Not all, I’ve had some before that had a “lifetime warranty” and were meant to be amazing. Turns out, they were all plastic and terrible. Of course, you can get unbranded etc for less just the same you can with anything and just because I may like something doesn’t mean you must :)
Don't they all have ceramic mills? Plenty available for under £10 that have.
It’s a little bit more than that, it has a ceramic mill inside. If you’ve ever used one, they’re worth the money.
So it's a plastic grinder. But stick Le Creuset on the side and it becomes a premium product with price to match?

Thanks OP - have various Le Creuset baking trays / tins from previous deals on hukd that get regular use and they’ve all been superb... mini muffin tin bought :)
Ordered thinking it was a good deal but ended up cancelling... The positive reviews are for the larger standard sized muffin tray. This mini one doesn't get good reviews. It's tiny and basically useless. Also the coating comes off really easily (it was chipped on arrival for some people). There's a reason it's been reduced IMO Also - it's not even dishwasher safe. All my bakeware is dishwasher safe and wasn't expensive so this is hardly high-end
Fantastic deal. Was just about to post it too. Been price watching via camel for years. Never been this low so clearly this is a hot deal. Whether anyone else thinks it's worth the money is irrelevant.
I got a cheap (and I mean cheap) IKEA dutch oven and last week picked up the Staub which was on offer. Similar products, but after two meals I can see the Staub will help keep a lot more moisture in, hold heat longer and need less gas to keep bubbling away. Also looks stunning. So, both will do the same job, I suppose it depends how much you like cooking and hiw many times you do a big home dish. That said, I would have paid 4x the price for the IKEA if I would have know how much I ended up using it. It may sound contrived to say these pots are investments, but if you like having mates round to eat or like cooking batches to freeze, they really are. (highfive)
Volcanic is their most popular colour, it probably won’t drop much more.
The Coastal Blue Salt & Pepper Mill Set looks awesome!
FYI TK Maxx Le Creuset stuff is cheaper and of worse quality than the stuff Le Creuset sell elsewhere. You will not find these products sold by other retailers and the TK Maxx price is the retail price. I bought the coffee mugs from TK Maxx thinking it was the same as the ones you buy from John Lewis but there is a big difference in quality.
Damn, I was hoping this included those really tiny ones (lol) I use one for putting sauce in. They're only about 5cm wide
Correct. Then you mentioned me twice in this way: and i quote 'I'm sure you and that poster own something that cost you a lot more than the cheapest alternative but you got it because you wanted it and it was nobody's business but yours.' Sounds pretty negative to me considering my original comment was who cares what mug you use to drink coffee out of...
(lol) (lol) (lol) These are for proper Le Cresuet fans. Some people swear by Le Creuset. They cost an earth but folk can get colours to match their kitchens and they come with lifetime guarantees, so I guess that's good. :)
Also strange how this is cold because it’s not a video game or alcohol (lol)
Mine just arrived, ordered at 7pm last night!
It’s a combination of excellent quality and premium for the brand name. Much like Audi, BMW, Apple, etc. You can buy a cheaper equivalent that will do but won’t last as long but people prefer to be seen with premium brands.
Heat The price is cheaper than sizes >=20cm
Then watch the enamel coating crack and flake off to flavour your casserole. Seriously we’ve got both and I’m speaking from experience. If funds are short and you don’t mind waiting I’d suggest going on EBay or Gumtree to get a second hand one.
Hear! Hear! This is supposed to be a deals website, not an 'alternative to...' website. If a post shows where you can pick up a product/service cheaper than anywhere else, then it's a deal. Don't let those that don't understand this and vote cold put you off posting. Ignore the criticism and be happy that someone will see the post and buy it at that price and you won't go far wrong.
and burn your house down.....
Thanks op, was meaning to get one of these, dont mind paying extra if it lasts. To the complainers my advice is to get a plate and put it on a folded-out cornflakes box, trace the shape and cut out a cardboard circle. Absolute bargain!
Our cheapo one has been going for 6 years no problem, we use it all the time. Dishwasher safe. I like quality items but for this I don't see the point.
Bull (poo) people post genuine deals for reasonable prices as they know it will suit a vast amount of people, the fact your post is freezing cold shows that this is a bad deal with a lot of the HUKD community, like another post said..if you can't take the criticism don't post the deal and stop comparing cars to a piece of scrap metal (y)
But the seed has been planted and others will bite thinking it's only a couple of quid now m more
It’s only £1.11 cheaper than it’s original full price now so personally that’s not a good enough price drop for me for a needless purchase so not a deal anymore in my eyes but if it is for you then that’s great- just sucks it went up in price so quickly but I’m sure it’ll go back down again by Christmas lol.
Still a good price. Still a worthy needless purchase :D
Pros and cons to both. Cast iron generally very heavy, so lot of mass to hold heat, however, contrary to popular belief cast iron/steel are poor conductors of heat so are prone to hot spots. I'm not going to list the other drawbacks of cast iron as they are well known. The stainless pot here gets around stainless steel being a poor conductor by sandwiching aluminium (an excellent conductor of heat) between stainless sheets (corrosion resistant, non toxic, dishwasher safe etc etc). Get the even heating of an aluminium pan without the drawbacks. This is what cheap pots do too, but they only put the heat conductor on the base, so the sides can scorch etc. That said, I like and use both multi ply stainless pans/pots and cast iron cookware. IKEA make some decent stainless, triply cookware too, worth checking out.
FIr enough. I guess with the ban on gas jobs, we'll be seeing less of cast iron.
