Indigo LC @ Sur La Table in Signature line

blondelle Dec 28, 2011 06:34 PM

I don't want to say they introduced a new color as I believe Indigo is an older color. Maybe it's SLT's answer to the Aubergine at WS. The LC dull and dreary collection continues although the Indigo looks like a pretty nice color. BTW, they started putting their regular LC line on sale as only the Signature line will be available soon.

    I have the Indigo and was pretty bummed it never made it to the main stores here in MA. It's a beautiful deep dark blue that reflects its color under light. I think I purchased mine in 2000 or 2001 from the LC outlet.

      Yaaay! It's my favorite color.

      Boo! They're not making the 4.5 qt. round oven.


      Yet, there's a 4.5 qt. in Midnight Blue on the LC website: http://cookware.lecreuset.com/cookwar...

      Another kiwi/lemongrass situation?

        Jay, the Midnight Blue and Indigo are very different. The finish on the MB is a pearlized metallic finish almost like car paint. It has tiny silvery particles in the enamel.

          blondelle, was the midnight blue a Bloomie's/UK exclusive a couple of years back?

            Yes, but wasn't that long ago.

          I looked at the link - that indigo looks like the faded color of the newer LC line. I prefer the solid color of the old line. A bit disappointing but oh well.

            Mine is solid color, too, which I so prefer to the graduated colors. Also, I googled <le creuset round french ovens sur la table> and Sur La Table doesn't carry any in 4.5 qt., not even Flame.

              Jay, Bloomies has the 4.5 oval on sale now for $99.99.

                I'm not seeing it, blondelle. Thanks for thinking of me, though.
