Le Creuset collection.

Hi all! my LC addiction is getting out of hand! I'm looking for support from other LC fans that I'm not the only one with a huge collection! How many is TOO MANY?!?!

  1. Hi, nbfoodie:

    This should gin up some interest...

    I've had many over the years, and IMHO, there are only two LC pieces worth paying for: (1) the 5.5L Dutch oven; and (2) the pate terrine.


    1. Dont feel bad...I have a similar Staub problem. I was able to stop at 4 pieces though...

      1. I don't know how many pieces of LeCreuset I have. don't want to hazard a guess.
        too many I do know that. but as they get well used and in a few cases abused (chipped, scratched, cracked, split) I give them up wherever, charity shop, tag sale.
        I'd rather they still be used albeit even if they're not perfect.
        I have many sizes and shapes.
        favorites are:
        3 1/2 qt
        5 qt
        7 qt
        15 1/2 qt Goose Pot
        ^^^which I've never used~too big for my kitchen sink but it's there for the day we redo this kitchen again or buy a new house with a huge barn sink.

        1. I have size 22, 24, and 26 rounds, size 26 and 30 skillets, and the large roaster, which I use mainly for crisps and cobblers in quantity and baked pasta dishes, as well as roasting a chicken on top of a pile of vegetables. I also like the au gratin dishes, which I use for smaller amounts of crisps, etc., and roasting some fish and veg for one.

            did you get those numbers from inside the lid of your pots? I love how they say their numbers but I can't firgure out what that means in mine. no matter I just look up the sizes.

            I didn't list all my pots and pan sizes, just my favorites.
            there are too many to list, my hand may fall off before finishing typing.

              It's the diameter in centimeters.

          2. Too many LC? Preposterous. The concept doesn't exist.
