This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Seems to be the best price, with most online retailers selling it for around £190. John Lewis etc are still selling for the RRP of £240.

Of course it's very expensive for a pot, but they're built to last. Unfortunately my girlfriend wants the next size up which is going to cost me another £50!

You’re missing my point. I don’t think the point of the site is for us all to decide what people should/shouldn’t decide to buy. Is it not to find the best prices for anything and everything, and then we can chose which things we want to buy? If someone finds a good price for any item, then it’s a deal? The better the price, the hotter the deal, and if it’s actually not that cheap, or regularly less, then sure, vote cold.
I’m not saying you should vote hot just to thank people for posting, but bear in mind what behaviours you’re driving if you do vote cold for good deals just because you take issue with the product.
This reminds me why I don’t bother to post deals anymore. So many people seem to vote based on whether they like the product or have some other issue with it, not whether it’s a deal. As this is a lower price for this item than usual, to my mind it’s a deal - hot from me, and thank you for posting.
If we don’t appreciate people who post good deals, they’ll stop doing it, and we all lose out.

I hope this can be refrigerated because it's going to get very cold in here.
They have far better deals on cast iron casserole dishes, such as this one for £36. amazon.co.uk/Vel…-22
Pro Cook is made in the same factory as le creuset .... 24cm black £79 amazon.co.uk/Pro…c=1
These are decent. Don’t both with cheap imitations, they aren’t as comfortable to lift and often are heavier due to inferior material. Might be worth checking out the older classic range. We got the 24cm in onyx black for £84 earlier this year from ecookshop.

I now own the pro cook range which are as superior as Le Creuset. I used to own Le Creuset and haven't looked back. Never had an issue with quality or weight x

Buy it for the name if you want but lets not pretend there's some magic in these, you can get dimensions, weight and quality cheaper price than these.

I have a cast iron dish they are great but heavy and mine started to rust inside. I would highly recommend one of these. I purchased recently and I’m always using! Light weight, easy to clean, works just as well in my opinion as the bulky heavier cast iron pots.

Nonsense. The specs are completely different. Pro Cook is a thicker cast iron, just like all the other cheap enamelled cast iron posts around. The thing about Creuset is that they have managed to get the perfect balance of weight and usability. Plus Le Creuset have nailed the enamelling in a way that cheaper pans have not. All the cheaper pots are MUCH thicker, which means that they are not as easy to control the temperature, and are uncomfortable for everyday use because simply too heavy.

If you want a cheaper cast iron pot then Dyas or even Sainsburys will sell them cheaper than Pro Cook. But if you want one that will be a joy to actually use, then get a Le Creuset.

It's always worth posting, my view is if it helps just one person then job done, doesn't matter if it goes hot or cold.

I'm really not surprised this has gone cold. Posts for top of the range products (whether it's Apple, Dyson, Bose, Le Creuset ....) always seem to go cold, because people either think they're overpriced rubbish, or that you're paying for quality. Perhaps unsurprisingly given that this is a deal community, it seems the former lot tend to outweigh the latter.

All Le Creuset cast iron is made in their French foundry. They use a proprietary cast iron mixture and enamelling process. Seems highly unlikely they would be making pots for their much cheaper competitors using the same materials.

Hmm.. The counter arguement for this is that you will then have to decide or read the comments to see if it's actually a valueable product.

I only post deals which I personally think it's good buy and not just that 'it's on sale'. Whether it gets hot or cold is a moot point, it's to get the word out there.

If everyone does this then we only get decent products on here at great prices, rather than throw away rubbish and/or bad impulse buys.

TLDR: a 'deal' for me is how much time/effort/stress/hassle/money it saves me, not just money.

I think I agree with that in principle, but maybe reality is somewhere between the two, as judgements of value are pretty subjective (as we see from the comments - which I don’t think really help inform one way or the other here). It’s also true that whatever happens with the voting, as long as it’s posted we can find it and make up our own minds, but now I just wonder why we even bother with voting or comments, if there’s not necessarily value in either.

I feel the voting system should be how much everyone else agrees with said subjective values. Rather than, 'its 70% off', therefore hot, but since there are no rules to hot or cold votes per day its hard to control.

Comments imo should be confirm hotness of deal or suggest counter product which maybe better, and others question the truth to it (like above).

Ahh OK you're wrong there. You see Apple, Dyson etc. don't represent good value. Their prices are inflated because a minority of people perceive them to be so, because of marketing.

The majority of people know this and thus vote cold.

Typical example. "The incredible new iPhone 13, only £45 a month for 36 Months.." Not good.
Pot noodle aficionados voting in force I see...

As I said on a similar post a couple of days ago:

Nothing more than I expect from this site nowadays.

Although I see you're point, this doesn't apply universally. Like anything, it depends how much you care about that particular product.

For example, I use a Mac for work as a software developer, so an iPhone has more value for me, since it works together better. However, if I didn't have a Mac, the perceived value would be less.

It's the same with this Le Creuset - I don't do much cooking, so I wouldn't buy Le Creuset myself. But it has much more value for someplace who would use it a lot, like my girlfriend.
