How much is this product at Myer?

Let me Google that for you: https://www.myer.com.au/search?query=Le%20Creuset%20Casserole

As of writing it's $619 at Myer. Which is why you should check out places like Peter's Of Kensington or Teddingtons or anywhere else your Google Fu takes you.

Note: The item I reviewed had a phenolic (black) knob which could only withstand up to 180°C in an oven. The newer versions of this pan seem to have metal knobs ... which can go higher. This is good but realistically you probably shouldn't be cooking things that hot in this pan.

Note 2: There is a new phenolic knob available that can withstand up to 250°C.

Oh, and a further note ... check out Staub pans. They are the best cast iron pans I've ever used and the only ones I will consider moving forward. I have a review here:

Update since review ... Staub still going strong: perfect condition. Has not missed a beat and has never let me down (unlike Chasseur et al).

So this review is supposed to be on Le Creuset Buffet Casserole - but you say several times you are referring to your Chasseur buffet pan? Which do you have?

Hi,

I wrote that review a long time ago ... it was for a Chasseur pan and I don't know why it's on the LC product page. Weird!

LC is much better than Chasseur (better construction, more enamel layers etc). It's also "premium" branding so it will murder your wallet.

My tip is to look for Staub pans. They are top notch and you can get them on crazy discounts if you look hard enough (hint: Peter's of Kensington). I've had a red Staub 24cm cocotte nearly 18 years. Used it 700+ times and it still looks brand new. This is not the case with my Chassuer pans.

I have had other Staub pans 10+ years and all are still magnificent but the 24cm is the workhorse. I would replace it in a heartbeat if it were stolen.
