I absolutely love this Caribbean / Teal colour and have wanted a HUGE casserole for ages for my bulk cooking of dishes such as cottage pie, meatballs, fish bake etc. This is the 28cm casserole which costs $579 in stores such as David Jones. I got mine from UK Amazon for $175, had it shipped to Ireland for free and my lovely Dad brought it over for me on his last visit. Thanks Dad! You saved me $400 :-)
Now for my cheapest Le Creuset find ever! I got this 20cm pot in a Church rummage sale about a month ago, it was marked $2! Look at the lid...
When the lovely old lady behind the counter saw it she said "hang on, there's a chip in it, I'll give it you for one dollar"! I nearly cracked up, this little crack does not affect the function of this pot at all, I actually already have a couple in this colour (posted about here), one the same size as this with a different style lid, but these pots are so fab for cooking soups and making sauces I could never have too many :-)
At the same rummage sale I picked up this lovely 20cm gratin dish for $3! I have 2 round ones in the same style that I use all the time, love them!
And finally, at another flea market a few weeks ago I bought this Le Creuset skillet for $3. It was in HORRIBLE condition, the whole outside was caked in black baked on crap but I knew a good soak and some elbow grease with wire wool and it would clean up a treat :-)
The inside still needs a bit more work but for $3 I'm not complaining!
