New Color By Le Creuset

Le Creuset has done it again.  They have added another vibrant color to their vast collection of durable cast iron cookware.  

The new color called Provence is currently only available at Sur La Table.  It is a blue based purple inspired by the blooming lavender fields in the South of France. The color gradient is quite pleasing. I anticipate that this beauty will be a fast favorite for many with it being a 2018 Spring Pantone color.

Le Creuset has been making enameled cast iron since 1925. The enameled cast iron evenly distributes and retains heat allowing your food to properly boil, bake, roast, braise, simmer or sear. This cookware can be used with any recipe at anytime (winter, spring, summer or fall).  Le Creuset offers a great selection of fashion colors making this cookware not only beautiful but incredibly functional. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering your Le Creuset purchase:

  • Longevity:  This is not throw away cookware. Cookware of this caliber is truly an investment. These pans can last a lifetime when properly cared for.
  • Versatility: These pans can be used on the electric or gas stove, induction, under the broiler, in the oven, campfire and on your outdoor grill.
  • Value - Le Creuset Outlet:  The Le Creuset Factory Outlet offers deep discounts not only on the enameled cast iron but also on many other select items.  The outlet offers products which are "second quality", which means that there may be a slight imperfection on the product. These imperfections (external scratch on the enamel, etc.) are normally cosmetic issues and do not affect the cooking performance of the vessel in any way. The consumer is in complete control of inspecting each item before purchase, therefore you can determine what is or is not an acceptable second quality item. 

If you have been contemplating trying a piece of this enameled cast iron cookware, and do not know which piece to start with, I would recommend the ever so versatile Two-in-One pan (also known as the Marmitout) or the ultra versatile Braiser.  

This is a great combination set because you are getting both a fry pan and a saucepan.  The fry pan does double duty acting as a lid or as a frypan.  We all know that the fry pan and the saucepan are the workhorses in most kitchens and this pot-pan combination allows for a diversity of cooking methods (shallow fry, deep fry, sear, saute, braise, roast, broil, bake, boil and barbeque).  There is nothing that cannot be done with Le Creuset cast iron.  Consider visiting your nearest factory outlet to browse these selections and more.  You will not be sorry.

Carol,
How interesting about LeCreuset Cookware. You are so right about the outlet stores. I have gone into the one near me if only to marvel at the beautiful colors and the set up of the store. Actually never purchased anything as the prices are so high even at the outlet. Nex time when I go in and marvel at the colors I will remember where I found out about the green, Carol's Cookery

Linda,

It will be quite a while before fennel hits the outlet (at least a year or so). Whenever a new color is released, it is not available at any of the outlets unless it is proven to be a "flop" of a color. Many people like the fennel green, others find it middle of the road with not much of a wow-factor. Time will certainly tell on this one. :-)

Thanks for visiting.
