Usually when we hear news from Le Creuset, it has to do with their broad spectrum of stunning cookware colors. This time around is no different, except it might not be what you were expecting.

If you’re partial to the captivating blue-green shade, you don’t have much longer to shop it. On the bright side, however, Le Creuset is hosting a closeout sale, during which you can stock up on their best-selling Dutch ovens, skillets, and more in deep teal for 20 percent off. What’s more, when you spend $250, you get a free water bottle with your purchase!

Anyone who already bakes bread in a Le Creuset Dutch oven will want the next best thing: a Le Creuset bread oven! Our editors tested it, themselves, and can report that it works beautifully thanks to the flat bottom (that doubles as a grill pan) and domed lid. The top traps and circulates steam, resulting in great expansion. Any bread baker will love making sourdough, whole wheat, rye, and more with this handy cast-iron bread oven.

In reality, it's ideal for making soups and stews, as well as simmering large cuts of meat and boiling big batches of pasta. It's also lighter than Le Creuset's cast-iron cookware, and its stain-resistant finish keeps it looking shiny and new through years of use. We also love that the knob on top of the lid is designed to stay cool.
