Start cooking for fall in the Le Creuset Pumpkin Dutch Oven (plus some more affordable dupes)

The weather is getting colder, the leaves are changing and we dream of delicious soups, breads and casseroles that will warm our hearts and stomachs as we enter the latter part of the year.

To create these cooking concoctions, you’ll need some great cookware that’ll let you celebrate the season in style. And there’s nothing better than Le Creuset’s Pumpkin Cocotte, an enameled cast iron four-quart Dutch oven that comes with a lifetime warranty and can be used with many heat sources, including ceramic, electricity, gas, halogen and induction.

Although it comes in three colors, the favorite model that really gives the fall look is the Persimmon model, as seen above. Its curves and beautiful moldings will make your home comfortable every time you take it out of the closet, and with that warranty we mentioned, you’ll likely get decades of use out of it and maybe even pass it on. to your own children!

Below you’ll find the classic Le Creuset plus an even cuter mini version for less than 10% of the price of the original, plus much cheaper pumpkin cookware options that will give you vibes. similar to OG at a fraction of the cost.
