Thanks for the advice. At this point, I don't cook much, but am anxious to start. I've heard the skillets aren't very good and think I'll exchange those.

Thanks a lot. So can all the french oven pieces be used in the oven for casseroles and on the stove top as well to cook soup, rice, pasta, etc?

Clearly I'm clueless but am so grateful for the advice as I start to learn.

Thank you so much for the advice! I'll look for that recipe in the Jack Bishop Cookbook. Would you say that the 7.25 qt isn't really necessary? I don't cook a ton and it's just me and my husband.

Newly married with lots of le Creuset - Which pieces should I keep?

I'm newly married and received a number of le creuset pieces as wedding gifts. The problem is I'm not sure what to use them all for. I've seen a lot of suggestions to use the dutch ovens for cooking roasts, or meat. However, I'm a vegetarian. Are the french oven pieces even going to be useful to me considering I do not cook meat? Please help! Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.

French Oven Pieces: I have the 3.5, 5.5 and 7.25 round french oven pieces. Do I need them all? And if so, for what? Maybe I should just keep the 3.5 and 5.5 size pieces?

Every Day Pans: I have the 1.25 qt which I love. I also have the 3.5 qt. Will this piece be more practical than the french oven?

Skillet: I want to like this piece, as I tend to do a lot in a frying pan. Is this piece worth it?

Thanks a lot. I'm a novice in the kitchen and am excited to experiment but don't want to be stuck with tons of things I'll never use.
