It's the most wonderful time of year — and, by that, we mean Amazon just kicked off Black Friday six weeks early! That's right, Amazon Prime Day is back, and this time around, the e-commerce giant is offering discounts to Prime members that are so good you'll want to start your Christmas shopping early. But don't wait, the deals are only available until midnight tonight, October 12, before going back into hibernation until Black Friday rolls around.

Everything You Need To Know About The New Amazon Prime Day

At the top of our shopping lists? Le Creuset's cookware. Since its founding in 1925, Le Creuset has been known for making the gold standard of cookware — and for good reason. The magic lies in its enameled cast iron, which heats up recipes quickly and efficiently. (And, in case you missed it, cast iron enhances everything from pan-seared salmon to a cheesy casserole.) Not only will it make an incredible addition to your kitchen, but speaking of the holidays, we can't think of a better gift for foodies than a Le Cresuet Dutch oven.

Though the French brand is incredibly popular amongst home cooks and professional chefs, it's not exactly cheap. In fact, its signature Dutch oven will set you back hundreds of dollars. Thankfully, there are Le Creuset discounts on Amazon as part of the new Prime shopping event. It's the second and final day of the sale, but there are still a few great Le Creuset deals to be had. Right now, both the classic Dutch oven and the smaller Sauteuse oven, which is great for couples and single people, are on sale. Or, if you already have a collection of Le Creuset cookware, the enameled casserole dish would make a lovely addition (or gift for the host!), and it is 13% off.

These discounts may not seem like much, but considering how rare Le Creuset sales are (the brand only has one factory sell per year!) and how expensive the products are (a 20% discount could mean as much as $100 off), they're definitely worth your attention if Le Creuset is on your wish list. Shop the deals below, then read on as we answer the internet's burning questions about the new Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, including: dates and logistical details, the best deals to look out for and how to get a free Amazon Prime membership.

The best Le Creuset deals on Amazon

Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Oval Dutch Oven (8-quart) for $299.95 (15% off)

Famous for strength, durability and signature colors, Le Creuset cast iron Dutch ovens can be used for slow-cooking, braising and roasting, thanks to the ability to maintain even and consistent heat. Plus it's suitable for both stovetop and oven use.

Right now, the family-sized 8-quart Dutch oven is on sale for $299, which is an incredible deal. It's only 15% off on Amazon, but that's because it's cheaper on Amazon than elsewhere to begin with — the standard retail price of the 8-quart Dutch oven is $475!

Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Sauteuse Oven (3.5-quart) for $239.95 (20% off)

This smaller cast iron oven from Le Creuset, named the Sauteuse, is perfect for anyone who lives alone (or couples!) who don't need to feed a big family every time they cook.

Le Creuset Stoneware Covered Rectangular Casserole (3.5-quart) for $99 (23% off)

If you're already a fan of Le Creuset and looking to expand your collection, this covered casserole dish is a great next step beyond the Dutch oven. The stoneware maintains even temperatures and prevents scorching, and the interior is glazed, so it easily releases burnt-on food for quick cleanup. Speaking of convenience, this dish is safe to use literally anywhere in your kitchen: freezer, microwave, oven, broiler and dishwasher.
