Yes, our oldest son has been in a heavy metal band for several years. But only now have I become a true metal head. I have wanted one of these Le Creuset cast iron pots for a very long time but couldn’t justify the price tag. I’ve just purchased this one on ebay for a fraction of the cost of buying new. It appears to be in excellent condition. Can’t wait to put this baby to the test. And I can listen to it make music on the stove without me having to resort to earplugs!
