Le Creuset Cobalt Blue Enameled Soup Pot Review

le-creuset-cobalt-blue-enameled-soup-potThe Le Creuset Caribbean Soup Pot is a gorgeous piece of cookware that you will be proud to take from oven direct to your table for serving. Made in France these pots are handcast by artisans so you are looking at a quality piece of cookware.

This soup pot is cast iron with an enamel coating so you get all the benefits of cast iron without the tedious problem of having to maintain it. This means you don’t have to season the pot nor do you have to be careful how to wash it in case you remove the seasoning. You also won’t get the problem of your cast iron rusting which can happen with bare cast iron.

What We Like

  • The enamel coating means that this is a really easy to clean piece of cookware.
  • I must admit that I love the color blue and this cobalt blue color really appeals to me.
  • It’s dishwasher safe.
  • This has a 101 year warranty so you can hand this one down to your kids.
  • Oven safe to 450F.
  • It works on the stove top or in the oven.
  • This is a very versatile pot as you can fry up your onions, garlic etc on the stove top and then add your other ingredients and cook over the flame. In other words, you don’t need to use two different pots or pans to make your soup.

What We Don’t Like

  • Cast iron is heavy so if you have weak muscles you may find it difficult to lift this pot.
  • Le Creuset cookware is not cheap but it is going to last you a lifetime so you have to think of it as an investment.

  • Clean up is relatively easy – just wipe down with a damp cloth or paper towel.

Wusthof Hollow Edge 8in Chefs Knife Review

wusthof-hollow-edge-8in-chefs-knifeWusthof are well known for the quality of their knives. This Wusthof Hollow Edge 8in Chefs knife is hand forged in Germany by skilled craftsmen. This is quality at its best.

The knife is made of high carbon steel and honed by hand and is made to be perfectly balanced.

The whole point of the hollow edge knife is to make it easier to cut paper thin slices of food. It stops food from sticking to the blade. So this makes it particularly good for cutting meat.

This knife received extremely good reviews on the net so it is definitely recommended.

What We Like

  • The handles are fully riveted for strength and durability.
  • The tang runs the full length of the knife. This is the sign of a good quality knife. (The tang is the part of the blade that runs into the handle.)
  • These are very sharp knives.
  • Lifetime warranty.

What We Don’t Like

  • This knife is not dishwasher safe.
  • This is a little expensive for a knife but if you are looking for quality then you will get it with this knife.
