Emile Henry - Poterie Culinaire

A month ago I talked to you about Emile Henry and their amazing ceramic cookware. I must tell you that this French company is amazing! All of their cook ware items are of high quality.

Besides getting the amazing opportunity of reviewing their Pizza Stone I also got the chance of reviewing their Stewpot aka Dutch Oven.

Flame Round Dutch Oven / Stewpot, 2.6 qt,Figue

To start with, I received a purple, aka Figue, stewpot, so there goes extra brownie points towards Emile Henry! But not only are their color selection is great but the stewpot itself is awesome.

The stewpot, which is part of the Emile Henry Flame® line, thanks to its new ceramic technology, can be used in all types of stove tops (electric, halogen, gas), oven, microwave, and all types of barbeque grills. You can always go the safe way and wash it by hand or throw it in the dishwasher! Just remember to never put a hot stewpot on top of a cold surface or it will crack.

I have never been a soup kind of person. I avoid soups if possible. Specially stews. So we use our stewpot for making potato soup. Which is my husband’s recipe, I still have to give my mom’s a try.

The stewpot heats a little bit slower than a usual pot which means it will cook evenly. And the best part about it is that it will keep your food hot for more than two hours. If you don’t believe me you should ask my husband who 2 hours after we had dinner he went to put the stewpot in the fridge and he burnt himself! Food won’t spoil if you leave it in the pot for more than 2 hours, it is still warm and safe.

We really like our stewpot. One of this days I will ask my mother in law to make some stew. Gotta venture into new things, right?
