Le Creuset in Blue?

citizenconn | Apr 16, 2009 01:52 PM

Can anyone give me some expert feedback on the difference in Le Creuset enameled cast iron ovens in the color blue (and not Caribbean) in the U.S.. I have a lot of "blue" Le Creuset enamleled cast iron but I have a tough time figuring out the actual names of the colors they've had over the years and how to tell the differences in them. I know the current color is Cobalt Blue. And the Williams-Sonoma exclusive blue color is Azure Blue (gradated blue).

I have some older pieces in a solid dark blue called "Electric Blue". And I've bought several pieces claiming to be French Blue, Provence Blue and older Williams-Sonoma Blue. I also have one piece in a very dark, almost purple blue that is even darker than electric blue.

Does anyone have any actual idea on how to correctly tell the differences or know where I can find this info? Thanks.
