Having kitchenware from Le Creuset is like the foodie version of people with tattoos making sure that their newest ink is in every single picture they take.
“Oh, haha, silly me — I didn’t even notice that I left my extremely fancy French pot on the stove. I totally did not do that on purpose because people were coming over.”
These premium French dishes have started such a cult-like obsession, people don’t hesitate to pay the ridiculously expensive full price (just check out the #LeCreuset hashtag on Instagram). But today, a miracle is happening: Macy’s is having a massive sale, shaving hundreds off of these status symbols.
If you’re a home magazine junkie and keep seeing rainbow pots just chilling in the background, it’s safe to assume that they’re Le Creuset. Best known for their colorful enamel-coated French and Dutch ovens, the brand has been perfecting their craft since 1925 and has expanded their line to include skillets, plates, bowls, mugs, utensils, and more.
Let’s marvel at this infamous color selection for a sec:
Each pot goes through a meticulous creation and enamel-layering process, and are later examined by hand for quality before shipping from the warehouse. They’re pricey because you’ll get your money’s worth — these things last.
