Le Creuset at Marshall's?

I saw a Marshall's commercial on TV and it said save on "French cast iron cookware." The pot looked a lot like Le Creuset. Do they sell Le Creuset, or is it a look-alike?

  1. you know marshalls, stock will vary from day to day and store to store. that said, lately i have seen all sorts of enameled cast iron in my local stores, both le creuset and other brands.

    1. I'm a regular Marshall's denizen, and I've never seen LC enamelled cast iron on the shelf. Lots of OTHER LC products...stoneware, enamel-on-steel stockpots, tons of kettles, but never any "real" pots. Recently, I've seen non-LC enameled cast iron (can't recall the brand), but it was oddly shaped, full of decorative indentations/rather sculpted on the exterior....felt heavy enough, but with all of those shaped areas, I thought it wouldn't wear very well.

      1. My aunts have picked up genuine Le Creuset at Marhsall's at a huge discount. It was probably a year or two ago, but it was the deal of a lifetime.

        1. As previously mentioned, Marshall's inventory changes constantly. That being said, I've definitely seen legit LC enameled cast iron a lot recently in Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and HomeGoods near me in NOVA/DC Metro area.

          In fact, I just purchased a 7 1/4 qt. round LC enameled cast iron dutch oven from HomeGoods for my mom for about $100. You can't beat that deal with a stick.

          1. Marshalls and TJ MAxx both definitely sell the LC enamelled cast-iron pots, I saw some here in MA last week. They also do sell look-alikes, so you need to comb through the stock pretty carefully. I bought my LC 5 quart dutch oven at TJ MAxx a few years ago and got a great price on it.
