Whistling Teakettle Price: R630 A great accessory in the kitchen and practical too, the Le Creuset Whistling teakettle is a must-have in every kitchen. The mild steel with the colourful enamel coating not only brings a splash of colour to your kitchen, it is also easy to clean and hygienic to use. The whistling teakettle is perfect for those lazy Sunday afternoon teas at gran's and can be used straight off the stove top for serving. Fluted Flan Dish Price: R350 Gran's famous tea would be incomplete without her famous savoury or sweet homemade secret recipe treat. The fluted flan dish is made from the most durable of stoneware and ceramic materials and the enamel coating makes it easy to clean, absorbing no odours or flavours. Set of Rectangular Dishes Price: R398 These are the perfect sized dishes for large family meals, when those favourite sides are served. They are also the perfect size for when gran and grandpa have their cosy dinner dates or are looking after the grandkids. All the Le Creuset stoneware dishes can be used not only inside the oven but in the microwave, fridge and freezer, making them ideal for pre-making meals for the freezer or storing leftovers in the fridge. This set of dishes is an essential to your kitchenware collection. Medium Classic Teapot Price: R328 What would gran's afternoon teas be without her trusty teapot? The Le Creuset classic teapot, made of the most premium stoneware and coated with durable enamel, keeps your hot beverages hot, won't drip due to its non-drip spout, and is the perfect shape and size for all of gran's cuppa requirements. Toughened Non-Stick Buffet Casserole Price: R980 The perfect pan for two or more, the toughened non-stick buffet casserole is versatile and easy to use. With its shallow, wide base it makes searing, browning and braising a breeze, plus it can be used in the oven for making grandpa’s perfect roast! Its toughened non-stick surface makes cleaning easy and cooking fun. This is the 'one pan wonder', and is suitable for anything from chicken pieces to a risotto or quick pasta. This one's guaranteed not to leave the top of your stove. All products are available from lecreusetshop.co.za You can also browse for gifts for friends or other family members below:
