Unlike a Dutch oven or sauté pan, the sauteuse has sloped sides and a rounded base, making it easy to get into corners with a spatula. Essential for searing, sauteing and stir-frying. Perfect for making meals like risotto. Ideal for creating creamy mushroom or tomato sauce. Its wide base is great for browning meats on the stovetop before braising or roasting in the oven. Its dome-shaped lid locks in flavor by generating heat circulation. And its classic cast iron design has a shock-resistant exterior that prevents chipping and cracking, and a smooth interior that prevents sticking and stains. To top it off, this king of the kitchen is still available in seven gorgeous colors: the on-sale Cerise and Flame, as well as Indigo, Licorice, Meringue, Marseille blue and Deep Teal. (Act fast if you want to snag one in your favorite hue.)

And customers are hungry for the sauteuse. Said one who titled their review, "Worth. Every. Penny.": "It serves every purpose we need. Frying? Check. Baking? Check. General Cooking? Check. It's wonderful! This is a great midsize for two-three people and it's not too large."

This reviewer wrote, "Solid construction, color and craftsmanship, very easy to clean, and distributes cooking heat evenly. Beautiful cookware. Looks great on the countertop!" And this cook agreed that it's as sumptuous as the meals it prepares. "This sauteuse is my first piece of Le Creuset, and it's absolutely amazing! It's so easy to clean and stunning to look at. It's inspired me to get back in the kitchen and cook more. I highly recommend it as it's so versatile."

This fan plans to bequeath her sauteuse as an heirloom. "A beautiful accessory for my kitchen as well as a workhorse for cooking! I love the size, which is perfect for my one-person household. My grandchildren will fight over this when I’m gone!" Bon appétit!
