The cookware that won't max out your credit card

The day I own a Le Creuset dish, is the day I can officially say I've made it. That and a Soho House membership, obvi. The epitome of real adulting and having a nice paycheck, if you're cooking a coq au vin in one of these famous French Dutch ovens, then congrats, you're well on your way to a life full of fancy dinners and an impeccable Instagram feed. 

Le Creuet's new Matte Navy Collection, in particular, is my favorite to date. This dreamy blue color has coated all of the brand's cast iron cookware and oven-to-table stoneware, including casserole dishes, skillets, and soup pots. Since they'd match the rest of my blue dinnerware, I just have to have one. 

But boy are they expensive. A classic Le Creuset enameled cast-iron dutch oven is $350 (at its cheapest price), and I'm not quite ready to stick cookware on the credit card. So instead of giving up on my deep blue mealtime dream, I've shopped around for a few dupes that do everything the Le Creuset does at a fraction of the price. 

Oh, and if you want to do the most and live out your chic chef life, I've found a pretty genius Le Creuset dupe TikTok hack I can't stop thinking about down below, too.
