Iconic French cookware.

Description

EXCLUSIVE Le Creuset’s iconic Dutch ovens are perfect for slow cooking, simmering soups and stews, and baking everything from side dishes to no-knead bread.

With ergonomic handles and an advanced interior enamel that resists chipping and cleans easily, Le Creuset’s Dutch ovens blend the best of the past with the latest innovations in comfort and functionality.

Using La Creuset for nearly 50 years.
I received La Creuset as a gift nearly 50 years ago. My recent purchase off a 3.5 quart is just ideal for my current use. I love the products.

Perfection, as expected
The reputation of Le Creuset is right on the money. This is the perfect size for a weeknight dinner. The cast iron retains the heat beautifully for searing. The enamel makes clean up a breeze. Worth every single penny. I am looking forward to 20 years or more with this piece.

Great piece of cookware
Love it. It’s a great size for braising and browning small roasts before adding to an instant pot or slow cooker! Pricey but totally worth it!
Cream of mushroom and artichoke soup...love my new Le Creuset! Also great for braising!

I love my Le Creuset Dutch oven. So easy to clean. Cook faster using lower heat settings. Beautiful design and color (marseille). And most importantly one of the healthiest choices of cookware to avoid any toxic metals leeching in your food. Love ?? Le Creuset.

Le Creuset Round Wide Dutch Oven, 3.5 qt Provence Color
I love all my Le Creuset,pieces, but this color is simply beautiful--wish I could start over and trade in my other colors!

Provence Color
The Provence color is a bit disappointing in person. From the promotional emails and website photos, I thought the color would be a gorgeous vibrant lavender. In person it's more of a muted, grey-toned purple. It's still pretty--just not what I was expecting. I haven't decided yet if I will keep it or not. I do like the 3.5 qt size a lot, however.

I have one Le Creuset Dutch Oven and I absolutely love it for cooking all sorts of different meals. It retains heat evenly and I can’t seem to burn anything in it. And, although it is somewhat heavy, it cleans up easily.

What are the dimensions for this 3.5 qt round wide Dutch oven -- diameter without the handles and height without the lid?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 10" x 3"
Does anyone know what this recipe is??
Angie on Sep 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Are you referring to a recipe shown in one of the pictures on the product page? If so, please let us know which picture you are inquiring about.
Can this be used on an induction cooktop?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can.
Regarding the 3.5 qt. size, is there a drawback to the wide and shallow dimension?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's hard to think of drawbacks for this piece. But if I have to, I'd have to say The 'wide' part is not that wide. The 5 qts. Version is wider. If you pan fry things in it, the oil might splatter compared to a regular ( deeper) Le Creuset round Dutch oven.
What does the number 28 on the bottom of my dutch oven mean?
gerrie b on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The number refers to width rather than capacity -- it is the inside diameter in centimeters, so 28 would be 28 centimeters. If that is on the regular-sized Dutch oven, that would be the 7.25 quarts. But if the pot is a different height (such as the wide or shallow ovens), it would be a different capacity.
Can you use this on the stove top or just in the oven? I am looking for an all in one pot to make pasta dishes etc.
A shopper on Oct 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I love this piece...Not only is it beautiful, yes you can use it in both applications. I've made a wonderful Cassoulet Stoup on the stove, an amazing Bison Pot Roast in the Oven and a Yorkshire Pudding in the oven as well. The Dutch Oven also works great to start on the stovetop and finish in the oven. You will not be dissapointed. In fact, I would love the next size up to add to my collection!
Is it nonstick?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it isn’t. However you get fantastic results if you use lower heat and keep some liquid in the pan. For sauté use, use higher heat and stir food frequently to minimize sticking. Use wooden utensil and scrape immediately food that is starting to stick. Works well for searing, braising.
Can these
Dutch ovens be put in the oven for cooking?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can use it in the oven, If the lid has a metal knob. If it has the black phenolic lid knob they cannot be used at oven temperature (black knobs are heat-resistant only up to 375°F).
What number is printed on this 3 1/2 qt round wide dutch oven? 22? 24?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The number I have printed on my new Le Creuset is #24.
I was originally looking for a tagine, but I wanted to buy something that I would get more use out of, could this be used as a tagine?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve never used a tangine. I’ve used the Dutch oven for everything from chicken dinner to baked mashed potatoes to casseroles. I don’t know the function of a tangine specifically, but the Dutch oven is very versatile.
What’s the difference between the 3.5 qt wife Dutch over, and the 3.5 qt signature braiser? Thank you!
A shopper on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These pots both serve the same purpose. I like to use the braised for casseroles that have a topping ( bread crumbs, cheese etc) because the pan is shallow compared to the Dutch oven and every serving can have lots of topping. I love it for mac & cheese and seafood casseroles. I use my Dutch oven for stews. I couldn't be without both of them!
Is this the Signature series?
Marilyn W on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has the bigger handles....note the only difference between the 375 degrees and 500 degrees is the knob. All of the Le Creuset dutch ovens are safe up to 500 degrees if they have the new phenolic knob (it is black but bigger and bulkier) or the stainless steel knob. You can put either the signature series or the classic series in the oven up to 500 degrees...just get yourself a stainless steel knob if it does not have one.
I ordered the 3 1/2 qt round wide dutch oven in the Provence color. The box says Blue Bell Pepper and the color is darker then what is pictured. Anyone else's box say Blue Bell Pepper instead of Provence?
Emilie A on Jan 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That's interesting if they are the same. Why would the box not say Provence? Blue Bell Purple (sometimes written Bluebell) had been introduced in Asia previously.
Can you bake a loaf of bread in this model?
Thanks!
Michelle Q on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My husband has made "no knead" bread in our dutch oven a number of times. Recipe available on-line.
Are all of them now come with the metal knob or just the newer one (Provence)?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a blue one in the fall and the handle was not metal.
Is it made in China???
A shopper on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this is made in France.
Is the oyster color in this 3.5 qt round wide Dutch oven going to be available again this year? i was just going to order it!
A shopper on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This product in Oyster has been marked discontinued, so it is unlikely that it will be available again.
Is the new lavender color pots under the name lavender or is it under another name?i can't see the colors clearly in the blocks? Is Provence the lavender color?
Nicky R on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the name of the color is Provence.
do you still have the color Rosemary?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, we do not have the color Rosemary available.
Is this lead free?
