Longtime readers know my passion for Le Creuset cookware. The enamel-coated cast iron is the perfect combination of heat distribution and non-reactive surface to make sure your food is evenly cooked without a metallic tinge to the flavor. It’s also attractive enough to grace nearly any table top, and so heavy that it makes a great impromptu set of weights for strength training, as well.
Unfortunately, the price can be just as heavy lifting as the pots…unless, of course, you know where to shop.
This is the Le Creuset Cast Iron Dutch Oven in the popular Flame color. It holds 2.7 quarts for perfect braising, stewing, or steaming on a larger scale. It’s safe for both stove top and oven. It can go in the dishwasher, though handwashing is recommended. Don’t worry, my Le Creuset pot cleans in a flash by hand, no matter what I’ve put in it. Oh, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, too. If you ever manage to find a way to break it, the company will stand by their word and take care of the problem.
And about that price thing, well, the recommended retail price is $160.00. Cooking.com usually gives customers a five-cent discount on that, which isn’t much of a difference as a general rule. Right now, however, they’re giving us a real break on the price. They’ve knocked it down to just $109.95! That’s a savings of more than $50.00, which is nothing to sneeze at.
Oh, and if you’re not wild about the flame color, don’t worry. It comes in seven other colors, all on sale. Speaking of which, there are a couple of other Le Creuset bargains going at Cooking.com just now that you may be interested in as well.
