What's the difference between a dutch oven, casserole, and brasier?

E_M | Sep 11, 200903:35 PM     23

I am a cooking ignoramus. I was inspired by Julie & Julia to dust off "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and am more confused than ever.

On WS, (which has great pictures for reference), they have Le Creuset cocotte, dutch oven, and brasier. What is the difference between these? I need some guidance, as I don't want to buy them all!

Thanks much....
