Description

Brand-new does it all shape at a great value—deep with tall sides, this roomier version of the classic Le Creuset cast-iron Dutch oven offers 20% more room without taking up extra stovetop space. The tall sides, added height and extra depth reduce the risk of boil overs, contain splatters when deep frying and limit evaporation, which results in moist, flavorful food.

It’s perfect for soups, stews, stocks, sauces, deep frying, boiling and more. Host friends for a crab boil, braise a large roast or prepare one-pot meals like coq au vin, chili and chicken and dumplings. You can even bake crusty loaves of bread. Tight-fitting lids keep moisture from escaping, ensuring your dishes are steadily basted in their own juices for moist, delicious results.

Available in a wide range of Le Creuset’s signature vibrant glazes, these ovens add a touch of classic French beauty to any kitchen or table, while their unmatched versatility and superior cooking performance will keep you reaching for them for years to come.

Honey is beautiful color for this oven
Just received the Deep round Dutch Oven and it is AWESOME! I purchased Honey color and it's perfect color for any kitchen. Reminds me of Winnie the Pooh, and perfect size for the Holiday season coming up. This should be a part of any cooks kitchen.

Sue La Table cancelled my order!
I ordered this pot for my daughter's Xmas gift on a Black Friday Special for $199. A week later an email informed me it was back ordered. 2 weeks later I received an email informing me that my order was cancelled! Called & was told there was nothing they would do to honor the order. Ended up having to pay full price ($340) from Le Creuset. Joy!!! I will never shop with Sur La Table again & think this was a disgraceful & disingenuous way to treat a customer. Then they had the audacity to ask for feedback on my purchase. What a joke!!!!

Versatility
The height is perfect for soups, beans and deep frying.
Less oil needed for frying. Great for cooking for 2 people where you don’t need a wide pot.

Great addition to my kitchen
I have two other Le Creuset dutch ovens a 7.5 i've had for 20+ years and a 5.5 round I've had for 15+ years. These pots are well worth every penny, so when this new taller pot came out AND it came in the deep blue I have coveted for a long time I did not hesitate. It arrive in perfect condition and as I write this I'm cooking a batch of marinara in it. I really like the taller design because it really does cut down on the splattering & It goes from stove top to oven and clean up is a breeze. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Love Le Cruset
This is the fourth Le Cruset dutch oven I have purchased - all different sizes and shapes I have had some for many years. I absolutely love them all. This one is deeper and narrower than my others but it makes it perfect for some dishes. I love the cast iron and the quality of the Le Cruset cannot be beat. I have yet to have any of my items chip or fade. This deep round dutch oven is a great pot for every day cooking.

Great all around pan
This is used for melting butter, creating soups and sauces. Nice size to control the amount of food being made for a meal. Retains heat well, easy to clean. Color is really beautiful. I like the depth so oil splashes are minimal.

Great capacity with a smaller footprint on the stovetop. I needed something between my giant Lodge Dutch oven and my smaller covered casseroles. I'll use it for baking boules, deep frying, braising, soups, everything.

Jonathan S on Jan 14, 2019
How deep is the actual pot itself?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’s about 5.25 inches deep, which is two inches deeper than the Le Creuset Dutch oven I have. I enjoy the extra two inches for many different foods I cook.
Can it be used on ceramic/glass cook top?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used on a glass stovetop. We advise that you lift and not slide it, to avoid scratching the surface.
Will this cookware work on an induction cooktop?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It says, under features, that it is suitable for induction. I use my other Le Creuset on my induction top all the time. I'm assuming this will work just as well.
The care and usage drop-down box says the oven is rated at 390 degrees, one answer says 500 degrees?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi
I would probably not exceed 425 degrees for this pot. I have put cast iron in the oven at 500, but it was not enamel coated. This pot is too beautiful and essential in my kitchen to risk the coating at such a high heat. If you are looking for something to bake bread in at 500 degrees, try an uncoated cast iron pot like Lodge brand.
Is this pot round or oblong? Looks round...description says round...but dimensions given in description sound oblong or oval.
A shopper on Sep 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Round - dimensions include handles.
The Specs say its 11 lb. isn't it much heavier with chicken, etc?
Pearl W on Aug 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It actually feels surprisingly manageable compared to my other dutch ovens. It has become my favorite go to pot for everything...boiling potatoes, pasta, spaghetti sauce, soup, stews. I love it!
Can you fit a whole chicken in the 5.25 qt deep round dutch oven?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer this by experience as I returned the pot due to its weight, but I would have no doubt have used it to cook a large chicken although I find that the smaller pot which has the same surface area will also hold a chicken.. My favorite pot for a chicken of around 3lbs is the 3 and a half quart oval pot. Hope this helps.
Can this be used on an eight inch coil burner? I have a 20 inch electric stove that has three 6 inch burners and one 8 inch burner.
Bookshoppegirl on Nov 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No idea if it can be used on an 8" electric coil burner. The flat part of the bottom of the pot that comes in contact with the burners would be 7 1/2". I use gas. This is a terrific pot. I have the much larger version of this pot too, which is why I purchased this smaller version for making smaller meal batches.
Will a roast or whole chicken fit nicely?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The biggest portion of food to fill this pot could reach four pounds of any meats including vegetables with stock. My rule of thumb is 1 pound per quart. I have cooked cubed beef and perhaps two very small quail or one to two Cornish hens. Plus, this pot fits into my countertop oven, works well on induction stoves, and conserves heat after cooking your foods. This price is amazing for Le Creuset pots of this size.
Can you roast a chicken in the 5.25 qt deep dutch oven?
Kathryn K on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You sure can! After browning the bird in the dutch oven in equal parts butter and olive oil I put a lemon...poked with many holes...in the cavity and cover. Bake in 350 oven for about an hour. Take lid off last 20 minutes to brown the bird. I also put fresh sage leaves under the breast skin and baste the bird with melted butter the last 20 minutes. Cook to internal temp of 175-180.
I tried to use my Dutch oven on my gas stove top and it broke. Anyone else have this problem?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No and I have used my pot many times. I do not use high heat as I don’t find it necessary. This pot holds the heat very well and I never use heat higher than a medium setting. I have a Wolfe range and it heats fast and usually cook on a very low setting once the ingredients are heated. I love this pan!
What number is on the bottom?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 24, as in “Made in France 24”
Do you have the larger size in Cassis? I saw a 6 1/2 qt in red at William's but I like the Cassis.
A shopper on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: NO this is the largest I think I need and the largest I have purchased of the 9 pieces I have.
How tall is it and what temp will black knob withstand?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is about 5.5 inches tall to the rim of pan, about 2 more inches to top of knob and the black knob is oven temperature rated at 500 degrees F. max.
Will this work with a sous vide apparatus?
Christine D on Aug 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This pot is less than 8" tall and 9" wide so I imagine after you put the immersion circulator in there, there won't be much room for what your are "cooking". For example, I wouldn't try to fry more than a couple pieces of chicken in this pot.
