Eiffel Tower Le Crueset Collection

The Crucible

If you like high-end cookware, you know Le Creuset, well known for its high-quality cookware, especially enameled cast iron in a rainbow of colors. Founded in 1925, Le Creuset has honed its craft for nearly a century to produce some of the best cookware on the market. Although founded by two Belgians, it screams both “quality” and “French”. But hang on to your berets: that French look has managed to get even more French with a new limited-edition collection.

Enter Le Creuset’s Eiffel Tower collection. A bit of a play on the company’s heritage, the collection includes two casseroles of different sizes, a braiser, a casserole and a mug. Each is embossed with the iconic Eiffel Tower, as well as a gold knob for the lid of the full-size casserole and braiser, but all include this branding. I do not know what.

Cocotte Signature Collection Eiffel Tower

The cocotte and the braiser from the Eiffel Tower collection are made of traditional cast iron and enamel for which Le Creuset is famous, while the cocotte, the mini cocotte and the mug are made of stoneware. The selection comes in three gorgeous colors cherry, indigo and white, except for the pan, which is not available in indigo.

You’ll also be happy to know that every piece is dishwasher safe and the cookware can handle most gas and induction heat sources, meaning you can cook with them anywhere. In fact, one of the nicest things about them is that you can shove the whole pan or braiser directly into the oven without having to worry about the enamel cracking. Granted, the line is quite pricey, starting at $22 and going all the way up to $370, but that’s the price of quality.

No matter which piece you choose, if you want cookware that’s as beautiful as it is functional, say “yes” to Le Creuset’s Eiggel Tower collection.
