This depends on the type of cooking you usually do. Le Creuset's enameled cast iron Dutch oven is the most popular piece for a reason. It is exceptionally versatile, durable, produces superior results, and comes in many sizes. For searing and sauteing, stainless steel is a popular choice. For everyday ease of use, you might like nonstick cookware. And for baking, stoneware is a good choice.

How do I know that Le Creuset will not discontinue a color once I start collection cookware in that color?

Le Creuset does occasionally retire colors, however, they may be found for some time afterward on our website. We also feel that other Le Creuset colors can create an appealing color combination.
