Le Creuset has been having a lot of fun with Disney lately. After the successful launch of two Disney Princess collections, Le Creuset has announced that its newest limited-edition project is a Mickey Mouse collection in honor of the mouse's 90th anniversary.
The new Mickey Mouse Round Dutch Oven is covered in a bright-red enamel finish with a Mickey silhouette applique around the sides, and a stainless steel knob with Mickey Mouse right in the center of it.
The Mickey Mouse Dutch oven sells for $350 at Williams Sonoma and Le Creuset stores, and at LeCreuset.com.
There is also a set of two Mickey Mouse stoneware ramekins in red and black. Those are just $50 for a set of two 7.5-ounce ramekins, and they could be very useful. They could be nut dishes or mini serving dishes for things like baked macaroni and cheese or cornbread. They're great for desserts like crème brûlée, too.
The Le Creuset collaboration seems to have been a big hit with Disney fans.
The new Mickey Mouse Dutch oven comes on the heels of a series of Disney Princess-themed Le Creuset products. Last February Le Creuset created a bright-blue Dutch oven with roses and a knob that said "Be Our Guest" to celebrate the premiere of the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, and that one was so popular that in September they released another limited-edition version of the Beauty and the Beast Dutch oven in yellow. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in November Le Creuset even came out with a giant cast iron cocotte shaped like a bright-red apple.
They're going to have to produce a Ratatouille-themed Le Creuset someday, aren't they? Now that the mouse is in the kitchen, Disney's beloved cooking rat can't be far behind.
