There are some cookware brands that are instantly recognized as more covetable than others — and Le Creuset likely sits at the top of that list. Since their launch nearly a century ago, Le Creuset pieces (their beloved Dutch oven in particular) have become iconic. In addition to their top-tier quality, that’s why their items make for such great gifts. Honestly, anything with the Le Creuset name attached to it is bound to impress the home chef in your life, whether it’s something as large as their Round Wide Oven or as small as their Pinch Bowls.

Expectedly, the larger items do cost a pretty penny, and while a number of our editors have confirmed that they’re worth it, they might not be within your gifting budget. It’s a good thing that they have plenty of under-$100 gems, though! Le Creuset’s Mini Cocottes Set is guaranteed to be a hit with your giftee. It comes with four versatile bakers and a cookbook — and it’s on sale for just $90. Find out more about why you should grab it before Mother’s Day arrives.

What Is the Mini Cocottes Set with Cookbook?

The brand’s eight-ounce mini cocotte might just be the most multi-functional piece out of all of Le Creuset’s offerings. That’s what our Senior Commerce Editor, Ian, discovered after trying one out for himself. You can use it as a serving bowl for individual meals, snacks, or desserts. Speaking of the latter, the durable stoneware results in exceptional oven-baked dishes, which the included cookbook will give your giftee inspiration for.

“My girlfriend especially loves them for making late-night treats such as mug brownies or single cookies, and the added cool factor of Le Creuset makes midnight snacking all the better,” Ian’s review reads

They’re safe in the freezer or fridge for storing leftovers, too, and clean up quickly with their nearly-nonstick interior. The cocotte can even turn into a stylish catch-all or jewelry holder, if your giftee doesn’t find a use for all four in the kitchen. Thanks to their sleek design and vibrant colors, they won’t look the least bit out of place as decor around the house.

What Le Creuset Shoppers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.4/5

“Love this set — wonderful for individual servings of plain or fancy stews, gratins, terrines, mac & cheese, pudding, even to serve soups and ice cream. And the gorgeous Provence shade makes them beautiful little things. Haven’t tried most of the recipes yet, but they indicate that these are safe to heat to at least 400°F. And maybe the book has been revised from the earlier reviewer’s edition, but I saw only two or three recipes that required any unusual ingredients or tricky prep. Wonderful gift, wonderful set.” — arejay

“Wonderful small dishes for individual serving sizes.” — Big B

“I use for desserts, soups, and soufflés.” — Leigh

Considering all of the cocotte’s uses, this gift set is a total steal — especially while it’s on sale. Two colors are already out of stock, so be sure to snag this perfect gift before it’s gone! Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away, after all.
