It's Just Perfect!

I have been wanting a nice dutch oven for quite a while.  I have searched the net, Craigslist (ha) and constantly check and often bid on Ebay, but the price is just too high for me.  They are just so expensive!

My dream.......... the Le Creuset Enamel Dutch Oven.....white, of course!

So I was checking out the garage/estate sales this morning on CL and found an estate sale which listed Le Creuset cookware.  I threw on some clothes, scraped up some cash and headed out the door.

I think my heart stopped when I walked into the kitchen and saw it......"It;s mine" (I think I said it outloud).
There were actually 3 in various sizes,  but I decided on the largest round one.

Did I mention that all sales were 25% off today?
I'm so happy!

Isn't it grand?

(Tomorrow everything is 50% off....hummmm!)

Have a great weekend
I'll be cookin'.



  1. Hello Susie,
    What a great find, I also want one of those.
    I want a white one too, if you find another let me know!
    Thank you!

  2. And it's white!!!! Whenever I see one for a lower price it is some hideous color!

  3. How lucky are you?!! I never thought to look on Ebay or Craigslist for these pieces. My husband bought me a few of the red pieces at an outlet store in Florida. Since then I have only added a few things. I am SO happy for you. Happy cooking!


  4. I'm so happy U found it. I've had mine 4 years. If yours or if you should find one that is damaged, U can send them back to the company & they will send U a new one. Congrats on the find.

  5. Doesn't this look perfect in your kitchen? It was meant to be and sometimes it pays to be patient.

    Happy cooking:)
