I love how elegant and timeless the Le Creuset pot looks, but for someone who doesn’t really consider cooking a passion, it’s hard for me to justify dropping cash (they cost a whopping $ 400). Although I don’t think cooking is a hobby, I like to keep beautiful things around my house so that I can try recipes that catch my eye. That’s why I jumped into the market for a Le Crucet Dup so I could make hearty soup, mac and cheese and much more if I was tempted.
One thing I find when investing in any kitchen item is what color they come in. I know this is probably the last thing most chefs think, but I have a running theme of mint green / sky blue pieces to decorate my house. Something about color calmed me down, and when I discovered this scam on Amazon that not only had 12 different colors available but had over 26,000 five-star reviews, I knew it was worth checking out.
Dutch ovens come in three different sizes depending on your needs. You can take it in the form of 4.3-quart, 6-quart or 7.3-quart. Prices range from $ 44 to $ 68, so if you carry the largest, you’ll save more than $ 300 by choosing this Le Creuset option.
“I have pieces of Le Crucet and stub,” one buyer wrote. “It’s very close, it’s hard to think of buying more expensive alternatives for stock making, bracing, etc. It’s also very nice to look at.”

This cast iron Dutch oven comes with a lid and is safe to heat the oven up to 400 degrees, making it perfect for slow cooking. The 4.3-quart version will be perfect for side dishes and will include whole food frying. If you are trying to serve a large one in a roast or soup, choose larger sizes. One customer who bought the 7.3-quart size said, “Very nice! It is heavy and large enough to fit a whole chicken. I’m definitely going to buy more in other sizes. I’m very happy about that. “

Each container comes with a one-year Amazon warranty, so you can go to town using it and see for yourself how much it holds. But we don’t want you to be dissatisfied. Another buyer wrote, “There’s nothing I like about these pots that are tough and well made and really affordable.”

What really stands out for me is the fact that many of the reviewers own pot-brand Dutch ovens that are similar, so they can compare.
“I own several Le Crucettes of different sizes. They are bigger or smaller than this one. This is perfect for me in 6 quarters, ”wrote one reviewer. “I admit that I was skeptical about buying from the warehouse, but the price was very tempting! Shows one of the best products I’ve ever had – I give it 10 out of 10. “
If you are looking for a deception that will hold up over time, this is the way to go.
