Le Creuset finally launched an affordable cookware line

Paste-hued pots and pans can give a kitchen a spring boost.

Le Creuset, the notoriously pricey French cookware brand beloved by chefs like Julia Child, Ina Garten and Martha Stewart just launched a (relatively) affordable pastel collection. The new Sorbet Collection includes sets of ice cream bowls, spoons, covered cookware and mugs under $100.


A single Le Creuset Dutch oven costs $300, so anything under $100 is actually a deal.

But why is it usually so expensive? Known for durable, colorful pots and pans, Le Creuset’s signature cookware is made of stone, which allows for even cooking temperatures and prevents scorching.

The stoneware pieces can also be put in the freezer, microwave, oven, broiler and dishwasher.

Child famously covered her peg board kitchen walls with copper pots and pans, but the most eye-catching piece in the space was the fiery orange Le Creuset pot that always sat on the gas range. She is to thank for a lot of the brand’s popularity, according to the Independent.

An orange Dutch oven similar to Child’s will cost about $380, though. Yikes. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, we loved Lodge’s $45 model. The Apilco Provencal casserole dish from Williams Sonoma is pretty good too (but don’t put it on the stove).

If you dream of Le Creuset, and are looking for a way to brighten up your counter, the new kitchen staples from the Sorbet Collection provide charm and functionality.
