Taste of Home shopping editors keep coming back to Le Creuset cookware. Aside from dozens of pretty colors to choose from (I’m looking at you, lavender collection), the French brand has been perfecting cookware for almost 100 years. Heirloom quality, ergonomic handles and an easy-to-clean cast iron interior make their coveted Dutch ovens iconic additions to any kitchen. Hold onto your chef hats, because they also just launched the classiest colorway yet. Allow me to introduce you to Le Creuset shallot.
This warm-weather shade is a creamy, dreamy pink hue that’s muted enough to match tons of kitchen colors. Reminiscent of a rosy latte, the color borrows a sweet and subdued neutral look from its namesake. Pair it with other colors from Le Creuset, or let this subtle splash of spring shine on its own by stocking up on the entire collection.

Pots and pans aren’t the only things in Le Creuset’s catalog. A French press is one of the best ways to make a strong cup of coffee. Immerse coarse grounds in water and then press through a mesh sieve for the perfect flavor.

Move over, matte navy—this mug set looks absolutely stunning in shallot. Normally priced per cup, snagging this set of four stoneware mugs saves shoppers $20.
