with potato-leek soup.
As you all know, we have a crappy electric stove and even worse, warped pots and pans with the thickness of tin foil. When I put the LC on the stove and cranked on the heat, I waited a minute and dropped the butter in. In melted almost immediately. Then I sweated the onions and leeks. They did just what they do on television. Even heat. No burning. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Between the LC and my copper pan I am in culinary HEAVEN. Maybe the stovetop isn't as bad as I thought. No, wait...it still doesn't do a true simmer and that downdraft is useless.
