A decent pot for stews and casseroles

We have had a habitat cooking pot for years now but after a few burning episodes, the non stick is no longer non sticking. I'd like to invest in a good pot that we can use on the hob and in the oven, if such a thing exists.
Any ideas?

I use Le Cruset, but it is pricey.

we use a giant stainless steel saucepan, one with a small handle either side, so fits nicely in the oven.

i would love a big crockpot though

finances don't stretch to le cruset! thisisyesterday, don't you find food gets stuck?

if i just do it on the hob it can do yes, it's fine if you stir it now and again, but sticks if you leave it while dumplings cook.
but now i just start it all on the hob then get oven nice and hot and stick it in there while the dumplings cook and not had a problem at all

Amazon stock alternatives to Le Creuset called Chasseur which are pretty amazing and half the price. I've got a couple of those and they've been fantastic. Have a look on there, they often have them on special offers as well.

I would second a cast iron enamelled pot, seals really well and last forever. If you are down south, le creuset have a warehouse sale twice a yr in Andover, bargains a plenty ( at least relatively but le creuset never cheap...). Chasseur are fab and I think tesco do a version too, probably the cheapest option.
