When most of us hear the name Le Creuset, we think of their iconic Dutch oven and other pieces of durable, colorful cookware. Because these high-quality, enameled cast-iron pieces usually come with a bit of a hefty price tag, we’re also always on the hunt for opportunities to score Le Creuset while it’s on sale. Ready for some very good news? Right now, their signature 2.5-Qt. French Oven is on major sale at Williams Sonoma for a whopping 30 percent off.
More commonly known as a stew pot, the Le Creuset French Oven is somewhat of a hybrid between a Dutch oven and a braiser. The piece is shallow and wide enough for a traditional braise — think of all the awesome spring and summer recipes this thing can be used for — while it also has tall enough walls to stew, slow-cook, or even bake bread! Its in-between size makes it incredibly versatile, as it can easily fit a full recipe for 2-3 people without feeling too bulky. This French Oven is the perfect medium size for everyday and specialized use alike. Plus, although it has thick walls and wide, comfortable handles, it’s still petite enough that it won’t take up loads of space in your cabinet.
Nine gorgeous colors are included in this special sale. From classic Flame to the newer, striking Olive, there’s truly a hue for every kitchen aesthetic. Each oven is crafted with the same light, cream-colored interior which helps for easily monitoring food as it cooks. It also works to bolster heat retention and distribution for even braising and stewing. Use the Le Creuset French Oven atop a gas or electric stovetop, inside the oven, or even on the broiler (without the top). It’s so pretty, you’ll want to take it directly from the stovetop to the table.
Like all of Le Creuset’s high-quality cookware, this piece is built to last a lifetime. Basically, you’re buying an heirloom — and an heirloom for $150 is a pretty good deal if you ask us!
