Excellent find. Thank you.
Is it an Amazing price for an Amazing pot or a Great pot for a Great price?;)
Fantastic price £70.00 on amazon,
This one is a bit shallow, holding only 2.6L, not 3.3L. Don't expect a big one to come along! Buyer beware!
Good price. I bought my 22cm round blue one for £60 from argos with free steamer attachment (rrp £30 alone). And i think we bought the 3 dish set for about £18. Very good quality.
Good price. Rare to find these casseroles dropping in price. Heat added. Worth checking if any codes still work. And dont forget cashback.

I think its worthy of both tags!;)
Amazing indeed - amazing the AGA set still go for this overpriced stuff when there is so much similar cast iron cookware around at sane prices. Not voting as I know it's a big reduction from RRP but you are still being ripped off for the sake of a brand name.

I have a le creuset and then bought a generic cast iron one, the difference in quality is easy to see, within weeks of using the generic one the enamelchipped in a couple of places and leaves a rust mark.

I'd agree. This is one of the cases where "you get what you pay for" is true.

Stick one over your head and it will also protect you from sarcastic crap.
I had aset of Le Creuset pans and bakeware off my aunt as a wedding present
Had never heard of it before, and hated the orange colour so never used it.
I sold everything for £1 each a couple of years after at a bootsale
I still shudder when I think how much she paid for it..........

Rare to find these casseroles dropping in price.




If you're not fussy about colour and are happy to wait it's worth keeping an eye on amazon as they randomly slash the prices every so often. I've got three casseroles and a roasting dish and all were less than half normal price. The 22cm casserole cost me £24.

Let me know when you're holding your next boot sale

Amazing. The person who bought them must've thought they'd won the lottery.
LOL- funny enough pukey, it was the first thing to go!
Great price for a superior product.
Le Creuset pans work on induction hobs unlike many, and add to their versatility and practicality.
Like dan1979 said, if you are patient then these can be picked up cheaply (ish)
often find these in TK MAxx. no idea how the price compares - just a heads up
I bought one of these for the missus a while back but she struggled with the weight especially when full. No denying there good quality just darn heavy! Hot price oh and tk max price I'd around £40-£50
Can anyone enlighten me how much of a difference in quality these are compared to the Chasseur brand? I have one of those and I swear by them, if looked after properly.

It's all in the mind. If you MUST have 'LeCreuset' for your AGA then nothing else will do; if you just want decent cast iron cookware then the others are fine.

I never have, do currently, or ever plan to own an AGA.....You are aware that its not only people with AGAs that buy Le Creuset products, aren't you?
Missed it!

See my earlier post, bigger pot for less money, very good quality too.
My order came back is it couldn't be fulfilled, even though the site still offers it for sale! I am trying one of the other colours!

It's an image thing. Nothing against either product but they are poor value for money. If you're not hung up on a brand there is lots of other good stuff out there at a fraction of the price, eg as mentioned in an earlier post. I just hate to see people being ripped off for the sake of a fancy brand name.

No question they are overpriced, but their reputation means they can command a price premium.

I got a Argos cast iron grill pan in their clearance sale recently. Looks near identical to the le creuset version but mine was £6.99 and in John Lewis the Le Creuset version was £71. Although mine appears as well made on first appearances its unlikely it will last as long but a huge price difference.

The french seem to have a knack of making stuff like clothes, cosmetics, wine and even kitchen ware and charging huge sums for it. They can even sell water at inflated prices.

This is a product built to last though that could last many decades if treated properly and so could actually work out a very cheap product over the long term.

I suspect there are products of equal worth for far less money but there are also much inferior products too. Its very difficult to know which is which and that means Le Creuset is the safe bet.

I have ordered a cream one and it has shown as 'dispatched'. So give another colour a whirl.

Cool. Thanks for the tip. I will track a few of these on Amazon. Might drop prices around Christmas.
i have bought some le creuset stuff and it's indestructable; i also have some that i've inherited from relatives that is as good as new despite over 30 years of near constant use. i won't hear a word said against them, especially not at this price. obviously don't pay top whack for them, but anything with 25% or more off the rrp is a bargain considering just how versatile and long lasting they are. they will last a lifetime (and more!)
