I can’t say enough about certain tools in my kitchen. My number one go-to for making dinner every night? My Le Creuset pans and French ovens. The consistent heat distribution, the ability to go from stove top to oven, and, probably needless to say: the beautiful colors!

Okay, so maybe it’s a little girlie. I’m not usually a girlie girl. But I just love having different colored Le Creuset pots, pans, and French ovens in my kitchen. The rainbow of colors makes me smile while I cook.

I am *really* digging their latest color creation: Ocean. Smokey teals, greys and blues come through in this color that are as calming as they are beautiful.

Le Creuset sent me their deep saute pan for review. The first thing that struck me was the beautiful Ocean color. I think it’s my favorite yet. The second thing that struck me was the versatility of this pan. I mean, it goes without saying that the Le Creuset pans can go from the stove-top to the oven to the table. But this saute pan can be used to make anything from slow braised meat to beautiful pan sauces.

The heat conduction is perfect. The non-stick enamel means that the short ribs I was braising got a perfect sear, but didn’t stick to the pan, and I used hardly any cooking oil. The size of the pan is versatile too. It’s just right for making a meal for Brian and me, or more when we’ve got guests. While it has weight, it’s not too heavy to handle easily.

Wouldn’t you just love to have one of these Le Creuset Signature 4 1/4-Qt Deep Saute Pans in Ocean for yourself?
