Where to buy Le Creuset in Toronto - Not Peppermill @ Hazelton Lanes

Where is the best place to purchase a French Oven in TO?

I've been to Peppermill in Hazelton Lanes researching which piece to buy. Each time the middle age guy at the cash register hasn't even bothered to look up from the computer to mutter "hello" or "may I help you?"

I was at Whole Foods yesterday and decided to go ahead and give it another try. I walked in ready to purchase the 5.5 quart and once again was ignored. The place was empty.

Manners Count. Is Williams-Sonoma the best place to go?

  1. The prices at Healthy Butcher are probably better

      Agree. Healthy Butcher probably has the best price for Le Creuset in the city.They also have a nice selection of knives. The shop on Eglinton is your best bet.

        Haven't tried Healthy Butcher but LC is a hit-or-miss affair elsewhere around the GTA, especially if you're a bargain hunter as a quick search of the Ontario site should reveal. Often "deals" amount to very limited selections of size and colour that can be seconds. You might also consider US mail order which isn't so painful now despite shipping charges and taxes--worth it if you can't source what you want here.

          Thanks, everyone. I didn't know Healthy Butcher carried Le Creuset and will go this week. I love their store and wonderful service.

    2. The best deals anywhere for le Creuset are on ebay! I just bought a used LC casserole for $60 including shipping. I've added it to the two pieces I inherited from my grandmother, who got them when she was first married. None of them are flashy, but you can't beat the quality!

      1. Nice selection at Junors at Bayview Village.

        1. Good Egg in Kensington Market (267 Augusta). According to their website they offer a 20% discount on in-stock pieces, and 10% on special orders. They stock Staub too, and the shop's a fun browse.

          1. I've always had good luck at Winners, bought many pieces there for a good price.
