It’s not always an easy decision, figuring out whether or not to purchase pricey cookware. (I’m speaking from experience here.) How much of a difference can it really make, right? The answer, it turns out, is huge, but it all hinges on finding the right piece for your kitchen and shopping from the right brand. Le Creuset is an all-time favorite of many of my Kitchn teammates — it’s iconic for a reason — and with their robust number of pieces, you’re bound to land on one that best suits your needs. Maybe it’s the mini cocotte for your small space, or it could be the spacious Dutch oven if you usually cook for a bunch of people. Either way, you can be confident that your cash will be well spent.

I just came across a versatile gem that’s bound to work in everyone’s kitchen. The reviews certainly suggest so. Exclusive to QVC, Le Creuset’s 3.5-quart, glass-lidded pot is over 15% off, and the retailer has a number of other promos going on that make it an even greater steal. For one, first-time customers can use the code WELCOMEQ15 for an extra $15 off, while second-timers can use HELLO10 for $10 off. Last but not least, if you purchase it this coming Sunday, you’ll get free shipping.

What Is the Le Creuset 3.5-Quart Cast-Iron Chef’s Soup Pot w/ Glass Lid?

Despite its long-enduring popularity, Le Creuset’s Dutch oven brings concerns most often related to its hefty size (and price tag). In fact, even though it topped our Best List, former editor Riddley said that was its main downside. Alternatively, this soup pot shaves off several pounds due to its glass lid and more compact size, which is ideal for smaller portions. Shoppers love it for that reason, and the fact that the lid makes it easier to monitor your food while it cooks. It fits tightly on top, circulating steam and keeping the moisture locked inside. 

Despite its name, this pot can handle more than just soup — you can braise, bake, fry, and roast in it. The cast-iron body results in quick heating that’ll keep the contents warm for a longer period of time, and the enamel interior is stain-resistant and releases food easily. That’s one of the factors that makes it a great serving dish, in addition to the large handles.

What QVC Shoppers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.7/5

“I am very happy with the color and love the glass lid, especially since it makes it not as heavy. It arrived in perfect condition. I made a pot of chili, and it came out perfectly on just medium heat. I will make homemade cream of mushroom soup in it next. It is great size for a family of 1-4. I have always had pots and pans that had to eventually be thrown away, due to nonstick peeling off, warping, etc. I am looking forward to this vessel lasting many many years.” — AprilWine

“Love the vented top, no more spillovers if I’m busy with something else. Easy cleanup, no sticking. Keeps food hot ready for seconds. Looks pretty on your table. I want a second one. This is a great size, not small, not too big.” — douglas

“Great size with glass lid. The weight of this is perfect for my not so strong hands. The size is great for a single person trying to cook smaller portions. The artichaut color is beautiful.” — jawr2710

Mark my words; you’ll end up using this piece every day, and it’ll earn its place on your stovetop in no time. It’s available in Le Creuset’s stunning Artichaut green color, as well as an orange-red, black, blue, and ivory, so you’ll actually want to leave it out on display, too. QVC is the only place you can buy the soup pot right now, so make sure you take advantage of the sale price and discount codes!
