Macy's is having a huge sale on Le Creuset cookware right now

Le Creuset first introduced its colorful enameled cast iron cocotte in 1925 and ever since, the household brand name has been known for creating beautiful, yet durable and highly functional cookware. However, it's high-end name often comes with a steep price tag, so when it goes on sale, we pay attention.

Le Creuset cookware is some of the best of the best. This specific cookware piece made its way on to Oprah's Favorite Things in 2014, although the brand has made it onto her list several times over the years. Even Julia Child was said to be a fan! The stovetop and oven-friendly French oven helps cook large meals evenly; it's perfect for meats, stews, chili, slow cooking and more. All Le Creuset pieces also come with a lifetime warranty. 

One Macy's reviewer wrote about the enameled cast iron French oven: "Le Creuset makes the best cookware for my money! They are beautiful, easy to clean and very versatile - you can bake bread in them, saute, braise, bake and cook on the stovetop with them. I like that even after cooking something that potentially could be very hard to clean, the mess washes away easily. Often, I will 'soak' the pot overnight before cleaning: I put a small amount of water in the dirty pot, put the lid back on, and the next day it will be a breeze to clean! The hardest thing about Le Creuset is deciding which pretty color to buy!"
