Le Creuset serveware 50% Off, Flame and Coastal colors

Deal Link:
Savings:
50%
Retailer:
Le Creuset
While prices are still high even with 50% off, Le Creuset has very high quality and good looking items. Currently all Flame (orange) and Coastal (blue) serveware are at 50% off. Make sure you filter by colors as only those two colors are on sale. Currently waiting for the Cerise (red) to go one sale : ).

These are pretty nice :

Set of 4 Minimalist Mugs https://www.lecreuset.ca/en_CA/set-of-4 ... 4-352.html

At half price, is it worth it? I've had a non stick saucepan from creuset and liked it very much.
I bought this exact wok at homesense for 180$ earlier this year. Their marketing is all about how the non-stick is super tough, but when you read the manual, it's a lot more nuanced: You can put it in the dishwasher but probably shouldn't. You can use metal tools (very rarely) but really you should use silicone.

Moreover, the wok doesn't really get hot enough to be considered a wok. I like it for stir-frys and such because there's a lot of room and the shape means stirring is easy with no mess, but I'm no chef.

Other than that, it's well built and has a limited lifetime warranty.

What's wrong with it?

i don't think i'd ever use metal on these things or put them in the dishwasher anyway.

I have an older version of the stainless steel frying pan. It’s great.

I’m still trying to get a replacement from Staub that keeps advertising 40 year warranty. Staub’s customers service (zwilling) is complete shit and they don’t answer phone calls/emails. I guess they must be non-essential service...since they started.

  • Wok cooking requires high concentrated heat at the bottom of the pan; nonstick pans require you to avoid high temperatures to keep the coating intact.
  • You want to slightly char things when you cook with a wok for that smoky "wok hay"; nonstick is not the best surface for that reaction to occur.
The two are not really compatible. Real woks are generally made of carbon steel which is seasoned like cast iron to have a non-stick* surface. For that kind of money you can get a quality Japanese-made black steel pan that will last you your lifetime, instead of this one which will probably lose its non-stick properties in a couple of years. But I also understand that it is a personal preference and many people prefer the convenience of a nonstick pan :)

*not as nonstick as a nonstick pan.

The ceramicware is quite disappointing and overpriced. They chip and scratch easily (from just mixing with a tea spoon). Also, Made in China, if that matters to you.

I would pick something else that is of better quality and cheaper, unless your goal is to colour match with your pots. The pots are great.

Must have been a bad batch, my experience we use 4 of the classic pasta bowls (with ridges) for the past 4 years daily, sometimes multiple times a day and every night in the dishwasher and when they come out they look practically brand new! In the same time span we've disposed of probably a dozen IKEA and Mikasa bowls and plates due to chipping and they weren't even used as heavily as these 4 lowly pasta bowls.

I might try the new smooth pasta bowls hopefully the quality hasn't changed.
