We love Le Creuset all year round, but over the holidays they really come into their own. Who doesn't dream of a Christmas table totally decked out with Le Creuset, presenting your turkey in a jolly red oven dish, the carrots on a platter and the roasted veggies in a matching dutch oven. Lovely lovely stuff.
So when we saw Le Creuset have launched a new Christmas collection – Noël – we had to share with you our fave bits. We are crossing all our fingers they are on offer over Black Friday so keep your eyes peeled over on our Le Creuset sale page this week!
1. Noël collection mugs
Who doesn’t love a festive mug (opens in new tab) that you can fill to the brim with steaming hot chocolate, fresh cream and marshmallows? These make great stocking fillers or presents for teachers – they come in a neat box which makes them easy to wrap! Made from premium stoneware, there are five designs to choose from; Santa Claus, Christmas tree, snowman, reindeer and ornaments, each finished with a vibrant glaze that makes them easy to clean and resistant to chips, scratches and stains.
2. Noël collection dutch oven
The Dutch oven (opens in new tab) is perhaps the most iconic piece from the Le Creuset collection, and this stunning festive-inspired design is perfect for Christmas dining. Individually crafted from enameled cast iron by French artisans since 1925, it can be used for slow-cooking, braising, roasting and baking. The design has been perfected over the years and they are built to last, you can use this Noël design for decades.
3. Noël collection cookie jar and spatular
Ooohh check out this super adorable cookie jar (opens in new tab)! Imagine that filled to the brim with yummy cookies fresh out of the oven, it's basically a practical Christmas decoration for your kitchen. The lid with the gold knob will keep your homemade goodies sealed in tight and proper – no stale cookies here! The jar is crafted from premium carbon steel with a durable porcelain enamel glaze that’s easy to clean those mucky chocolatey finger marks from.
Sat next to the cookie jar, is this charming spatula (opens in new tab) complete with Santa Claus design. A kitchen essential, this spatula is the perfect size for mixing ingredients and whipping up a batter, the head is constructed from hygienic and heat-resistant BPA-free silicone with a smooth wood handle - we love it.
4. Noël collection platter
Platter’s (opens in new tab) are a holiday essential! They are ideal for nibbles and for handing out festive canapes to your friends and family, or simply use them on your Christmas table for cold ham cuts or vegetables. It has a beautiful Santa Claus design and it has a virtually non stick glazed surface that easily releases food for quick cleaning, and the superior heat retention keeps food warm or cold for serving - ideal for festive occasions.
