I received a Le Creuset 12" skillet this Christmas after thoroughly enjoying last years xmas gift of the LC dutch oven. I have yet to try it out as I am debating if maybe the LC braiser/casserole wouldn't be a better choice. It seems many people on the Chow boards haven't been to happy with the LC cast iron skillets performance. I am looking for something to prepare eggs, pan sauces, and chicken dishes as a start. Any recommendations? Thank you.
