I remember when my mom bought my set and some extra pieces for me (I picked blue--had they had purple then...). Anyway, she told me I should pick a color I liked because I was going to have them for the rest of my life...I remember saying something about I hoped I would still be able to lift them when I got old...that one I got at auction weighs about 15 lb empty. Not something you would want to drop on your toe or ceramic tile flooring...

BTW, I priced the pot I bought on line...new replacement price runs between $467-791. I wonder if I need to add a rider to my homeowners insurance policy to cover replacing all my LeCreuset...just wondering...

Phone your insurance company. Mine told me that my antique table and the silverware, etc. were covered and didn't need a rider.

I wouldn't worry about it, if you do have a fire they will probably just need a good scrubbing after they cool off!

I have Copco enamelled, cast iron. The apartment I was living in was gutted by fire. The Copco pots were fine, except the wooden handle on the skillet. They were just about the only things that did survive the fire.

Take a picture of all of them and store it "in the cloud".

this deal's gotta hit somebody's sweet spot! it's the kitchenaid 4.5 quart mixer, and it's going for $159.20. i KNOW, right? you get the sale price by using a code for 20% off. if you pay with mastercard, shipping is free. otherwise, it's 9.95. the sale mixer comes in silver, red and black, and the offer is good for about one day.

If you have a Costco membership, they have professional quality 1/2 sheet rimmed baking sheets 2 for $7.99 after instant coupon, that brings them to $4 each, which is a steal. This would be the perfect time to get more for holiday baking or to replace your funky looking ones.

I have just discovered a chain store called Tuesday Morning. Their website says it is closeouts from high end stores. I think I have been there every day for the past week
