Le Creuset great deal

I just purchased a new Le Creuset 3.5 qt. Oval, wide Cast/Enamel French Oven for $129 plus shipping at this link: http://www.surlatable.com/category/id...

I believe it is a limited time offer but an amazing price! The best Le Creuset deals at Sur Le Table currently are on the pan mentioned above and the 2-in1 Pan (two quart saucepan with lid that also serves as saute pan). Two new colosr are being introduced at this site (fennel, which is a deep green; cassis which is a plum color) and it is apparently an exclusive offer. Shipping cost was $16.50.

There are other great savings as well, but these two versions (French oven and 2-in-1 pan) were the best bargains.

    Thank you for your heads-up. Amazed that those new colors, fennel and cassis, are already discounted for certain shapes.

      The Fennel is brand new. Cassis has been around for awhile, maybe a year. That is a good price for the 3.5, and it's a size and shape I don't have. I'm going to stop in at my local SLT and check it out.

      That is pretty small. The smallest I currentlyI have is a round 4.5 quart , Unfortunately mine are black and they don't make black any more. I use these almost daily. They also replaced my small one due to a couple of chips. Don't know how it happened since I had it for many years with no problems. I guess I could jazz up the kitchen with a red one.

        Agreed. I was psyched about this deal until I saw the piece in person. You'd honestly be hard-pressed to put a chicken in the thing, let alone anything else. It would be good for small side dish preparation or presentation, but not a whole heck of a lot else.

          I use my LC 3.5 qt (round) for storing stuff, mostly. I cook up a pound of beans in my 4.5 qt, then when they're cooked and cooled, I move the beans into the smaller pot. The interior is so brown from cooking (cannellini, tomatoes, sage, olive oil, prosciutto), I want to store the beans in something else. Since I can reheat in the 3.5 qt, I choose it instead of a stainless bowl (I don't use tupperware-esque storage containers).
