lyndalou......I saw a few pieces at TJ Maxx about a month ago....you might check there. I don't know how much the dutch ovens run normally but there it was either $90.00 or $99.00.

Good Deals

I found my 7qt. red Dutch oven thru Bizrate at the caplanduval store - only $103 & that included shipping :D Caplan Duval www.caplanduval.com
has other sales on right now - not as good as the first deal I found though.

I like Le Creuset and all their colors! I have a lot of Red and Flame but I have a few pieces of Blue and Jade too. I like black too. I think all their colors are nice and am planning to get at least one piece in each color.
that way I can cook a dish to match the color of each pots!

so be adventrous!

I have 3 french ovens in blue (2 shades), a versatile pot in green and a flame grill pan (which I can't stand).

I bought the 7 qt blue first (on sale at Bloomingdales -- they have good prices) and then discovered the LC Outlet where they sell first quality discontinued colors for up to 75% off! They practically handed over the BIG BOY french oven for nothing.

So it pays if you are not picky about colors.

I stick with one color (blue). I've even passed up non-blue bargain pieces just to keep my set all one color; although with some of the very affordable pieces I'm seeing at a Le Creuset outlet near me, I could easily make an exception soon!

:)
Lyndalou, I've just purchased LC from a LC outlet somewhere in New York. I found them online and got a burr in my saddle to spend a bundle and did. It's a good place to go online and look and call the various outlet stores to see what they have. I ended up spending $900 and only got 5 pieces from the LC outlet. I sent back 3 for exchanges as they came damaged. Although I know they're not perfect quality when purchasing from LC outlet, for the price, you shouldn't have nicks or chipped handles. LC outlet was gracious in their exchanging also.
I did send back the 15 1/2 QT oval oven because I do not have a sink large enough to wash it if it ever gets used, which was doubtful after seeing how huge it was plus it weighs more than I do.
I am not sure how far you are from Tuesday Morning in Atlanta Georgia, but having just been there, they had a ton. < Which weighs a ton also so I didn't bring any home. Rats, great prices.

about the colors

I must agree with whoever said to be forgiving about the colors. That way, you can get wonderful cookware if you're willing to mix and match the color scheme. I think they've come out with lovely new colors myself but then, that's just my opinion.


I have Flame, Red, yellow, chocolate brown, and now with the new LC, I have Azure, Cobalt Blue and 3 Nigella Lawson powder/baby/robinegg blue ones that I adore.

We've just redone our kitchen a year ago and although nothing matches regarding my LC, I couldn't care less. I'm into variety, but then, I am sure someone in this family wishes I'd stick to one recipe for spaghetti sauce instead of dozens.
