To be blunt: We think it’s worth investing in a heritage brand like Le Creuset. Yes, it’s *expensive.* However, their products also *last* for an exceptionally long time. For example, their enameled cast iron cookware is still made in their proprietary factory and inspected, making sure each piece is top-notch.
But just because something’s worth its full price doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good sale. To that end, we were happy to see Le Creuset offering a number of discounts on items that have come out on top of our equipment reviews for October Prime Day. Here are 6 things we think are worth buying.
A Fast, Stylish Tea Kettle: Le Creuset Enamel Demi Tea Kettle
This tea kettle boiled water the fastest in our tests and it’s induction compatible. Plus, it looks beautiful sitting on your stovetop and a number of its colors are discounted (to varying degrees).

A Beautiful Bread Oven: Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Bread Oven
This bread oven bakes up seriously beautiful loaves. It also has low sides for easily adding and removing bread (so singed knuckles—ouch!). We were hesitant to give it our full recommendation because of its price, however now that it’s on sale it may be well worth it for the avid bread baker.

The Best Braiser: Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Braiser
A braiser will become one of your go-to pieces of cookware. It can bake! It can shallow-fry! It can roast, sear, simmer, and braise! Think of it like a cross between a Dutch oven and an enameled cast iron skillet.

Adorable Espresso Cups: Le Creuset Stoneware Espresso Mug
Senior commerce editor Riddley Gemperlein-Schirm gave these espresso mugs to her parents many, many years ago—and the cups are still going strong. They’re chip-resistant and look adorable propped on top of an espresso machine. Right now, the Deep Teal color is discounted.
Seriously Durable Dinner Plates: Le Creuset Stoneware Dinner Plates
These plates are a part of one of our favorite dinnerware sets. In our tests, they didn’t scratch or stain and testers commented on how fancy and flashy they looked.

The Best Dutch Oven: Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Dutch Oven
Is this still expensive for a Dutch oven? Yes, but as we said above it’s built to last. It also browns well and has exceptionally roomy handles. For most home cooks, the 5.5-quart will be a good size.
