This is a VERY RARE Le Creuset 5 Qt. Eggplant Dark Purple Cast Iron Dutch Oven Casserole. Very Large-17 including the handles. 8-3/4" across the widest area, 6-1/2" across the smaller area. Base is 4" deep and with the lid in place the dutch oven is 6-1/2" high.You could put a pretty good sized pork loin in this to roast or a very large casserole to feed a hungry group at church, family reunion, or sports banquet. Excellent used, pre-owned condition: Minimal, minimal use marks on the bottom of this pot, few scuffs, no major defects. I really don't see signs that there was ever food inside this item--all surfaces inside and outside are shiny--like new. Overall, very good condition and very well cared for.
Keep in mind that the light glares in the photos are from my camera and are not chips. This is oven, refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher safe, although, they are easily hand washable. Beside cooking in them, I love to use my Le Creuset cast iron casseroles to serve salads out of.
Chill the casserole in the freezer for a couple hours, then before serving, put the salad in it for keeping it chilled longer on that buffet table and for an absolutely beautiful presentation. You will get many positive comments for using this as a serving vessel. If you live in any other areas of the U.
