Can anyone recommend a good casserole dish. Using a smallish round Le Creuseut at the moment (maybe 20-24cm) and it's just tooo small for 4-6 people. Somthing suitable for oven & hob - maybe analon? Any suggestions are all they all much of a muchness? TIA

I've got one of their stockpots Okapi and they're great cos sooo easy to clean. Just wondering whether much difference between analon & stainless steel when it comes to the crunch? Advs of one over the other etc. Heck, you'd think I was buying a car, not a casserole pan!!

I've got a flameproof pyrex one which is pretty good.

purpleturtle ... probbably a dumb question but can you use it on the hob??

see here

5th pic down:- we've got the shallow one and the deep one

we have pyrex ones as well, but you can't use them to brown the meat obviously. Have never tried Le Creuset

I have the bigger le creuseut which serves six easily. Got in a sale and wouldn't be without it! They are expensive normally though.

Yes you can use it on the hob - but only because it's a 'flameproof' one. Not just any old pyrex casserole dish, you know

crosse dpost with you pt - yet we only have ordinary pyrex

how about a bigger oval le creuset (I love mine) check amazon they usually have half-price deals
