It’s often said that everything tastes better when it’s made in cast-iron cookware from Le Creuset. The French brand’s Dutch ovens, especially, are pretty much the gold standard in cast iron. However, gold comes at a price, and the price for Le Creuset is rather eye-watering. So this unexpected sale from the brand couldn’t be better timed, especially as most parents are cooking dinner together at home these days. Even better news: You can take up to 20 percent off full-priced items (a first for Le Creuset) through May 11.
Unlike traditional cast-iron pots and pans that require seasoning, the ones from Le Creuset are enameled, so they require minimal maintenance: You hand-wash them (dishwashing is fine, too, if you’re feeling somewhat brave), and you’re done. They cook things to perfection: Each vessel has even heat retention, so you won’t end up with half-raw, half-burned ratatouille. Just about every pot can be used for slow-cooking, roasting, searing, stir-frying, or baking.
Also, while the aesthetics of cookware are unimportant, of course, these pots and ovens look fine. They come in bright colors, and all of us could use something vibrant in our lives these days. Plus, this sale doesn’t just apply to weird products you’ll never use, but stuff you actually want.
The bright red classic one quart Dutch oven is something you'll use weekly, if not daily, to make soups, stews, sauces, or roast chickens.
This 5-quart beauty has higher sides to prevent splatter, and can be used for slow-cooking, braising, and roasting.
You can use this gorgeous covered dish to marinate meat or chicken, or to cook the perfect potatoes gratin.
Whip up flawless stew in this deep saute pan, or what you could also call a small Dutch oven, with a convenient handle.
