Le Creuset makes some of the world's most beautiful Dutch ovens. They're solid and chic and they come in such an array of colors that many people have spent hours trying to figure out what color of Dutch oven they want to use for the rest of their lives. (They last forever, so it's basically a lifetime commitment.)
But Le Creuset is a lot more than Dutch ovens. That heavy cast iron casserole might get a person through winter, but now that it's summer Le Creuset is thinking of ice cream.
Le Creuset's new Sorbet Collection is inspired by retro ice cream shops, and it's full of trendy stoneware ice cream dishes, ramekins, mugs, and more, in six pastel shades including Coastal Blue, Cool Mint, Chiffon Pink, Mimosa, Dune, and Cotton.
The whole collection is safe for use in the microwave, dishwasher, and even the freezer — which is great because you can prep your dessert bowls in advance and take them out when you're ready to serve.
It's all pretty inexpensive for Le Creuset, too. There's a set of six pastel mugs for $75 and a set of six espresso mugs for $50. Those mugs look sturdy, and like the sort of thing a person would use year-round, too.
A set of six miniature ramekins perfect for ice cream, pudding, eggs, or mini cakes is just $30. A set of four footed ice cream bowls costs $60, a set of four mini cocottes (that look just like tiny versions of Le Creuset's famous Dutch ovens!) costs $80, and a set of six pastel stoneware teaspoons to match the other sets costs $30.
There's even a twee little set of magnets that look just like the mini cocottes for $20.
