I just purchased an enameld cast iron mini cocotte (LC) and was wondering about the color of it. The description said it was blue. I assumed it was the cobalt blue. But this blue is not the gradient color of the cobalt. It is just a solid blue. I don't have a cobalt LC piece to compare it too, but it seems like it could be the lighter color of the cobalt. My little pot is a medium or medium dark blue with a little bit of a gray cast. I tried looking up different shades of blue of LC and the closest color that I could find might be the Horizon blue.
If it is the cobalt blue, are some of the pieces not shaded? In most of the pictures of the enameld mini cocotte, the pot looks to be shaded.
The only colors that I can find on line in this little pot is flame, red, and blue. (Well, I saw where one store carried that odd grayish color.)
I was a little disappointed that my little pot was not the shaded blue color, but it is cute anyway. And I am very curious about the shade of blue that I have.
I am still anxiously awaiting my 7 quart caribbiean blue round oven. That and my new little mini pot are my first LC purchases.
Has LC been making these mini enameled cast iron pots for a long time, or are they a new thing for them?
