The find I found

There is a beautiful cooking store in town but it is $$$. I rarely go in there because I just get sad by all the stuff I want but can't afford...My sister is here so we decided to go in and look around. I found this Le Creuset 12 quart pot! 50% off! I got it for only $60!!! It will be soo handy! I don't like when I make a chowder and have to use 2 pots or pasta without enough water in there. I am looking forward to the use to come of this huge pot! Just thought I'd share. Yippee!

What a great buy, Cora!! I can definitely share your excitement, we had some of those moments at our newly acquired kitchen "toys"!! A big pot will surely come in handy with two healthy growing boys always hungry for your goodies!!

Have lots of fun with it!!

That's a great buy! My mother lives near a Le Creuset discount store and they are not that cheap there! In fact, even full US price is not bad compared to UK prices, so I think your buy is doubly thrifty!

I hope you really enjoy it. Its amazing how much what you cook with affects your cooking, emotionally as well as practically.

Macy's also has this, but it's about half that size, I think. I saw it there the other day.

I think I got enough Emerilware SS Cookware to handle large cooking jobs, including chowder.

Plus I still have a monster 17-qt. Vollrath SS stock pot.

Sorry, the pot I saw at Macy's was a Chantal. But it looks just like this one.
