唔覺唔覺,拎晒出黎曬冷先發現原來都買落左唔少Le Creuset,可以話係入坑不淺了。特別呢1年黎LC勁做減價,唔小心經過又跌左錢 ………

其實一開初只有Tiara有留意開LC,Terence只係覺得依個brand好女性化,又只係得個樣,基本上係一笑置之,嗤之以鼻,都係用傳統中式廚具最好。咁點解會開始左買第一個LC?

We didn’t realize before but when we took out the whole collection we possess, we have to admit that we are a bit addictive to Le Creuset.

Actually in the beginning it was only Tiara who was interested in LC. Terence thought the products are feminine and not practical at all so he didn’t think it’s a good idea to buy anything from the brand. Chinese cookware is the most pragmatic and the best. So why did we buy our first LC?

故事由依個22cm既媽咪鍋開始。話說Tiara由中學開始已經睇鬼嫁料理手帳,鬼嫁都係好鍾意用LC,所以就耳濡目染下,Tiara一路睇一路夢想第時要搵個有錢既老公去俾自己建立一個LC珍藏王國。

結果Tiara嫁左俾無乜錢既Terence。為左開展建立LC珍藏王國既大計,Tiara唯有不斷向Terence薰陶LC既好處,希望可以大家夾到錢買。其中一個說服到Terence都肯出錢買第一個LC既原因就係佢既實用性,因為佢鍋身厚,鎖熱能力強,而且重重既鍋蓋令佢更容易鎖住食物水份,所以好適合炆野,甚至有種因而衍生出黎既「無水蒸」煮法,可以令食物整完出黎更多汁好味。

因為佢既實用性(當然更大原因係Tiara既威逼利誘),Terence都肯夾錢,買左第一個LC媽咪鍋,而試過Tiara煮既無水蒸腐乳雞翼之後,Terence都入左坑,慢慢就開始左小夫妻買LC既不歸路了。

The Le Creuset collection story began with this 22cm Marmite. Since secondary school, Tiara has been a fan of Hong Kong cooking blogger using a lot of LC in her recipes. Imbued with such content throughout years, Tiara always dreamed of having a rich husband in the future to support her to build a kingdom of LC collection.

However, Tiara ended up married to Terence who is quite broke. In order to kick start her ambition of building up a LC collection kingdom, Tiara needed to persuade Terence to share the cost. Tiara tried to convince Terence by arguing that the LC cookware is actually very functional. The thick material used in a LC pot provides the pot with excellent heat insulation capability. The heavy lid also helps locking water inside the pot. These features make the pots idea for stewing food and even derive a cooking method called “waterless steaming” which can make the food extra succulent.

It’s because of the functionality (and of course some intimidation by Tiara) that persuaded Terence to agree on paying a part for the first Le Creuset Marmite. After trying Waterless Steamed Chicken Wings with Fermented Bean Curd made by Tiara, there’s nothing to say by Terence but to allow Tiara to continue her journey of Le Creuset collection.

我地大部份鍋內膽都係白琺瑯塗層(白裡),令依隻鑄鐵鍋唔洗好似中式生鐵鑊咁要成日用油養住。多數媽咪鍋都係黑琺瑯塗層(黑裡),加上個底有少少弧度好似中式鑤咁,所以主要用黎爆炒多。但由於我地呢隻係白裡,所以平時都當佢係普通圓形鍋用。呢款白裡而家都應該絕版了haha,所以都唔特別搵佢既spec放係度了。

For most of our Le Creuset collection they have white interior made up of enamel so we don’t need to brush a layer of oil on the interior surface to prevent it from getting rusted. Marmite is also available in black enamel interior and with its curvy design of the bottom, it’s ideal for stir-frying food. Yet the one we have here is with white interior. We normally use it like a round Casserole. This white interior version should have now discontinued haha so we are not going to find its spec and post it here.

