This review is from: Le Creuset Cast Iron Oval Oven with Reversible Grill Pan Lid, 4 3/4 quart, Oyster (Kitchen)
I bought this pot in order to bake artisan bread and I wanted to switch from round to oval loafs. I used a round Le Creuset 4.75 quart dutch oven before, and I was always stressed about burning my hands when placing the loaf into the 500 F hot pot. With this oven, I placed the loaf carefully into the lid and used the actual pot as the cover. It worked so much better! I baked a perfect loaf using a 9.8 inch oval banneton. Interestingly, this was the first time the bread had the desired chestnut brown crust color. Picture attached.
