Oval Dutch Oven
Of course, this signature item is first on our list of the best Le Creuset items. Say hello to the Dutch oven. You can get this kitchen essential in many colors and just as many sizes, ranging from 2 and 3/4-quarts to 15 and 1/2-quarts. Plus, the toned knobs and oval shape add an extra touch of sophistication. This beauty ranks high on our best Dutch ovens list, too. Fill it with soups, stews, casseroles, breads, pot roasts or any of our favorite Dutch oven recipes.
Mini Cocotte with Flower Lid
This stunning mini cocotte puts the petal to the metal! Part of Le Creuset’s new seasonal collection, the miniature enameled pot comes in 10 stunning colors, including a delicate lavender and chiffon pink, and it washes safely in your countertop dishwasher. Thanks to its small size, it’s easy to stow, but even so, we deem it pretty enough for a permanent spot on your countertop.
Vibrant Cast-Iron Skillet
Flower Cakelet Pan
Take a nibble out of spring with this shaped mini cake pan. Different from other Le Creuset items, the pan is made of carbon steel rather than cast iron, but its results are equally stellar. The product doesn’t warp, bend or over-brown your baked goodies. What it does do: Create flower-shaped cakes gorgeous enough for your garden.
Olive Branch Saucier
Sure, you know Le Creuset for its bold colors, but there’s something to be said for the brilliant white hue of this olive-printed saucier. The flat white enamel really lets the olive branch motif stand out on this pan. And we think the design would fit in any kitchen, whether you consider your aesthetic more modern farmhouse or traditional Mediterranean.
Oval Roasting Pan
One of the best Le Creuset items acts like a skillet, baking pan and serving dish all in one. The shallow cooking surface of this oval roasting pan is ideal for stovetop cooking or baking in the oven. Ingredients are more exposed to heat, making it easier to achieve a crispy top and evenly cooked inside. Plus, it sits pretty on the tabletop, too.
Looking for a great all-purpose pan that’s somewhere between your two favorites—a cast-iron skillet and a Dutch oven? Enter: this Le Creuset braiser. The everyday pan is perfect for all kinds of cooking techniques. Use it to sear, simmer, saute, bake and, of course, braise. Pick it up in a rainbow of hues, including the new matte navy.
Flower Petal Vase
Branch out from typical Le Creuset kitchen items with this beautiful flower vase that stuns on a kitchen island or countertop. (Psst! The company’s website says you can use it as a serving receptacle for sauces or dressings, too.) The ruffled edge lends delicate flair, and, of course, it’s made of the brand’s beloved enameled cast iron.
If you’re old-school about rice, add this stovetop rice pot to your set of Le Creuset items. The outer lid promotes moisture circulation for even cooking, while the inner stoneware lid with steam vents ensures the rice and water don’t boil over. Plus, it comes in the brand’s signature colors of orange, blue, black or white to coordinate with any kitchen.
Whistling Tea Kettle
Le Creuset is so much more than Dutch ovens. Just look at this beautiful tea kettle! Coated in enamel, we can totally see this striking teal taking center stage on our stove. (If this hue’s not your thing, don’t worry—it comes in eight stunning colors!) Give it as a gift to tea lovers, as well.
Flower Spoon Rest
This blossom-inspired spoon rest is almost too pretty to splatter. The accessory works hard on your cooktop while also adding a pop of color and plenty of character. Although this item is part of Le Creuset’s spring collection, the sweet shape looks stylish on your surface no matter the season.
Although Le Creuset is known for its rainbow of colored enamel, there’s nothing wrong with embracing their subtler shades. This meringue saucepan looks pretty atop any stove.
Any home cook knows there’s nothing like freshly ground pepper. So why not make sure your pepper mill is just as pretty as it is functional? We love that this gadget comes in a wealth of colors (look at that flame orange!).
Heritage Loaf Pan
Add this loaf pan to your list of bread-baking essentials. The stoneware material heats up evenly, then retains that heat; it’s perfect for bread, pound cakes and even Sunday meatloaf. Snag one for yourself and as a gift for bread bakers.
It can be hard to find a pretty coffee maker, but Le Creuset managed to pull it off! The calming chambray hue of this French press (if that’s your preferred method) is a happy addition to any kitchen. Want pretty appliances, too? Check out the Beautiful by Drew Barrymore collection.
Sweet tooths, we have the newest Le Creuset item for your wishlist. This bold batter bowl, which has the brand’s name emblazoned proudly on its side, is a staple for any baking project—think cookies, cakes and breads. The pour spout and the fact that it’s safe for the oven, freezer, microwave and dishwasher make it especially easy to use.
Let’s settle this once and for all: It is absolutely safe to keep butter on the counter. And if you’re going to do it, you should definitely do it in style with the Le Creuset butter dish. It pairs beautifully with these gadgets for people who love butter.
Baking Dish with Platter Lid
In the kitchen, we love a great tools or gadget—and we love it even more if it’s multifunctional. And if it’s pretty too, well, we can’t resist clicking “add to cart.” That’s how we feel about this lidded baking dish. It’s a gorgeous baking pan, and the lid also serves as a tray. How terrific is that? Bake up some baklava in the pan, slice it, then serve it up right on the lid.
Heritage Pie Dish
What better way to kick off baking than with a new signature pie dish? It bakes pie (and photo-worthy crust) to perfection. It’s one of the best Le Creuset items for whipping up quiches, potpies, casseroles and dessert pies that are as beautiful as they are tasty. It’s a pie-baking essential!
A Le Creuset purchase needn’t be a splurge—and these affordable (and adorable!) pinch bowls prove it. The set of six perks up any tablescape and is perfect for holding ingredients such as finishing salt, fresh herbs and finely diced garnishes. Looking for a deal? Keep an eye out for Le Creuset sales.