自從買左個媽咪鍋,連Terence都見識過Le Creuset既實用性之後,Tiara將屋企既Le Creuset勢力擴張似乎已經變得不可逆轉。好快Tiara就以「buffet用黎無水蒸好d呀」作為理由,買左依個22cm Buffet Casserole…

After buying the Marmite, Terence learned about the functionality of Le Creuset. Tiara’s ambition of expanding the Le Creuset collection at our home has then become irreversible. Soon, Tiara said that this 22cm Buffet Casserole is ideal for waterless steaming and so she also bought it back home…

同媽咪鍋/圓形鍋分別就只係佢比較淺,所以整無水蒸菜式時,成煲上菜會比較好睇(好似已經開始超越左實用性既考慮)。但除左無水蒸,用黎煮d一鍋過嘅菜式都好適合,麻婆豆腐清酒煮蜆

The difference with a Marmite / Round Casserrole is its shallow body. For food cooked by waterless steaming it will look nicer (functionality isn’t in considerable anymore). After from waterless steaming, we may also use this for pot dishes like Mapo Tofu and Clams in Sake.

之後咁岩我地屋企個電飯煲GG左。係物色新電飯煲個陣,Tiara話根本可以用Le Creuset黎煲飯,而且仲好食過用平價電飯煲煮出黎既飯,價錢又比一個靚既電飯煲平D,所以就說服埋Terence購入依個圓形鍋。

It turned out that our rice cooker was broken. When we were looking for a new one, Tiara said that we could actually use Le Creuset as rice cooker. The rice it cooks is better than that using a normal rice cooker and the price of it is even a bit cheaper. That’s why we also added this Round Casserole into our Le Creuset Collection.

利用佢鎖熱鎖水力強既特性,煮出黎d飯做到同粒粒分明既效果,個原理似用日式土鍋黎煲飯咁。除左煲飯,我地有時都會用佢黎煮下湯。

Utilising its advantage of heat insulation and water preserving, the rice cooked by this Round Casserole is plump in texture and less gluey. The mechanism behind is like using a Japanese earthenware pot. Apart from cooking rice, we also use this for making soup occasionally.

呢個係呢幾年新出嘅琺瑯鋼鍋,同普通既不鏽鋼湯煲無分別,不過佢同圓形鍋一齊做combo sale,顏值又高,所以Tiara就有藉口買埋佢返黎了。原本覺得無乜用,但用黎煲2人份嘅湯/粥大細岩岩好,所以都好常用。

This Enamel On Steel Casserole is available in recent years. Functionally we don’t think there is any difference with a normal stock pot. But it was in combo sale with the Round Casserole and it is quite good looking so Tiara has a reason to add it into our Le Creuset collection. The size is quite good for making soup/ congee for 2 so we use it quite often.

佢都係用琺瑯塗層,清洗時記住唔好用百潔布擦佢。

It is enamel interior as well. Make sure you don’t clean it with scouring pad.

基本鍋具都買完之後,Tiara既擴張策略就轉左向一d特色用具度,而Terence已經對依個屋企入面既潮流再無抵抗之力。依個Le Creuset Skillet Grill Pan係越買越專既例子。因為佢係黑裡,要用油黎養住佢避免生銹。樓下有條link講講我地第一次用佢既經歷。

So we have some basic cookware in place. The next step of Tiara’s Le Creuset collection expansion strategy is to buy some niche cookware and Terence has no say anymore to resist this trend taking place at home. This Le Creuset Skillet Grill Pan is an example of buying specialized cookware. It has black interior and we need to keep it unrusted by brushing a layer of oil on the pan. There is a link below to share our first experience of using the pan.

當然唔少得其他既杯杯碟碟。依對杯係Tiara同事慶祝我地新婚既禮物。依對杯而我地日日都用緊。

Of course we have other tableware. This pair of cups is our newlywed gift from Tiara’s colleagues. We use them everyday.

仲有貓貓既碗碗碟碟…

有次Terence洗碗整崩左隻碗,受到左嚴厲既懲罰。

There was a time Terence broke the bowl while washing dishes. He received severe punishment for that.

We also have small items like sauce plates

當然唔少得其他既碗呀碟呀,其實都有個好處係可以令平平無奇既一個菜式,睇上去靚好多。

And other collection of bowls and plates. Using theses tableware to serve the food can indeed beatify the whole dish. That’s also an advantage we like.

由追求實用開始到慢慢鍾意左佢既精緻美感,就係咁,我地依家就入左Le Creuset既坑之中,雖然未算得上入得好深,但可見既將來應該會越走越深,一條不歸路啊!不過,開心就得啦!

Our Le Creuset journey began with pragmatism and evolved into aesthetics pursuit. Now we are heading to a road to Le Creuset collection with no return. But we are happy about that!
