I’ve been in love with Flame Le Creuset for years and years, my grandmother had a set and I fondly remember her using them almost daily. I decided a few years ago to buy two sauce pans on ebay. My husband picked up on the fact that I LOVE them all and has set about to slowly but surely add to my collection.
This year for my birthday he bought me a bean pot by Descoware, which is the precursor to Le Creuset and was eventually bought out or driven under by Le Creuset.
I love it.
I have two Descoware skillets in Flame too, I bought them last summer for 10 dollars at a thrift store, completely worth it.
The other pieces are all Le Creuset some second hand, some new, all loved.
Peace and Love–
