Description

HAND MADE 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.

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.

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.

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. The interior sand enamel is perfect for cooking with moisture, and 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 a secure grip, so you can easily transport the pot from stovetop to oven to table—even while wearing oven mitts.

5qt braiser
I really wanted this item. It was delivered with not a great finish on the enamel. Rough cast iron around the handle under the enamel coating. finish on lid was not smooth as you would expect from Le Creuset. I returned it. Not the quality I expected.

The Braiser is the best cookware to sear meat and then slow-cook it in the oven. Le Creuset is one of the best brands. Plus this sale was hard to beat!

What is difference between the braiser and the buffet casserole dish? Both state..."perfect for searing, braising, slow cooking and more." The casserole has a glass top and this has a solid. What is the difference?!?!?
sarah e on Sep 19, 2016
Le Creuset Signature Braiser, 5 qt.
Le Creuset Signature Braiser, 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 glass lid will not hold heat in the same way that cast iron does. The cast iron allows you to pan-roast on your stove top because it circulates that heat. Glass lids do not do this.
What are the dimensions of the 3 1/2 qt braiser?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Diameter 11 1/2" Height 5"
I want to braise short ribs for 6 to 8 people, what size Braiser do I need?
Christine S on Dec 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Go with the 5qt. I have a 3qt & it was barely large enough the last time I used it & I did 2lbs.
What are the dimensions of the 1 1/2 qt. braiser?
Michelle L on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 3.4 inches x 9.6 inches x 7.8 inches
I'm trying to decide if I would get a braised or a skillet. Can they do similar things? I like the idea of a lid! Please advise

Le Creuset® Cherry Cast Iron Skillets
Le Creuset® Cherry Cast Iron Skillets
BEST ANSWER: I happen to have both a braiser and a skillet. While all Le Creuset is fantastic, I do prefer the braiser with the lid over the skillet. I prefer the cream colored interior over the black for my cooking needs. I got the smaller braiser and it is bigger than you think and is a great cooking vessel. My Le Creuset is amazing and I'm sure you will love it as well.
Is the knob on the lid oven safe?
Dolly B on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Dolly,
Yes, because the piece is a braiser, it is designed to go into the oven and stay covered with the kid so the knob is indeed over safe. Hope this helps. We use nothing but Le Creuset cast iron pieces and they are great. Can't recommend them highly enough.

CAN I PUT LE CREUSET SKILLET IN DISHWASHER?

IN DISHWASHER
A shopper on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. However, it is very easy to clean by hand. I have actually owned mine for around 15 years (the one from Sur la Table was for my daughter) - it has been in the dishwasher innumerable times and hand washed the same number - surface is still smooth and it still works just fine. I have not run it under "scrub" mode - just "normal".
Can the braised be used for stir frying?
Melissa D on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have not but as long as you use wooden spatulas Think it would work well I use my braiser about every day!
would the 1 1/2 braiser be big enough to cook for one person?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: IF you plan on cooking a single portion at a time. I bought the largest one because I like having two or three days on hand so I don't have to cook every day. These are shallow so the food is spread out over the bottom of the pan. If you are browning in that pan you need to make sure you aren't crowding the food and steaming it instead. I would never buy under 3 quart pans.
Can this be used to cook eggs on the stove top, do eggs stick a lot if you are scrambling with cheese, ? need to get away from non stick, thank you
A shopper on Feb 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you could use the LeCreuset to cook eggs. I suggest you use both butter and a tiny bit of vegetable oil in the pan before you put in your eggs. The pan takes a little time to heat up but then it can get very hot quickly. Never put your LeCreuset in the dishwasher.
How heavy is it? With and without the lid?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With the lid, you’d basically have to be pumping iron at the gym everyday to lift it. Not too bad without the lid and I’m a petite 120 lbs using this everyday.
I know the knob can withstand 500 degree. If I do not use the lid, what is the maximum temperature that this pan can handle? I think I will use it in the broiler some time, and 500 degree seems to be low for a broiler.
A shopper on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From what I understand to high a temperature can damage these enamel braisers. You are not suppose to heat on high heat according to the booklet that came with mine.
I noticed that the Marseille color seems to be in two different shades of blue, how can I be sure I will get the darker Blue to coordinate with my other pieces?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No two pieces are exactly alike, however, the Marseille pieces will all coordinate with each other.
