Description

Le Creuset’s colorful braiser is ideal for searing, slow cooking, simmering, sautéing, baking, braising meats, preparing short ribs, stews, marinating, poaching, browning and much more! Its unmatched versatility and superior cooking performance make it an addition to your kitchen that you’ll use every day.

HANDCRAFTED IN FRANCE

At the Le Creuset foundry in northern France, molten iron is sand-cast from a single mold that’s destroyed after use, explaining why no two pieces are exactly alike. The Le Creuset cast-iron braiser is sand-cast, painstakingly polished and finished by hand, then sprayed with two coats of enamel and fired twice. No other procedure yields cookware that performs as well.

EVENLY CONDUCTS AND RETAINS HEAT

Since Le Creuset’s enameled cast-iron cookware evenly distributes heat, the braiser is perfect for searing, simmering, sautéing, and braising meats. It combines the versatility of a wide cooking area with the precision and control of a heat-retaining lid. A flat base allows for poaching, searing, roasting, stir-frying, and browning, and is also great for everything from rich risottos and spicy curries to jasmine rice and more. We think this might be one of the most versatile pieces of cookware we’ve ever tested.

THE BEST MATERIALS FOR A LIFETIME OF USE

The smooth, long-lasting exterior enamel resists chipping and cracking, while the durable interior sand enamel is engineered to resist staining and dulling. The interior sand enamel is the best formulation on the market today. Perfect for cooking with moisture, it’s also the easiest to clean.

DESIGNED TO MAKE COOKING AND SERVING EASIER

A re-engineered lid makes sure it stays more securely in place and locks in more flavors and aromas. Built-in lid stabilizers create a no-slide fit, and the slip-resistant composite knob is heat resistant to 500°F. Oversized handles (now 45% larger) provide even weight distribution and a secure grip, so you can easily transport the pot from stovetop to oven to table—even while wearing oven mitts.

With a wide range of sizes and vibrant colors, you’re sure to find just the right one—whether you’re making dinner for two or serving a holiday feast. Suitable for all heat sources: electric, gas, halogen, and induction.

Awesome cookware le creuset is !
The best investment I have ever made for being 13 . A beginner cook needs a good pot and this didn't fail me . Basically nonstick , super easy clean up , and wonderfully large and comfortable handles . Oh and oven safe. Thats a plus
May 17, 2012
Amazingly versatile
As with all Le Creuset, you know you're making a wise investment. This piece is especially versatile as the bottom can be used for pan frying - crab cakes turn out especially well. The depth is ideal for braising smaller-medium pieces of meat such as fish and poultry. This allows you to save your larger French ovens for other dishes, or bigger cuts of meat.

The large loop handles make this easy to maneuver, whether moving it into the oven, or bringing it to the table for a beautiful presentation. That's also nice because it spares you from having to dirty another plate, or make a mess in transferring your food to a platter.

The only question is - which color to get? I chose the indigo, which looks far better in person than on the website, because of its beauty, classic color, and masculine appearance. You can either choose indigo to match your existing pieces, or to add another color to your Le Creuset collection.

Among the Le Creuset line, this is among their most versatile pieces, and you'll find yourself reaching for it again and again

Beautiful
This is my first Le Creuset, and it’s absolutely beautiful. I’ve always wanted one, but when it came out in purple (my favorite color), I had to have one. I was afraid the 3.5 qt braiser might be too small, but it’s not. It’s the perfect size.

Province is really pretty!
Love my new lavender braiser! Should be a great pan for just about everything- curry, chicken & rice, baked pasta, casseroles. And I'll get a bonus upper body workout because it is nice and heavy!

The perfect pan
We received this same braiser decades ago as a wedding gift and it quickly became my favorite, inspiring me on a journey of great cooking adventures. It continues to be the best pan I've ever used. We pay the tradition forward presenting this braiser to the next gen of young cooks/couples, selecting the color to match their tastes/personalities. A huge winner!

Difference between( Le Creuset 3.5 qt.) braiser and buffet casserole, as far as versatility?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2016
Le Creuset Signature Braiser, 3.5 qt.
Le Creuset Signature Braiser, 3.5 qt.
Le Creuset Buffet Casserole with Glass Lid, 3.5 qt.
Le Creuset Buffet Casserole with Glass Lid, 3.5 qt.
BEST ANSWER: The only difference is the lid.
How does the diameter of the 3.5 qt compare to the 3.5 qt Staub braiser?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Le Creuset 3.5 quart braiser is 13 X 12.6 X 3.5
The Staub 3.5 quart braiser is 13.4 X 11.7 X 4
Difference between braiser and dutch oven

I'm debating between purchasing two le creuset cast iron products - the wide, round dutch oven vs. the braiser. How do they compare for versatility and use
A shopper on Aug 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Both the braiser and the French/Dutch Oven offer many of the same features. You can sear, bake, do reductions for sauce and serve all in the same vessel. Both retain their heat for a long time so your food stays hot longer, and both can be used on the stovetop as well as the oven.Because the braiser is spread out farther than a French Oven you have a larger space for browning/searing your food to accomodate perhaps a chuck steak or chicken pieces. With the French Oven you can still brown/sear your food, but it will accomodate taller foods such as a roast or a whole chicken. The braiser can also be used for a saute pan with the lid off or for pan frying where the French Oven can also be used for a deep fryer
I have an indigo brasier that has "30" on the inside lid, what size does this refer to?
Mary Anne L on Mar 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 30 means is 3.5 quarts or 3.2 liters.
What are the dimensions of 5 qt braiser Le Creuset
A shopper on May 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 17"" across with the handles,15 1/2"" across without the handles, &5 1/2"" tall with the lid
Will the 3 1/2 qt. braiser hold 5-6 lbs. of short ribs?
Ann K on Oct 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. You'd be better off using the larger 5 quart. You really don't want the short ribs touching while you're browning them.
What is the difference between the indigo color and the cobalt on this cookware?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Only at Sur La Table: Le Creuset’s iconic cast iron French braisers in our exclusive new color, Indigo. Perfect for slow cooking, simmering, sautéing, and baking, Le Creuset’s versatility and superior cooking performance make this cookware you will use every day.

Indigo is a much deeper and darker blue than the cobalt.
How many chicken breasts can I brown at the same time in the 3.5qt braiser? Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I brown chicken all the time in mine. I usually do chicken thighs, and I can get 5-8 in with room to brown depending on size. With breasts I would think you could do 5-6.
What is the weight of the 3.5 qt braiser?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Per Le Creuset ....11 Lbs and 14 oz
What are the inside dimensions of the 3.5 braiser ?
James R on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This was a gift for my daughter for Christmas I don't have the answer for your question sorry
Can this pan accommodate 8-10 veal shanks? For making osso bucco?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I imagine the 5qt braiser could hold that many veal shanks, but it would likely be a tight squeeze.
