Over the last few months, I've purchased 3 pieces of Le Creuset - all on sale So far I've bought 1 blue & 2 red. I was just curious, when you buy yours do you try to stick with just one color, choose whatevers on sale, try to match your kitchen or dishes, or get a variety for fun?
My mother handed down to me [with reluctance i may add] her dutch oven and a frypan some 20+ years ago both are the bright orange [i guess it's all they offered at the time] Since then I have added to my collection and kept with the color pallet. However given the color choices now I would have choosen black or red.

I try to buy things that I know I will like forever - like the HUGE set of calphalon and all the pieces I've added to it - and now I want Viking - yikes!!!! Ok, maybe half of forever!
I think you should get what you like!!! I think the blue and red would be beautiful together!!!! If I were going to buy the Le Crueset it would probably be the red - with a piece here and there of maybe the yellow (smaller pieces).

lyndalou, Look for either a LeCruset store or an outlet - they both have discounted pieces for huge discounts. Also check places like 'Tuesday Morning' if there's one near you; I've seen LeCruset at a 40% markdown there! Or------ask Santa!
I have a flame red casserolde dish. i saw a gorgeous powder blue limited edition piece the other day, I really like that colour, but it wouldn't go with the rest of my things, that's what I am telling myself anyway!!!
I have been waiting to buy a dutch oven for a while. I really want an orange one. I like the red, flame, and blue too, but something about the orange just really does it for me. I think maybe it reminds me of the colors in the kitchen from when I was young.
