I am looking to buy some LE CREUSET COOKWARE in Flame. I need some suggestions as to where to find the best prices.

  1. Scroll down--this was just discussed two days ago.

    1. ebay. The prices can't be beat. Buy from a reputable seller and you can't go wrong.

      1. If your really lucky and willing to do some shopping, they can be found from time to time at Home Goods, TJ Maxx or Marshalls at great prices. Hope you find the one you want at the right price.

          Marshall's used to have LC dutch ovens regularly. I got a huge one (I think it's 9 qt) for under $100. It's one of those LC "seconds," meaning there's a defect, but all I could find was a tiny scratch on the bottom side of it.

          But long story short, I haven't seen any LC products at Marshall's other than casseroles and pie plates for at least two years. Very sad, but if others spy them do post so I can go searching my area Marshall's too!

        2. I second ebay, but you have to be patient. Set up a search for what you're looking for. You'll get an email everytime new items come up for auction.
          I've bought 2 pieces for less than $100 each so far (a 5.5-qt and a 9-qt...both round Dutch ovens). Flame seems to be the most popular color and the prices on those pieces aren't as low...but keep looking!

            you can look for descoware too (belgian company purchased by le creuset a while back) on ebay - vintage pieces in retro colors like flame and harvest gold at very reasonable prices.

          2. The Le Creuset outlet stores will be having their storewide sale from June 30 to July 9. I just received my "preferred customer" coupon good for 30% off all purchases over $75. I think that the discount for non-preferred customers may be less, but call your local outlet store for details -- I think (but I'm not sure) that if you ask to be put on the mailing list, you become a preferred customer. Note that the discount is also on seconds -- a really great deal! I've gotten a few cosmetic seconds and after a few months I now can't tell the difference between them and the firsts that I own. Oh, and orders for $350 or more ship free. Here's a link to a store locator:
