Le Cresuet - Cast Iron Cookware Set.

Available in your local store Sat 9th October 2010 - Tues 19th October 2010.

5 Piece Cookware set was £149.99 now £109.99 (saving £40.00)
Available in Volcanic, Blue or Almond.

7 Piece Cookware set was £209.99 now £109.99 (saving £100.00)
Blue or Almond.

Picture on leaflet shows a 5 piece set comprising of Griddle Pan, Frying Pan, 2 Large Deep Square Dishes and Large Stock/Stew Pot with lid.

I think the set comprises of :
· 20cm cast iron round casserole

· 26cm cast iron square grillit

· 20cm cast iron omelette/frying pan

· 25cm cast iron square dish

· 32cm stoneware rectangular dish


If I remember rightly the 7 set last year, had 2 other small ramakin style pots also, making it the 7 set.

The large stock pot costs £60 alone.

Definitely going to get again for christmas.

I've attached a picture of the set you will get. Most of the others sets you get are for £200-£300.

I have found this set elsewhere on the internet, but for over £200+.

Enjoy

How many of the pieces ARE cast iron? Im thinking that in the five piece set, the two large deep square dishes and the stock/stew pot will be ceramic? As a large cast iron le creuset stew pot with lid would be over £100 alone. If the seven piece set adds two ramekins, then I think that means each set has two cast iron pieces (the griddle and frying pan) and the rest are just ceramic?

The large rectangular dish is stoneware, not ceramic.
The rest are all cast iron.

I bought a set for my brother last year, and had to ask someone to lift it into the trolley for me!!
It sounds strange, but I had all of them out the box last year and totalled them all up individually and it would have cost me £275 odd to buy them all separately.
That is why this is a 'cracking' deal.

The stoneware isn't great value at all but that pack is still HOT!

Love the cast iron stuff, we have been using ours every day since we got it as a present and will keep adding to it as other pots/pans break. It's just damn near indestructable.

Sorry that's what I meant, stoneware, not ceramic, as it's ovenproof. I don't think the Le Creuset stoneware stuff is really better than other brands stoneware, but their cast iron I love.

this doesn't seem like a great deal.

the 20cm is far too small, and none of the other items are particularly useful.

Obviously your opinions are you're own.

The 20 cm stockpot is the standard size and used by most families to cook stews and broths etc.
It is the perfect size for a large family, and ours is regularly used to feed 5. Therefore I believe it is not 'far too small'.
Plus on the John Lewis site, this size le creuset casserole pot is £76 alone, so if you do not believe the entire set is a good deal, then so be it.

As for the items not being 'useful'. They are expensive cast iron COOKWARE and will last a lifetime .

I agree with most you say there except your comment that the 20cm casserole is perfect for large families. It only holds 2 litres if you want stirring space at the top, which isn't that much.

5 what, sparrows?

According to Le Creuset

Size (diameter): 20cm
Capacity: 2.4L
Portion Size: 2-3

I have a 24cm (4.2l) and while it's fine for 4, it's quite often I find that it's too small when I'm cooking larger quantities or bulky things like shellfish or oxtail.

20cm is definitely not a family size, nor is it 'standard', nor used by 'most families'.

I bought a cast iron grillit from Tesco for not very much, and it's not a particularly useful thing, the casserole is by far the key item, and buying a 20cm is going to be a mistake for most, because you're going to end up wanting a much bigger one.
