To put it plainly, the Le Creuset factory sale Does. Not. Mess. Around. This isn’t one of those “sales” where relatively undesirable items are given a paltry markdown. Le Creuset, the iconic French cookware company, sells its famous Dutch ovens, griddles, casserole dishes (and so much more) at markdowns literally up to 50%. Usually this sale is an in-person pop-up, but this year the company decided to expand it to online shopping. The sale runs while supplies last, so we suggest taking advantage of the deals sooner rather than later.
If you feel a little overwhelmed, don’t worry. We went through and picked out some of the best deals and coolest items, including iconic Le Creuset classics and more niche, hard-to-find items. Check them out below:
We wouldn’t really be talking about Le Creuset if we didn’t talk about the Dutch ovens. In our tests of the best Dutch oven, Le Creuset consistently comes out on top for its heavy and durable construction and its consistent thermal distribution, which allows for excellently braised meats and luscious stews. Usually, price is its biggest drawback, which is why snagging one at the Le Creuset factory sale is extra exciting.

On the Stove
Maybe you don’t have the space for a grill outside, or maybe you do but you feel too lazy to fire it up just to char some chicken thighs on a Tuesday. This is where stovetop griddles come in handy. If you don’t already have one, Le Creuset makes a few in different shapes and sizes that all do a stellar job replicating the sear of an outdoor grill.

In the Oven
Oh, the end of summer. The air is thick, the cicadas are buzzing, which means it is time to start making some desserts that highlight the produce of the season. This bakeware is perfect for cobblers, tarts, and pies to showcase those peaches, nectarines, or even cherries that you have stashed in the freezer from a few weeks ago. Also, as we near the fall, these Le Creuset casserole dishes are ideal for roasted vegetables, baked pastas, and holiday stuffings. Not only do these serve you well in the oven, but they also look fabulous on a table.

Off the Heat
Of course, Le Creuset also makes more offbeat small wares that aren’t designed for cooking. This includes tabletop accoutrements like ramekins, mugs, and pitchers. Then there are things like the egg carton below, which is admittedly extravagant—but also undeniably charming. Think of the possibilities! Sure, you could keep it in the fridge to store your eggs, but you could also use it to serve hard-boiled eggs as a part of a weekend breakfast spread.
