Each year the Le Creuset Black Friday deals and discounts are one of the best chances to pick up amazing savings on many of the brand's iconic—but often, pricey—items, including casserole dishes, cast iron roasters, bakeware and more.

Le Creuset's cookery items are without doubt some of the most expensive around—but the price does denote the quality of each item. They make some of the best cookware sets available by far as there's a reason why couples request their products year in year out as wedding gifts - because the timeless pieces come with a lifetime guarantee.

All Le Creuset products come with a warranty and guarantee - whether you got them discounted or not - so the Le Creuset Black Friday deals are a great time to pick up their top quality products for less. Last year on Black Friday, the brand offered up much of their product range, including their bestselling stainless steel pans, kettles, and chic cafetières, for 40% off for the entire Black Friday weekend. So this year, we're hoping to see matching discounts.

Will there be a Le Creuset Black Friday sale in 2022?

Cooking and baking fans rejoice—it has pretty much been confirmed that there will be Le Creuset Black Friday deals come late November 2022.

The brand themselves stated on their website (opens in new tab), "Black Friday is over, but we have big plans for next year. So, be sure to keep an eye out for our updates."

This was to be expected—Le Creuset have been participating in Black Friday for the last few years. In fact, the brand have recently renamed their Black Friday sale as 'Colourful Black Friday', as an homage to their product's signature bright colours.

It's worth noting though that the Le Creuset site isn't the only place to pick up a bargain. Retailers that stock the much-loved French cookware brand usually offer big discounts too, including Amazon, Selfridges, Bed Bath and Beyond, La Redoute and John Lewis in their Black Friday sales too. 

Black Friday this year is on 25 November 2022—but based on previous years, we expect to see discounts on Le Creuset products begin a few days before this. The sales will likely continue into what is now known as 'Cyber Monday' (28 November), rounding out the Cyber Weekend sales.

What Le Creuset products were in the sale last year?

Last year there were discounts on most products from Le Creuset's wide range, though some of the biggest deals were to be found on their cookware items.

Stateside, their Classic Oval Dutch Oven was reduced from $350 to $210, down by a huge $140. Their Classic Saucier in an elegant gray color also saw a big discount of $96, on sale for $144 down from $240.

Le Creuset cookware sets also saw big discounts during Black Friday last year—their 11-Piece Ultimate Cast Iron Set was reduced by an enormous $650, while their Toughened Nonstick PRO 6-Piece Set also saw a $205 saving. 

Over in the UK, the Le Creuset 3 Piece Set saw gradual reductions over the weekend, eventually being sold for £161 off at Potter's Cookshop. The brand's best Non-Stick Saucepan & Lid Set with three pieces included also saw a great discount at John Lewis. It was originally on sale for £345.60, but was reduced to £288.

Plenty of kitchen accessories saw great Le Creuset Black Friday deals in the UK too, so we're hopeful for of the same for 2022—after all, they make for great Christmas gifts for parents who love cooking. For example, the Le Creuset Gourmand cast iron fondue set saw a £47 reduction, going from £235 to £188 last year. The brand's Tagine with Cast Iron Base and Stoneware Funnel Lid also went from £249 to £174.10—a saving of £74.90.

In general, most items saw a discount of up to 40% in last year's Le Creuset Black Friday sale, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that we see similar savings this year too.

What time of year does Le Creuset go on sale?

Le Creuset deals tend to float around during different times of the year. For example, the brand often run out-of-season clearance sales, selling their last season items at a discount to make way for new collections.

Often, Le Creuset items will also be discounted during major shopping sale periods, such as—of course—Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You'll likely also find discounts at the end of the summer, in January (post-Christmas), and during Amazon Prime Day.

But it's likely that you'll see some of the biggest and widest-ranging discounts during the Cyber Weekend; from Black Friday until Cyber Monday. This is because a wide range of retailers that stock Le Creuset, such as Amazon and Wayfair, all take part in this shopping event too—so you'll have your pick of products to buy at a bargain price.

Where is the best place to get a Le Creuset casserole dish for cheap?

The Le Creuset casserole dish (or dutch ovens, as they are called in the US) is a cookware icon thanks to its long-wearing, keep-forever cast iron construction, and wide range of vibrant colors. Suitable for stews, roasts, soups, casseroles and baking, this one-stop cooking wonder retains heat for even cooking and browning, and keeps meals warmer at the table for longer. 

The only downside to Le Creuset's casserole dishes is their price—with the largest size normally retailing at $685/£405. Which is why the Le Creuset Black Friday deals are the perfect time to invest. 

The least expensive Le Creuset casserole dishes to buy during the Black Friday sale are actually on the Le Creuset website itself—with the brand offering up to 40% off over the Cyber weekend last year.

Other retailers you can rely on to deliver great Le Creuset deals throughout the year include La Redoute and Amazon, both of which offered some seriously good Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts last year and so are definitley worth adding to your watch list in 2022 too. 

Why is Le Creuset usually so expensive?

Le Creuset cookware is enduringly popular, but it is undeniably pricey. That is why, when you can get their products for less during sales such as Black Friday, you should probably snap it up—especially if you've had your eye on something specific, such as their induction pans or one of their best cast-iron skillets for a while.

But why are they so expensive? As a premium cookware brand, Le Creuset charge premium prices for the products—and for good reason. They are truly built to last, meaning you get what you pay for. Most of the brand's cast iron, 3-ply stainless steel, toughened nonstick and bakeware products come with Le Creuset's lifetime policy. So if they ever break or you discover a fault, the brand will repair or replace your item, no matter how long you've owned it. In the case of Le Creuset stoneware products, the brand also offers a 10-year guarantee.

The items are said to be delicately and diligently made and checked, which is one reason for their high quality and resulting cost. It's even reported that, at the Le Creuset factories, each product is checked by at least 15 employees before it is approved for sale!

Many of Le Creuset's products are made to be passed down through generations—you might even own a Le Creuset given to you by a much-loved family member. In short, they are usually a worthwhile investment that will likely last you far longer than cheaper cookware.

Is Le Creuset worth it? 

In short—yes! Investing in high quality cookware means it will endure for years to come, and will mean you won't need to re-buy items after a short time. It may be more expensive initially, but a sturdy stoneware dish or pot like the ones offered from Le Creuset should last for years (if not decades), without breaking or chipping. Plus, there's no denying they look chic, and are utterly timeless.

And while there's no denying that Le Creuset makes for great Christmas gifts for mom or Christmas gifts for your mother-in-law, for example, it's also worthwhile considering investing in one for yourself—especially if you enjoy cooking and often work between the stovetop and the oven (most of Le Creuset's cookware can transfer between both).

Plus, as an added bonus, Le Creuset pots and dishes can often become collector's items, especially if they are particularly hard to find. So your item could actually increase in value...though we make no promises!
