There's always huge demand for Le Creuset cookware and especially during autumn and winter when entertaining moves from the garden and back indoors. The trouble is – and there's no getting away from this – Le Creuset cookware isn't the cheapest. But, of course, you are paying for fantastic quality.
The good news is that there are often a selection of Le Creuset sales running (though they do tend to come and go). We've checked out the ones that are running now and we've linked to the best of them below.
Black Friday Le Creuset deals: what we expect to see
This year, Black Friday lands on Friday 29 November and we'd expect the Black Friday deals to include some great Le Creuset deals.
Last year, Amazon ran some Black Friday discounts on Le Creuset, including up to 50% off cast iron dishes, so we'll be keeping an eye on the Amazon Black Friday deals this year to see what's on offer in the cookware department.
In the US, Le Creuset celebrated Black Friday with its own 'Colorful Friday' with discounts on casserole dishes, saucepans and more so those offers may well return. We'd expect similar offers from Le Creuset UK.
In July, Macy's discounted Le Creuset cookware in its 'Black Friday in July' event, so it's likely we'll see more discounts there on the actual Black Friday.
In the UK, as well as looking to Amazon and Le Creuset's own site for deals, we'd recommend keeping an eye on John Lewis. Check out UK retailer, The Hut, too as it ran Black Friday offers on Le Creuset in 2018. The same goes for Harts Of Stur.
One place you won't find any Le Creuset deals this Black Friday is Debenhams as the store has informed us that it no longer stocks Le Creuset. Neither will you find any at Marks & Spencer as a) it does not stock Le Creuset and b) it does not do Black Friday sales.
As for when the Le Creuset Black Friday deals will break cover, I'd start clicking through to the links above from a week before, so from Friday 22 November as we're expecting most retailers to kick off their sales a week or even more before Black Friday itself. And if you completely forget to look during that week, all is not lost because the sales may continue through Cyber Monday on 2 December.
You don't have to wait for Black Friday to get a good deal, though. Read on for the best Le Creuset sales on now...
Le Creuset sales on now: UK
Some of the best Le Creuset deals can often be found at Le Creuset's own site. Right now, there's a fantastic promotion taking place where you can get 20% off a number of saucepan sets including stainless steel, non-stick and cast iron in a number of colours as well as 2 for £15 on ramekins, 4 for 3 on egg cups, 4 for 3 on dinnerware, which includes dinner plates, pasta bowls and more.
Note that the '20% off selected cookware sets' promotion ends on October 6.
The Le Creuset Online Exclusive Sets section is definitely worth a browse if you're after sets rather than single items. There are some lovely cast iron starter sets on offer right now, ranging from three-piece sets up to a 10-piece stainless steel set at 30% off.
A selection of the offers are listed below – note that other colours are available.
- 3-Piece Starter Cast Iron Set Satin Black | Was £543.00 | Now £365.00
- 5-Piece Cast Iron Essential Set Satin Black | Was £1,018.00 | Now £698.00

Onto the Le Creuset sale at John Lewis. The retailer has offered some really nice deals in the past and right now you can get 205 off stoneware oven dishes, cast iron casserole dishes, mugs, teapots and more. So it turns out that our prediction last month that you'd need to wait for the Black Friday deals to get cheap Le Creuset from John Lewis was wrong, wrong, wrong.
What is right, sadly, is that you won't get any good Le Creuset sales at Debenhams any more as of September 2019 the store no longer stocks the brand.
Over at Ecookshop there's a Le Creuset clearance sale going on with a handful of Le Creuset items reduced, including a cast iron starter set (that classic skillet and casserole dish combo) at 50% off, wine cubes for 50% off and baking dishes up to 30% off.
Harts of Stur is offering 25% off when you buy two or more qualifying Le Creuset items and The Hut has a 40% off homeware limited time promotion where you can save on coffee mugs, casserole dishes, frying pans and more. There are over 100 items in the The Hut's promotion and we do not know when it ends so you might want to hurry.
Also, take look at Amazon UK's Le Creuset discount page where the deals change frequently. As of October 2, there are only two featured deals but this page changes regularly so it's worth clicking through to see if that has changed. (And there are bound to be lots more offers at Amazon for Black Friday.)
Finally, if you're ever passing a TK Maxx store, it's worth popping in to check out the cookware section. As with everything in TK Maxx, there's quite a random and ever-changing selection of stuff in the section but Le Creuset is one brand that does seem to pop up there quite regularly – you might just not get the exact item or colour that you were hoping for, but you will get a good price.
Le Creuset sales on now: US
If you're in the US, then you should definitely check out the Specials on the Le Creuset US site. Right now there are some great savings to be had on a range of pan and bakeware sets, so you could save hundreds of dollars as your upgrade your pots and pans. There's also 20% off dinnerware and more promotions such as free shipping and a metal bakeware sale.
There are some good deals on Amazon US, too.
We're not sure how long any of these deals will last, so if you're planning to entertain friends or family and you want to do it in style, you might want to hurry.
