Lately, it seems like Le Creuset has been treating us to so many special sales. We saw prices slashed as part of their Presidents Day and Winter Clearance events, which each included reader- and editor- favorites like the versatile Sauteuse, stylish Demi Kettle, and iconic Le Creuset Dutch Oven (which is unsurprisingly one of our top Dutch ovens!). However, there’s one under-the-radar find from the French cookware brand that is on special sale right now and perfect for the busy home cook who loves a one-pot dinner. The Le Creuset Braiser with Glass Lid is more than $75 off right now, which is an impressive 30 percent off the regular price. Plus, if you act before Mar. 14, you’ll receive a free nonstick bundt pan with any purchase over $250. Just use the code BAKING at checkout.

One thing that’s important to know about this braiser is that its counterpart — the Le Creuset Braiser that comes with a cast iron enamel lid — is kind of a big deal around here. That’s because it’s named as our editors’ favorite braiser year after year on the annual Kitchn Essentials: Tools Edition list. This version with the glass lid, however, is lighter and obviously cheaper, so it might be a great alternative for you.

Made in France like all Le Creuset cookware, this braiser is surprisingly versatile despite its name. While it is great for braising, it’s actually an everyday piece of cookware that’s also great for baking, sautéing, roasting, steaming, frying, and more. You can use it on the stovetop or in the oven, as it will retain and distribute heat evenly thanks to the famed Le Creuset enameled cast iron construction. Use it to make a wide variety of dishes, from baked pastas and skillet chicken to roasted veggies and more.

Just like any other Le Creuset staple, the finish is so pretty that you won’t have to worry about transferring food from the pot into a presentable serving dish — just serve straight from this braiser! The smooth enamel surface also makes this piece of cookware easy to clean once you’re done. And coming in at a manageable 2 ¼ quarts, it’s no trouble at all to fit into the sink.

All of this and it’s marked down to less than $200? Whether you already use Le Creuset or you’ve always dreamed of calling one your own, now’s the time to buy.
