Le Creuset’s enameled cast-iron pots and pans are a tried and true favorite of professional chefs and home cooks alike. They conduct heat quickly and evenly, they clean up spotlessly, they can go from the stove to the oven, and they will outlive even you. All this means they usually come with a pretty high price tag (even though we’ve also said that they’re worth it at full-price). But why pay full-price for a soon-to-be family heirloom when you can get it on-sale? We found a Le Creuset sauteuse oven marked down from $300 to only $180. It’s a slightly smaller, shallower version of their standard size Dutch oven, coming in at 3.5 quarts instead of 5.5, but is still great for braising, searing, sauteing, and baking. And it’s even better for certain dishes too, like baked pasta where the goal is an ideal ratio of topping to inside, or risotto where the shallower sides allow you to stir more easily. Whether you already have a Dutch oven and want a sidekick for holiday side dishes, or you’re a household of two that wants to dig into cozy meals all season long, now’s the moment to snag one — and since it’s on-sale in ten different colors, you’ll find one that matches your kitchen.
