Kitchen essentials: Le Creuset

LecreusetThank heavens I was watching my RSS reader in time to see Simply Recipes‘ alert yesterday for a 7-piece Le Creuset set for a mere $239. Considering each of the pans in the set retail for $100 and up, and the combined set went for $550 before the sale, we couldn’t resist. Good thing we acted fast, too, because that set is now no longer available. Early bird gets the worm! Amusingly, they also threw in a bonus gift — a 4-1/2" pumpkin casserole.

We already have one red Le Creuset Dutch oven, and love it to death. The enameled cast iron makes it great for braising and frying, and it cleans up a dream. These pieces should round out our collection and complement our All-Clad MC2 pans nicely.

The Dutch oven will be a redundancy, though, and we do have limited space in the kitchen. Which lucky friend will inherit a new, shiny red Le Creuset pot?

  1. I found your site through Becks & Posh.
    If you might want to sell your extra dutch oven pot I’m totally interested. Of course, I understand that friends should get first dibs…..but let me know, I would love love love to have it!!!

  2. Why give it to friends when you can give it to a totally random blog reader, such as myself?
    I think that is probably the best idea. =)

  3. Wasn’t that a good deal, while it lasted? (A few hours) Awesome that they threw in a pumpkin casserole too. 🙂

  4. I really think you should give that dutch oven to your FAVORITE aunt. Don’t you? I’ve actually been looking at them. 🙂
