In a discussion about bad customer service in the Philippines over at Sassy Lawyer’s Journal, Paul the Unlawyer posted a totally off-topic comment asking if I had tried cooking with Le Creuset. I knew that Le Creuset cookware was made of cast iron but I wasn’t quite prepared for what it had done to cast iron.
This is enamelled cast iron cookware and tableware and stoneware for baking in the most amazing colors. For instance, there’s this Le Creuset Petite Blueberry Casserole (that’s an Amazon affiliate link). I started drooling. I was hoping, very fervently, that Paul asked because he was a local distributor and he wanted to get me interested in the product. Le Creuset isn’t exactly cheap and if I can get it from the distributor locally, well, that would be great, wouldn’t it? But Paul is not a distributor, as it turns out. And that started the long and painful process of finding out if Le Creuset is available locally at Rustan’s or some other retailer of high-end cookware.
After so many hours of searching and reading, well, I’m disappointed. Haven’t found any information about the local availability of Le Creuset. If you know of anyone selling them locally at reasonable prices, please let me know. I think I’ve found the perfect birthday and Christmas giftsssssss (yes, all those s’s) for myself.
