Le Creuset launched its signature Flame color in 1925. Now, if you check out the site, you’ll find Flame — and a veritable rainbow of cookware. There are two additional red-ish-oranges, at least five blues, a yellow … I’ll stop, because you know how rainbows work. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from working with the brand for the last 15 years, it’s that there’s always room for more colors!

And that’s what brings me here today: a new color! The brand just teamed up with the folks at Williams Sonoma to launch Olive. The brand already had the recently-ish-launched Artichaut and Sea Salt, but nothing like this. It’s a bright, briny green with that subtle ombré fade that Le Creuset has perfected. Here, let me show you.

Look at that Olive green! I got the scoop and was told that the team was inspired by European olive groves when they came up with the new color. Makes sense. Just looking at this pot makes me want to grab one and whip up this one-pot pasta puttanesca. Can’t you taste the olives?

I love the Olive green on its own and how well it complements most of the brand’s other colors. Olive with Oyster? Duh. Olive with Azure? Yes, please! Olive with Nectar? Absolutely! My point: You can mix and match this color with the pieces you may already have at home. Speaking of pieces, the Olive will be available in 10 classic Le Creuset pieces, including four Dutch oven sizes, Kitchn’s favorite braiser, and the skinny grill our readers love.

Like I said, this new color officially launched today. And you can shop it online through Williams Sonoma.
