Don't know leh. Not sure whether it will be useful or not. Don't want to add another white elephant to the kitchen. Maybe mummies like you can advise how useful they are? I have not used any of these at all.

I have more than 16 coupons already. Do you want them? I can give them to you.



I dun think I want the enameled cast iron. Prefer the raw cast iron, easily to take care. I got no patience with can't wash immediately cookware :lol:

These are shd b of decent quality even though their profile may be lower than most brands

Had 2 Le creuset and decided not to buy anymore.

1) They are so heavy to wash.
2) Not washer (machine) friendly
3) The edges rusts if not use in awhile
4) The interior stains badly and difficult to remove even with their cleaners

The plus point is it retains it's temperature well. I use it now for deep frying LOL!

I only use stainless steel pots now because it's the safest.

1) Aluminium they say contributes to dementia
2) Teflon they say cause cancer


Don't know to believe or not.


Hi ladies,
If you are considering to get the cast iron ware like me, I like to share dasalo's comments by quoting her post on Imami's home. After reading it, I have decided not to buy any.

Cast iron wares r easy to maintain if it is used for daily cooking.

If buy for making a particular dish once in the while, then no point.

In fact, I am looking for a suitable raw cast iron ware, eg Lodge Logic, not the enameled kinds.
