So after weeks of contemplation, I finally took the plunge and splurged on the Godmother of all dutch ovens... ahem, French-ovens. Introducing....
Le Creuset's Enameled Cast Iron "French" Oven AKA Betty Boop Crocker
Betty is of the Le Creuset family and boasts a wam-bam figure of 10 x 10.8 x 4 inches ; 10.5 pounds holding up to 5.5 quarts...yep, she's a curvy little minx. Sporting a sexy, red enamel, Betty is perfect for all of your soups, meats, stews, casseroles and even baking needs due to versatility on top of the stove and inside the oven. Hand finished, Betty will allure anything and everything you place under her lid, creating delicious meals time after time. And best of yet, contrary to social stigmas, Betty is one sweet darling that only gets better with time and more usage. No wrinkles or sagging here! Take care of her, and she'll be taking care of you and yours for decades to come.
Betty will be a regular on buttermyjammy, so please acquaint yourselves
