LeCreuset cookware

I love my LeCreuset pans. My Mom bought my brother and I a starter set each in 1978. I love it, BUT....unpacking it all...how did I end up with, I kid you not, 52 pieces? Did my starter set behave like rabbits in the dark? You would think I was running a restaurant. This is not counting the Lodge cast iron pans...OMG, what am I gonna do with all of this???? Yeah, trying to downsize, just didn't expect to do this alone. And, I really like my LeCreuset...hate parting with even one pan.

Did a search re: replacement value. Holy-Moly, I have got a small frigging fortune in LeCreuset. $15,000. Holy-Moly. Who needs that kind of $ in cookware? When Mom bought our starter sets, she paid just over $115 for them. Holy-Moly. Now, we both did pick up pieces at yard sales, auctions, and thrift stores.

If you declare yourself as a collector, then no need to downsize. And they are collectibles. :)

LeCreuset is not cheap even on QVC for a sale price. At least QVC can make it somewhat affordable.

They are really heavy. Expensive to ship. I have the goose cooker to all sizes. Mine were blue, but I have all colors. I took very good care of them, as did my brother.Some are chipped on the edges. His set was that orange color. I am giving some to my friends' sons, but I don't think they need all of these. It would cost a lot to ship them.

I bought a Le Creuset 3.5-qt. braiser through eBay last year. Shipping was reasonable considering the discount on the pan. There are people who would be willing to pay it.

Le Creuset does sell pretty well on eBay. I had one piece I only used one time. I sold it on eBay for about 75-percent of what I paid for it at the LeCreuset Outlet Store.

Are they here or in the States? I 'might' be interested but don't tell my kids as they want me to downsize too! Ottawa area is drive-able.

Some are here, some are still in Ontario, I didn't count lids, so there are lids. So embarrassing I have so many....I am making a trip up in October, I hope, and will be bringing the LeCreuset back.
