A Pot that Pours! Review of the Le Creuset 1-1/4-Quart Precision Pour Saucepan

My friends and I don’t call it my “Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour Saucepan.” We all call it “the little orange pot with the pouring thingie.”

The Pouring Thingie of the Le Creuset 1-1/4-Quart Precision Pour Saucepan

I don’t know what took me so long to find this kind of pot, but I was in my 40s before I realized that there are cooking vessels made in the world that don’t necessarily spatter hot water/soup/gravy/sauce/custard every time you try to decant liquid from them. Yes, there are some pots – like this “Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour Saucepan.” – from which you can remove food without use of a ladle! That feature – the pouring lip – means not having to use a soup ladle or a small cup to dip out the contents of the pot, and that alone makes it worth buying. I make flan pretty often and pouring it into the little separate bowls for serving used to be a messy and difficult task – now it’s a cinch.

Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour SaucepanAlong with that cool feature come the usual Le Creuset hallmarks: the lifetime guarantee, the dishwasher-safe factor, the fact that it’s fine in an oven up to 350 degrees, and the gorgeousness of it. All of my Le Creuset stuff is in the classic orange color (a.k.a. ‘flame’) that I started out with, years ago, but this pot comes in a rainbow of colors, including lovely cassis (kind of lavender) and soleil (nice medium yellow, not too bright).

What Good Heat Distribution of the Le Creuset 1-1/4-Quart Precision Pour Saucepan Means to Me

Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour SaucepanI feel as if I’ve actually learned a lot about cooking from using these pots. For instance, before I used Le Creuset I routinely used high heat for cooking most things. With Le Creuset, though, I use the maximum heat only for boiling water (such as for pasta) or if I need to reduce something fast. Otherwise, because the enameled cast iron distributes heat so well, I use a medium or a low heat for everything. I think this is a sign of quality in a pot – and it does ensure that I never burn anything. Also, if I cook something and leave the fitted lid in place, it retains heat nicely until serving time.

One my elderly friends are not so crazy about the “Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour Saucepan.”, because it’s a bit heavy. Well, there’s no denying that it is hefty: this 1 ¼ quart vessel weighs 7 pounds. But it seems well designed, with a main and a second handle (opposite the main one), and I don’t mind the weight. In fact, other kinds of pots and bakeware seem kind of flimsy to me now!

5.0 out of 5 stars worth every penny, December 8, 2012
By Manuel Antonio Arce Arenales “MAAA” (San Jose, Costa Rica)
This review is from: Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour Saucepan, Cherry (Kitchen)
You simply won’t need any other 1-1/4 saucepan. It is superior to both stainless steel and Teflon (such as Circulon) in that it heats evenly with minimal heat (do not use above medium setting) and is practically non-stick. The design is superb: pouring is accomplished with very little to no dripping. It retains heat in a way that far outperforms aluminum or stainless steel.
5.0 out of 5 stars New addition to an old collection, December 8, 2012

This review is from: Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 1-1/4-Quart Iron Handle Precision Pour Saucepan, Fennel (Kitchen)
I have been an avid user of Le Creuset for over 20 years. They have really improved their design recently. The long handle is wide enough and flat enough to set a spoon on it yet still ergonomically correct so that it is easy to lift despite its being cast iron. I use this size pot as a small stock pot, as it makes about 4-6 servings of soup. The cast iron design is impeccable – heating the food evenly. And the color is a beautiful shade of green that goes well with my French blue stock pot from 20 plus years ago. It also goes well with my Caribbean blue saucier pan I bought last year. I wouldn’t use anything else.
