Like all Le Creuset cast-iron products, it is hand-cast in a one-of-a-kind sand mold and hand-finished at the Le Creuset factory in France. --Fred Brack

Cooking with this is HEAVEN!, By Books Galore

I purchased the 7 1/4 qt. round french oven in Marseille. The color was even better than any pictures I had seen. The french oven is a dream to cook with. I've used it on top of the stove and in the oven. It's a breeze to clean up which has made me love it even more. I use it so much that I now keep it out on my stove top. It looks as good as it cooks. My only regret? I wish I had invested in this a long time ago.
Great addition to a cook's kitchen, By Ellen E. Sheldon

This is a great addition to my kitchen. One of the main reasons I purchased this product was to make the artisan bread recipe that is floating out there on the web (although i think it is a Le Creuset recipe). The Dutch oven performed beautifully and I had an amazing loaf of crusty bread when I finished and hardly any clean-up to the oven. I will be baking bread regularly and will certainly use it for stews, soups, etc. Well worth the $!
