Does anyone have recent experience with warranty replacement on Le Creuset pots? Is the process still as good as it used to be?

 

I have one with an interior finish so dull that *everything* sticks to it. I have tried every damn trick from every website to try to fix it, and removed the black staining, but the surface is still beyond hope.

I had resigned myself to using it exclusively for bread baking, but would really prefer to have it back for cooking and get another Lodge combo cooker instead.

A couple of months back, I was watching a cooking show and the Le Creuset 6.75 quart round Dutch oven was being used.  I liked the lower sides, larger cooking surface than my 5.5 quart model, and the additional capacity, but didn't really need it.  I have an All-Clad D5 8-quart pot that serves quite well in this general size range.  However, Amazon had the Le Creuset on sale at an excellent price, and I do like Le Creuset pots, so I bit the bullet, pulled the trigger, and clicked the Buy option.  It'll be here on June 6th ...

Congratulations.   This is a good shape and size.  I hope you enjoy it like you stole it--which I think you did.

Oh that's a pretty color!

Thank you.  I wanted something to brighten the stovetop. All my other cookware is rather bland ... stainless, anodized aluminum, black.  Time for something more colorful.

Thank you. While this model Le Creuset was on sale, this particular color had an additional 11% off on Amazon, so the price was quite good. Add to that, an additional 6% credit from Amazon because I chose "Amazon Day Shipping."

It looks the same as the one I bought in France 45 years ago, except mine is the classic orange colour. I'd need to measure mine to be 100% sure but it's in my daughter's kitchen on the other side of the planet.
