The Le Creuset Kitchen or "The Red Zone"

BC in NC
The list author says: "Our kitchen is 'bleeding' when my wife cooks! I call it the 'red zone' because of all the red pots, pans, utensils, stoneware, etc... on the stove, counters and in the sink. Someone could cut themselves and not know it until the clean-up was done.

It's kind of funny how our collection of pieces began... we were looking for a good stock pot, decided on Le Creuset, and bought two other pieces with it. (On sale of course!) Before the month was out we were hooked on LC. We started looking for sales and purchased a lot when Amazon had some amazing deals like buy one and get another piece free. We also purchased some on Ebay, ShopNBC (when they had Le Creuset) and other stores as well as the LC outlet when they had a great price.

We've done exceptionally well over the past 2 years and, except for a few of the stoneware pieces, have never paid retail for any of the pieces. As you know this stuff is expensive so don't be in a hurry to buy. Get them when they are on sale as there's never a rush to buy a pot! Take my word... sooner or later whatever you're looking for will be on sale. My wife said I had the 'hunter gatherer gene' as I looked daily for the best buys. It got to be a challenge and I looked forward to my hunts after work. Anyway, it was fun and saved us a lot of money! The list provided is not complete; however, it does have most of our finds.

One other thing... the warranty is fantastic... 100 years!! We did try it out on the wok when a handle broke and it was a non event. We called, they provided a return authorization number, we mailed the wok to them and a few weeks later they returned a brand new one! So save your money, look for sales and enjoy your 'zone!'"
