I recently found out by accident that Marshall's and TJ Maxx sell Le Creuset Stoneware. I went there looking for clothes and decided to browse randomly through the kitchen section and saw some sitting there. Now it's hit or miss as to what they will have, if anything at all, but what an awesome score! So far I have picked up three different types of stoneware and will grab more next time I see it. This stuff is amazing and beautiful. UPDATE: I have since picked up a few more pieces and am still extremely happy with it. It's incredibly durable and comes clean so easily without even having to put it in the dishwasher. Everything I have used it for has baked evenly and I love all the different shapes and sizes I can get it in. Will definitely pick up more any chance I can find it at a discount. Definitely a must have for anyone who bakes. Performance Love this stuff to death and I can't get enough. I wish I could have everything they make. From the smallest petite cups to the large casserole dishes they all perform so well. Ease of Cleaning Pretty easy to clean, but sometimes requires some soaking for the tough spots. A bit of soap and water usually does the trick though. Durability It is stoneware, not iron, and can break or chip but if you handle with care then you should have no problem. I have yet to have any issues with the pieces I have. Design BEAUTIFUL! I guess everyone has their preference as to design but I think these are gorgeous. Not only functional but look great too. I love the fact you can pull it straight from the oven and put it on the table and it makes a statement. I also love that you can get it in a variety of colors. Doesn't Stick No major problems with sticking.
