So we were thrilled to learn that Sur La Table is offering epic Le Creuset sales ahead of Presidents' Day Weekend.

For a limited time only, you can save up to $150 on the brand's iconic pieces, including Dutch ovens, skillets and casseroles. Want even more savings? Be sure to check out our roundup of the best Presidents' Day sales.

This classic round Dutch oven is what you might think of when you hear the name Le Creuset. It's a staple of the collection, a lifetime piece made of enameled cast iron, polished and finished by hand; the colorful exterior is designed to resist chipping. It retains heat brilliantly. At 6.75 quarts, it's perfect for soups and one-pot meals, like chili. This one also has a wider, shallower profile with more surface area that makes it ideal for browning and searing meats.

"I use it daily, it's the workhorse of my kitchen," shared a Le Creuset lover. "Had it three or four years and it's clearly going to last me decades. Wasn't sure if I wanted a braising pan or another Dutch oven, and then this solved my needs for both."

All nine colors of this versatile piece are on sale — some for as much as $140 off.

If you already own a Dutch oven, but want to take advantage of the Le Creuset deals at Sur La Table, consider this buffet casserole. It's shallower than the dutch oven, which makes it perfect for searing meats, steaming vegetables and sautéing just about anything. The dimensions (and sleek lines) make it a perfect stove-to-table piece.

"A very attractive and practical pan," one shopper wrote. "I needed a large skillet and was planning to get a cast iron one. This is so much prettier for serving, and it's easier to clean. I've used it multiple times for many meals including stir fry, pasta dishes, shrimp scampi and cornbread!"

The same integrity as the iconic Dutch oven, but in saucepan size. You'll use it every day.

For smaller spaces, Le Creuset's Signature Saucepan is bound to become the busiest piece in the kitchen. It's made of enameled cast iron just like the Dutch oven, but at just 2.25-quarts it has a smaller footprint — just right for smaller stoves and meals for one or two people.

A shopper who purchased the saucepan said, "I have a large collection of Le Creuset cookware, however I did not have this saucepan. It is just fantastic and is great for making small batches of [everything from] soups to desserts and dips. Like all Le Creuset products, it's so easy to clean."

Durable and chip-resistant, these popular baking dishes provide superior heat retention.

Though Le Creuset is famous for its enameled cast iron cookware, it also makes wonderful stoneware, great for baking and casseroles. These square bakers have a lovely finish that resists chips and cracks; since the surface is non-porous, it won’t absorb odors or flavors. Well-designed handles make them easy to remove from the oven. And they're so pretty, they can go straight to the table, filled with lasagna, roasted veggies or brownies.

"A beautiful addition to my bakeware," raved a five-star fan. "It cleans up easily and the smaller size is perfect for the leftovers!"

Dinner prep is absolutely transformed when you're working with top-notch cookware.

Everyone needs a good skillet (or two) for frying up grilled cheese sandwiches, making omelets and more. These 8- and 10-inch beauties are especially sturdy and long-lasting, thanks to their triple-reinforced coatings. They also have stay-cool handles and a magnetic stainless steel disc that allows for cooking on any type of cooktop. Plus, their textured surfaces help with browning and searing.

"Excellent heat distribution," gushed a reviewer. "Easy cleanup. Sides curve perfectly for stirring. Cool handles. I looked at ceramic, and my research found that their surface has a limited lifespan. These pans look like they will last a lifetime."

How adorable is this solo-serving pot?

If you're looking for a more affordable item with the Le Creuset label, consider this darling 8-ounce cocotte, on sale for less than $25. It has a premium enamel-glazed interior and is ideal for heating up individual servings of cozy favorites like baked ziti, oatmeal, stew and more. A little luxury goes a long way.

"Cute," wrote a happy home cook. "I am using [it] as a butter dish."
