I've been in love with Flame Le Creuset for years and years, my grandmother had a set and I fondly remember her using them almost daily. I decided a few years ago to buy two sauce pans on ebay. My husband picked up on the fact that I LOVE them all and has set about to slowly but surely add to my collection.
This year for my birthday he bought me a bean pot by Descoware, which is the precursor to Le Creuset and was eventually bought out or driven under by Le Creuset.
The other pieces are all Le Creuset some second hand, some new, all loved.
Peace and Love--
