Le Creuset starter piece?

charmdesign | Oct 4, 2011 02:13 PM

I'm considering getting my first (and possibly only–for while anyhow) Le Creuset french oven. I noticed that for $149 I could buy the 5.5 qt at Marshall's however the colors were limited. Lemon was my favorite of the limited color offerings on 'second choix' pieces, but I truly would prefer white as I think this could be something that would go in my kitchen even if I change the color scheme on my kitchen over the years. Also I already have a 6 qt Calphalon stainless pot, I'm thinking I should get the 7.25 qt oven perhaps to have something larger. The deal at Marshall's is so great though it is hard to pass up. But when I think about the fact this may be the only piece I'll own for a long time...Marshall's also carried what I believe to be 9 qts in a chili red color. Looked a little big to me, to store, but the price was only $179. Pay more for the exact color and size I want or go for one of the deals at Marshall's? Cooking requirements would be serve 4-6 with leftovers, ideally. I mostly cook vegetarian.
