One of the best Le Creuset items acts like a skillet, baking pan and serving dish all in one. The shallow cooking surface of this oval roasting pan is ideal for stovetop cooking or baking in the oven. Ingredients are more exposed to heat, making it easier to achieve a crispy top and evenly cooked inside. Plus, it sits pretty on the tabletop, too.
