If you cook very often, one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to get your hands on good cookware that will last you for a very long time. Le Creuset products are made of cast iron, coated with a layer of ceramic – meaning they heat very uniformly, retain heat for a long time, and will last so long that you will likely be passing them to future generations of cooks in your family. Since each piece is so durable, if you find used Le Creuset for sale, you can pretty much bet that they will serve you as well as a new product bought from the store, at a fraction of the cost. Searching for older Le Creuset pieces can sometimes turn into a quest for some, since Le Creuset will sometimes discontinue certain colors in favor of introducing new ones.
I partnered with Le Creuset and attended their Factory to Table Sale in Atlanta, Georgia. It was so much fun.
