For the first time ever, all Le Creuset cookware at Williams Sonoma is on sale. Yes, the fancy, French brand — which is basically the standard of excellence for enameled cast-iron cookware, according to chefs and home cooks alike — is officially marked off 20 percent, though we found a bunch of items that are closer to 40 percent off. That includes pans for frying and grilling, a classic 5.5-quart Dutch oven for $288 (anything under $350 is a pretty good deal), and a $14 stoneware mug. Plus, there are a bunch of other under-$100 items that we think would make thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts, like a French press for the mom who loves coffee, a tea kettle if she prefers something herbal, a salt crock if she has a savory tooth, and a baking dish that we’ve described as perfect for foodie moms.
