Le Creuset

It wasn't long ago (think two weeks ago) that I couldn't say the phrase Dutch Oven without cracking up. Not that I support farting under blankets and forcing your loved ones to suffer in the odors. I just think it's funny. But now, I can't stop thinking about dutch ovens. the kitchen kind, not the fart kind.


I want a Le Creuset oven so bad it hurts. They come in a million great colors (I've got my heart set on Kiwi Green, as above), they last for-fucking-ever, and you can do loads of cool shit with them. You can bake bread in them, for God's sake. And!! Le Creuset is French, making it a French oven, so I won't think about gastrointestinal torture methods while I'm braising a delicious lamb shank or whatever. Bingo!!

Do any of you guys have dutch/french ovens? What do you make with them? Is it totally delicious? I want to know all about it.

yes, I have one and I know how to use it... In Ellensburg they actualy have a show on early morning called "dutch oven cookin". the only thing that I have ever cooked in mine however is stew, muffins and cobbler.But there has to be more to cook especially considering that there is a show dedicated to cooking with one.
Everytime I hear someone or even my self say dutch oven I do laugh a little, and that is the only reason I started to watch the show.

After thinking about it a little more, I beleive that once I did dutch oven you, and it was hilarious... although I doubt there has ever been a time I farted on someone and it wasn't funny.
