Today I went to the Le Creuset outlet in Smithfield. I’ve been slowly building my Le Creuset collection and the outlet is definitely the way to go. They always have sales and deals and coupons and whatnot. And sometimes they throw in some free stuff with your purchase. Also, the store smells like cinnamon. Cinnamon!

Le Creuset ValenciaThis is a limited edition color, Valencia, which I immediately fell in love with. My favorite colors always seem to be the limited edition ones.

Le Creuset RedI’m obsessed with the way the store is organized by color.

Le Creuset DishesAll the smaller items, like the baking dishes and bowls, are on one wall (also organized by color).

We bought a skillet in Valencia, since everything in that color was 35% off, and then we used a 40% off coupon to get a big Dutch oven in Caribbean blue. So for less than what the skillet normally retails for, we got that and a Dutch oven. I might have to go back on Black Friday…

I love the blue, but you’re right, it’s VERY expensive… I have an outlet near me, but they painted the store SO brightly, and then with the bright lights, and the bright colors of the ware… I couldn’t even get to the first section. πŸ™
Hi! New follower! I hope you’ll stop by and follow back! Thanks! πŸ™‚

I don’t own any Le Creuset but I love the colors too! I think my favorite one I’ve seen recently is the grass green one – so pretty! We have two outlet malls within about 45 minutes of us – I should go check them out!

So jealous!! I love cooking with Le Creuset. They are hearty and yet so easy to clean! Next time you go, I might have to fly down and go with you. We have no good outlets in Colorado!

North Carolina is the land of outlet malls, I think. When we were in Wisconsin, there was a Le Creuset outlet on the other side of the state, but we never got around to going there. Now that we live so close to one (well, we live close to two of them!), I want to go there all the time. This is what I get for putting myself on their mailing list for coupons and specials!

I have one Le Creuset pot and a baking dish. I was more, more, more! There is a store in town that sells Le Creuset products and I love going there! They are an investment, but if you take care of them, they will last for a really long time. My favorite is the Cobalt and the Aqua Blue.

Exactly! I’ve found myself replacing my cookware every few years (since I cook so much), so investing in Le Creuset just makes sense–it’s not going to wear out like everything else. Plus, when you get it from the outlet, it’s really not much more expensive than other types of cookware.

We have one large blue Le Creuset baking oven like the one in your picture. My husband uses it weekly for everything from soup to pot roast. It is fantastic. The thing never ages.

That’s exactly why I’m starting to replace my other pots and pans with Le Creuset–I want something that’s going to last me longer than 2-3 years! It’s an investment up front, but I think in the long term, you end up saving.
