Cast Iron Casserole and Grillit Cerise | £180 | Was £300
This is an absolute classic Le Creuset pairing: a cast iron skillet and a cast iron casserole dish and at £180, it's a bargain you can be enjoying for years to come. The 20cm casserole dish is ideal for, yes, casseroles and it's stylish enough to go from oven to table, while the skillet is great for searing meat and vegetables for delicious flavours and appetising good looks. Both can be used in the oven and on the hob and because they're cast iron they're induction hob compatible, too.View Deal
