Le Creuset's iconic tea kettle is 50% off right now (Update: Deal expired)

Steep tea, not prices during the French cookware brand's Factory-to-Table sale.

Le Creuset's Factory-To-Table sale is happening right now, and the timing is an absolute *chef's kiss*. The legacy kitchen brand has dropped prices on a few of its bestsellers, and they should all arrive in time for Mother's Day

You can treat Mom to a 3.5-quart Dutch oven for $183, for instance, which is $122 off the normal price. There's also a handsome 4.5-quart soup pot for $186 (normally $310) and a $50, 2.5-quart casserole with retro appeal. But my top pick goes to the iconic Le Creuset tea kettle in denim blue. It's currently half off, marked down to $50 during the sale and will make any tea-drinking mom or motherly figure smile. 

Le Creuset has become something of a kitchen status symbol over the years, but that's mostly because this French cookware producer has been making some of the best enameled cast-iron cookware for nearly a century. The cast-iron pieces are built to last a literal lifetime -- seriously, these things get passed down through generations. Oh, and they look pretty great, too.

Le Creuset

I can't think of a more charming gift than this Le Creuset tea kettle. We'll occasionally see this model drop down to $70, but $50 is about as low as it's ever likely to go.

Le Creuset

A Le Creuset Dutch oven isn't just a reliable and versatile piece of cookware, it's practically a family heirloom for many home cooks. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal on this enameled cast-iron oven, available in this calming Caribbean blue. The larger 6.75-quart size is also on sale, currently marked down from $234 (normally $390).

Le Creuset

Just as good a deal as the Dutch oven is this enameled cast-iron soup pot. The 4.5-quart pot is down to $186 (normally $310) and is available in a dark dune blue or oyster white. If mom is a serial soup-maker, this is about as good a gift as you'll find. Much like the Dutch, she can also braise, roast and bake with this versatile pot.

Le Creuset

Made for a casserole queen, this Le Creuset heritage casserole baker in funky, retro green would be an excellent gift for Mom -- or yourself. It's 2.5 quarts, so not enormous, but perfect for smaller casseroles, holiday sides and crispy cobblers.
