You know Le-Creuset- a beautiful, but quite expensive cookware set. Le Creuset ranges from about $20 to $2,500, depending on the model and set.
Le Creuset debuted in 1925, the time of culinary innovation and an economic boom across the world. It came at the right time; the middle class formed and created a social class that could buy materials they didn’t necessarily needed. Of those items, culinary became a focal point. People could buy different pots and pans, blenders, coffee machines, etc. Pretty much anything they wanted, they could get with their credit cards.
There are several reasons why people love Le Creuset:
Appearance: enameled cast-iron pan that is not only pretty, but practical
Has a variety of colors and styles
Market-leading & Brand Label (Recognizable)
Life warranty for many of its products
What to get from Le Creuset
They do sell non-stick pans, but I always will recommend the cast-iron pans. If you take care of them the right way, they should last you a lifetime.
These are kind of expensive, but they come in such lovely colors and sizes. I use my 8” for crepes and omelets, my 9” for stir-fry’s and my 10” I use for meat dishes. If you don’t want to pay the sticker price, they usually sell their signature pans half off in their outlet stores. Only downside with this is they are usually an older model. (At the outlet mall I got a Le Creuset 8” pan for $65!!! Sticker price is $120)
2. Cast-iron crepe panIf you are someone who usually makes crepes, this pan would be a beautiful investment. It makes the perfect crepe; and spreads the batter in a fast and even matter.
3. Cookware Set If you want to invest in the whole Le Creuset cookware set, make sure you buy the whole set at the same time. I know it sucks to save up for everything, but you save so much money its worth it. For example, the 5-signature piece set would cost $675, and the sticker price for it all is $525. They even have a Mickey Mouse signature pan set for $350 and a wok set for $400.
4. Saucepans The saucepan goes really well with the 9” or 10” signature pans. You can make some amazing sauces or creams and make your own tomato sauce. If used properly, your family and friends will love all the delicious meals you can make.
5.Round Dutch Oven Pan If you think of Le Creuset, the first image many people would conjure up is their round Dutch ovens. It’s one of their signature pieces in their collection. The Le Creuset Dutch Oven is made of cast-iron; so any meats or brews will be made in flavor delight with this brand.
All these cast-iron pans are useful for any baker as well.
