They have these for $99.99 in the Caribbean and Kiwi only. Other colors are $169.99. It's a great pot at a great price. It you buy $129 worth of LC they also give you a free very cute red heart covered LC ramekin. FREE shipping too! Please post if you get one ;-)!

Just do a search for Le Creuset soup pot.

      Hmmm...Anyone want to get one in Caribbean and then I will trade you my Dune? Hah!

      For whatver it's worth, I really like the soup pot. Prior to getting a Brasier/Buffet Casserole, it was my most oft-used piece of cookware.

        I was wondering if you ever used your soup pot also for roasting a chicken or making a pot roast. It's the same diameter as the 5.5 oven, but it's bowl shaped on the bottom giving it less capacity.

          I haven't tried either. I think it would work fine for both, but the shape and small bottom might be a little bit troublesome. I'm sure it would work ok, though, you just might need to do a little tweaking.

            I've use my le creuset soup pot for a small pot roast and it came out great. Anything large, though, might be tricky with the smaller base.

              Great! Thanks for letting me know. I was trying pot roast shaped things in there and I think you can even go to a three lb. roast. You can still brown it, and it doesn't even have to touch the bottom if you want to go larger as long as the liquid comes up to the right height in the pot. You can also get a 4-4.5 lb. chicken in there nicely I think for roasting. I like that it's wide and shallower than the 5.5 qt. oven.

            Just this minute ordered two of these in Kiwi -- thank you for the "Heads Up". I didn't find this bargain on the regular Amazon site but followed the link provided by Cpt Wafer (thank you!) and they'll ship (free) on 2 June. One for me and the second as an anniversary gift for a pair of food enthusiasts who've recently painted their kitchen in a brilliant Kiwi. Just perfect and I am grateful for the posting.

              Thanks for the notice- do you (or anyone that's ordered already) know how to confirm that you're getting the free ramekin? Does it come up on the order invoice after paying?

                You have to add the ramekin to your order and it should show as a "0" amount at checkout. If it doesn't,have your order ready to submit, and then call Amazon at 800-201-7575, and get one of their reps to take it off your order. They will ask you to submit the order and then they will take it off. It was a lightening deal before at $119.99 and this is even better! If you didn't do this, cancel your other order and add the items to your cart again, and then call amazon.

                Here's another LC bargain. Only in Citrus.


                Thanks for letting me know you all got them. I love to enable--er--help...LOL! I'm a cookware junkie and I love hearing about what people bought, especially ones I helped with ;-

                  Thanks so much for the notice! I did have to call Amazon, and the rep told me the green soup pot was not eligible for the free ramekin, but he told me he would manually take it off after it's been shipped. I have a cobalt dutch oven, but a lot of my kitchen stuff is light green so the soup pot will be great! I also got a cobalt enamel on steel stock pot as well, I can't wait! :o)

                $99? Are these made in France? or China?

                  Mine was the "made in France, original orange Le Creuset box" variety.

                    Happy to help ;-). Actually the LC box before was a nondescript white box that wasn't very attractive. This newly designed orange box is much nicer, and fits more with the price and prestige of the item. The Staub box is still pretty unattractive in light brown cardboard with unattractive graphics. I'm a designer so I notice things like that...;-).

                    According to LC, all the enamelled cast iron is made in France. Crockery and aluminium may be from China or other places.

                      Hmmm...I purchased LC cast iron oval oven from Amazon and though the piece itself is stamped "France" on the bottom, the white non-descript box blondelle mentioned said "Made in China".

                      I just now checked their website and it says nothing of where their products are manufactured....

                        Cut & Pasted from the LC website:

                        "About Us
                        ABOUT LE CREUSET

                        All the Le Creuset cookware is made from enameled cast iron. Cast iron has been used for cooking utensils since the Middle Ages. The Le Creuset factory is at Fresnoy-Le-Grand in Northern France."

                        In the booklet accompanying enamelled cast iron cookware the French origin of the LC product is strongly emphasized.

                        Notice my emphasis on enamelled cast iron -- that is all made in France. Aluminum, pottery etc, may be made elsewhere, including China.

                        You could call LC at: 1.877.273.8738 or e-mail customer service - cservice@lecreuset.com for further verification.

                      Both of mine arrived on Friday, June 6th and are perfect in every way. Thank you for the "Heads Up" on this lovely bargain. I look forward to using it - and it will have to be for something other than soup for the summer since I live in AZ and soup likely isn't on my menu for a while.
