I hope this enamelled cast iron pot browns onions better for Indian cooking. I was using stainless pans before which took so long. This was $24.99 in Aldi USA if anyone in the US is looking for one. I don’t know if this brand is in Aldi UK or how good it is yet but it looks well made.

With case iron you do not need as much heat to do your cooking because the cast iron will hold the heat. I also bake bread in my round casserole and the results are very good. Get used to using it and you will enjoy it for a long time.

Thank you @boo for your advice that’s great and about the dishwasher I will stay away from it. 💞

Hello @traceyross cast iron pots have existed for centuries, whereas stainless steel has existed only for hundred years. An old cooking ustensil. My grandmother had one in 1910. The heat is equally distributed in the iron cast and the result is fantastic. But you should not put it in a dishwasher. A very good idea of your part to buy one. Our daughter even bakes her bread in one! You won’t regret it!!

Thank you @Jo Dunn good to know they last a while. I’m hoping my little bargain lasts, it looks good. You are lucky having a little collection they must take pride in your kitchen.

Thank you @Arthur vdH for your advice. I’ve never used this type of pot before. I’ll keep your tip in mind it must of been quite scary dropping it.

I hope this turns out well for you, Tracey. Great price and a real beauty too! I have to admit to owning 8 original Le Creuset casseroles, pots, pans and frying pans for at least thirty years! They've been amazingly good value for money. 😊💕 @traceyross

Those cast iron pots are the bee’s knees for any dish that needs to simmer. I own a big and a small Le Creuset. Expensive yes, but they’ve been serving me for over two decades now and I love ‘em. Just one tip: don’t drop the lid onto anything hard. I fractured mine doing that. Really nasty shards …

Looks good to me, and better priced than Le Creuset
