Heads Up Le Creuset lovers

As of February Le Creuset is going to be making some big changes. The French ovens, round and oval are being redesigned. The loop handles are going to be larger to make using oven mitts easier. The lids are going to seal better, the phenolic knob is going to be heat safe to 500 F. White and Onyx are going to be dropped as colors. I don't know what colors they are replacing them with. Keep an eye out for some specials especially at the outlets on the old line.
What you are describing is the Signature line which has been exclusive to Williams Sonoma for some time now. I didn't think it was successful enough there to replace the well loved classic line with it. Guess they never heard of - if it ain't broke...I will be happy to take the old line off their hands at a steep discount. Happy to help :-).
Great! More to obsess over! I can't seem to get enough, but still have some sizes missing from my collection. When is enough enough?
I dropped the lid of my stock pot the other day and the knob broke into pieces. So there will be an improvement? I sure hope so. I know their deal on warranty so not even bothering at this point.
