You don’t need to be a gourmet chef to know that—when it comes to cookware—there are few things as bougie as a brand-new Le Creuset Dutch oven. Founded all the way back in 1928, the French brand has been whipping up a variety of cookware—especially when it comes to enameled cast iron; its designs are so famous that they’ve even been placed in museums, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. That generations-spanning reputation means that Le Creuset’s cookware isn’t just highly desirable (even Amazon wants to have their own version), it’s also generally pretty pricey. In other words, while most people have a Le Creuset in their family somewhere, it’s not likely that a Le Creuset Dutch oven’s original owner is going to part with it until they literally stop cooking (and we wouldn’t even bet on that).
