I was hesitant to buy these pots but am so happy I did! I bought both the sizes and absolutely love them.
Cooking curries in these are perfect, retains heat for a very long time. I got them in Palm and the colour is beautiful!
If there was a bigger size, I would get that also, although do not be fooled by the size of these balti pots- they are larger than you would think they are.

I have a lot of LC and mainly got this to use in a Breville oven as my other pieces are too large to fit. The 3QT Balti fits perfect; any larger and it would have been too big. Now I want the 2QT version as well. I have already used this for steaks, chops and soups both on the stovetop and in the oven with no problems. It did seem to have a rough cooking surface before washing it the first time but it was not evident while being used. After drying it, the roughness was still there but seems less with each use. I get a lot of use from smaller LC items and this is definitely no exception.

I recently started learning to cook Indian food but could not find a kadai (traditional heavy steel Indian wok) anywhere. I ended up buying one of these in soleil as a substitute. It's so pretty and the le creuset quality is unbeatable. Size-wise this is just right--not too large and not too small. Just ordered a second in flame. Can't wait for it to arrive!

I use this so often, to brown meat, make sauces, combine casserole ingredients and pop into the oven. I love the shape and the color. I am going to order the smaller one next. I'd like a 4-Quart as well, do they make one that size? It's tough as nails, easy to clean and a real multi-tasker.

I bought the smaller version of this, and found it to be so versatile, I went back for this one.
I often use both pans at the same time, and like another reviewer remarked, find myself reaching for one or the other on a daily basis. I particularly like the high sides which aid cooking at lower temperatures, and also the weight. Not exactly lightweight, but not a body-building exercise either. Clean-up is easy, as over time mine have developed a "patina" and hardly anything sticks to them. I would recommend them highly.

I'm surprised how many times I've used this since I purchased it. I reach for it almost daily. The taller sides produce less mess on my stove top, I can brown beautifully at a lower temperature, very little sticks to the surface, and the color is just beautiful. It's not overly heavy, either. I'm so glad I took a chance on this piece.

Do not let the description fool you! I am using this dish almost everyday! Reheating pasta, scrambled eggs, browning meat, etc. I have many pieces from Le Creuset, but this one may very well be my favorite! Fits my Jennair ceramic cooktop perfectly! I got the blue color and it is stunning! No cook should be without this piece!
