This link will get you the location of the LeCrueset retailer or outlet store nearest your Zip Code.

You can get some goo d deals there, especially on some items that have slight cosmetic defects.

For what it's worth, I was given a 7 qt. French oven for Christmas, and I use it all the time. The size is perfect.

eBay...

is the best place to find CHEAP Le Creuset...and most of what you'll find on eBay are NOT factory seconds. That said, I found mine (a 9 qt. round) at a factory outlet store near me. Although I would prefer a 7 qt (9--actually 8.75-- is a little big), the store was hit or miss, and I found mine for $115, which I thought was a fantastic deal. I quickly got over the minimal extra size (7 1/4 is what I wanted, ended up w/ 8.75) for a bargain like that. The fact that it is a factory second doesn't bother me in the least. So, I'd check eBay first, then call a factory outlet nearby.

tell me oldhat, what factory outlet store do you live by? I know that Vacaville California is the closest one to me. I have called them and they are hit/miss, you're right about that. I have looked several/many/tons of times at ebay and found no good deals at all. To me, they're over priced there too. They end up selling for too much as I think some people bid them way up, making them not a good deal anymore. Like you, when I've found them at terrific prices wherever I've shopped and found them, if they're seconds or a slight defect, it's not a problem for me either. Only thing I've found is, when they're cracked or have a noticable crack in them, they're trashworthy

I fully plan on taking my mom for a long drive to Vacaville, lunch and a fun shopping experience at their outlet there. Hopefully, I'll get every size I really want and won't spend more than a 5 C note
