Le Creuset’s kitchen gear is timeless in both senses of the word: Their construction is top-notch and long-lasting, but they’ll also never go out of style. The signature three rings are instantly recognizable, as is the gradient coloring that you’ll find on all of its stoneware pieces. More than one color has become iconic, from Flame — which started it all almost a century ago — to Cerise to Marseille. More recent hues are well on their way to becoming classics, like Sea Salt, Chiffon Pink, and Sage.

However, Le Creuset also has to make room for newer colors by retiring others. Inspired by the French dessert it’s named after, Meringue started its run back in 2019 — the ivory hue is a picture-perfect neutral for any kitchen — and now, you only have a little while left to score it before it’s gone for good. However, despite the sad news, there is an upside: Tons of pieces in the color are on sale! Scroll to find out which ones.
