le cuistot

Has anyone heard of this brand? It's a Montreal based company and I saw some of their enamel cast iron dutch ovens beside the le creuset ones this afternoon. They look good, very similar to LC, but they were 1/3 the price. I was wondering if anyone has tried cookware from this company...

  1. Are you sure it isn't "Cuisipro?" I bought some of their stuff when I was up in Quebec a few years ago, and loved it. No cast iron "LC" type stuff, more utensils, gadgets, etc. I've since found the brand here everywhere from Crate & Barrell to Target.

    1. I checked the tag and was pretty sure it said Le Cuistot. I've googled it and haven't come up with anything...

      1. I found the web site.

        Its all in French.

        Hope this helps

          I saw that too but it seems like a recipe sharing website. Nothing about cookware.. :-( Thanks for the help though! It's much appreciated.

        2. I found a picture! But sadly no website for the company. HAs anyone ever heard of them?

            I'm printing this out and taking it to my local Ace store to see if they can get it. They go to the big housewares shows--this company should be there.

          2. I finally got ne of these, a red 5 qt dutch oven. I figured it would do until I could shell out the money for a LC. I baked the no-knead bread in it and cooked in it today (Ina Garten's 40 garlic chicken) and I am very happy! I got it for $49.99 CAD and I think that price can't be beat.

              I just purchased the 28 cm casserole for $100 CDN (on sale). Like you, I bought it as a "stop gap" until I could shell out the money for LC. I am excited about trying it. Where did you find yours for $49.99 CDN?
