    I absolutely LOVE mine! It's fantastic for risottos etc, and any casseroles that you start on the stove and then move to the oven. It cooks really evenly, hence it being great for risotto (which I love). I'm making a sousage goulash in mine tonight, easy and yum!

    If you need particular recipes, sing out

    I use my Le Cruset pans a lot, I think they are simialr (big heavy cast iron?)

    I use mine for everything that needs to be browned off and then cooked for a long time........bolognaise, soups, casseroles etc......

    They are brilliant as you can use them on the stove top and transfer to the oven....

    I am soooo jealous... I have a $50 house voucher that I'm going to use to get a nice french cast enamel pot

    I don't have any specifi recipes, but if you think about anything you cook that needs browning/sauteing/frying, and then needs slow cooking, that is an ideal recipe for a cast iron pan

    ie Casserole: brown the meat and the onions in the cast iron pan, add the liquid and veggies and transfer to the oven

    Anything you would use a slow cooker/crockpot for, same deal.....

    The only other one I can think of is Toad in the Hole, where you cook the sausages first, on the stove top, pour over the batter and pop it into a hot oven for 20 mins.......

    Ooh, toad in the hole, haven't had that for years Lucy!

    Princess, I'm going out shortly, but I'll try to get on when I'm home and post you some recipes. Oh, and Lucy's right, they're great for soups!

    Here is a quick one - will try and post more later
    Get your butcher to cut a leg of lamb into 3 pieces, cut through the bone. Brown these in your pot on the stovetop, then pour over 1/2 cup olive oil, 1 cup of wine, 1 cup of stock (chicken or beef stock is best) and add 3 cloves of crushed garlic, a few rosemary branches and 2 oinions peeled and cut in half. Then slow roast in the oven (lid on) for at least 2 hours at 150 degrees.
