Why Buy Le Creuset?
Le Creuset is a brand that has truly earned its global following and stellar reputation as the king of cookware.
Born in 1925, the near 100-year-old company continues to create its original enamel-covered cast iron crucibles in that signature Volcanic hue (inspired by the molten cast iron inside the foundry moulds) and a range of vibrant new shades, as well as adapting with the times to produce lines of tableware and kitchen tools. Whilst the price-point is higher than your average Argos saucepan, these beautifully crafted items remain incredible value for money as Le Creuset’s signature products come with a lifetime warranty. And when we say “lifetime”, we’re talking about the product’s lifetime, not yours, as these heirloom treasures that can be handed down from generation to generation, and if they become defective, they will be replaced by the company.
Durable and attractive, these kitchen classics are a true pleasure to cook with and their bright colouring makes them natural centrepieces for any meal.
Le Creuset Christmas Gifts
To be quite honest, any Le Creuset product is bound to make the Christmas of a loved one who enjoys cooking – it’s really not possible to go wrong with the signature range. However, we’ve decided to put together a small list of our top choices for any budget.
Le Creuset Cast Iron Soup Pot Holly
This is part of a new limited edition festive range showcasing the brand’s iconic cast iron and stoneware piece delicately embossed with a holly design. Whilst it’s labelled as a “soup pot”, this beauty can be used for so much more: from hearty soups, casseroles and curries to slow-cooked or roasted meats, rice or pasta bakes and even pies. The world is your Le Creuset pot.
A true workhorse, the Le Creuset Cast Iron Soup Pot is fit for the oven, hob, induction and the grill, retaining heat for even cooking and keeping your delicious creations warmer for longer at the table. The nifty heat resistant knob (up to 250°C) and quick-clean enamel interior add to its overall user-friendly nature whilst the tight-fitting lids helps boosts moisture and enhances flavour.
Available in two colours – a rich cerise red or clean cotton white – this is a fantastic 26cm pot with a lifetime warranty that holds up to 4.1 litres. A fantastic edition to a food-lover’s kitchen and perfect for those warming winter meals.

Le Creuset Cast Iron Oval Casserole
Possibly the most iconic and versatile of Le Creuset’s offerings, this oval pot is large enough to roast a whole leg of lamb and narrow enough to leave space in the oven for extra trimmings. Available in three sizes (25cm – 29cm/ 3.2 – 4.7 litres) and 13 colours, this is by far our favourite Le Creuset creation and always gets an “Oooo” whenever brought to the table.
Like its other cast iron family members, it can be used in the oven, on the hob, with induction or under the grill (as well as being dishwasher and freezer safe); it is super easy to clean; it locks in moisture; and also boasts an ergonomic, heat resistant knob. Le Creuset Cast Iron Oval Casserole is perfect for family mealtimes and special occasions alike, retaining heat fantastically well and effortlessly lending itself to the attractive presentation of your meal. What’s more, the lifetime guarantee will ensure that it will help feed and warm bellies for generations to come.
