2015
I have the pink fait tout . Can it be used on gas stove top, microwave?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The answer comes from the company website for this casserole- USAGE & CARE section:

Use with: Directly on the heat (gas, electricity, halogen, and with an induction disk for induction stove tops); Oven; Microwave; Dishwasher
From freezer...
to microwave or oven.
On the stovetop. (except the Baking Stone & Pizza Stone)
Slow cooking, keeps hot.
Attractive presentation.
Easy to clean, dishwasher safe.
On the barbeque.
Does using it in the oven change the color of the pot interior or exterior?
A shopper on May 3, 2016
Is it safe to use the casserole to store the food in the refrigerator after it is cooked?
Samuel C on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: One of the great features of this cookware line is being able to freeze, refrigerate, and cook in the same vessel!

It's definitely safe for the cookware. Follow the guidelines about allowing the food and dish to cool or warm first; avoid moving anything directly from the oven/stovetop to the refrigerator/freezer, or vice versa.

If you're asking whether it's safe for the food, it should be, provided you follow the usual protocols about how quickly to refrigerate hot foods, how quickly to heat cold foods if intending to serve hot, and use clean utensils for serving, to avoid introducing any extra bacteria. (You can find helpful information on the USDA site as well as through local extension/coop services or universities.) If you're nervous about cooked food losing moisture, you could add plastic wrap and then the lid for a little extra protection.

Hope you enjoy your purchase!
How do I prepare to use an Emile Henry Dutch oven?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We found two suggested procedures, one involving scalding milk and the other, rice. Some people had complained about the milk method leaving a sour smell in the pot, so we boiled rice in it, and then discarded the rice. I believe this is supposed to "seal" the glaze and cleanse it for use. Remember, when cooking on the stovetop, ALWAYS have liquid in the bottom. It's a great pot for soups and stews.
Can I sauté, fry and make popcorn it it?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can sear meat. it is not really a saute pan and I have no idea about popcorn. I don't see why not. You need to be careful of how high you turn the heat with out much stuff in it. Contact Emile Henry on line.
How heavy is it?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased mine specifically to make bread. It is much lighter than my cast iron Le Creuset Dutch oven, my other bread oven. I am happy with the weight and performance of the Emile Henri pot.
Is it good on glass stove tops? And how heavy is it?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used on glass stovetops.
The 2.6qt weighs 3.5lbs.
The 4.2qt weighs 7.6lbs.
The 5.5qt weighs 8.13lbs.
The 7qt weighs 9.7lbs.
do all Emile Henri cookware have emblems. Mine just has the name on the bottom of the dish?
A shopper on May 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The majority of EH items do not have emblems, just the name on the bottom and some other markings.
A shopper on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have always hand washed my casserole and have never had a film form. Sorry but no idea what's happening in your situation.
