Invest In Some Professional Cookware

The best place to buy french cookware is in France. However, if you can not travel to Paris, do not fret, you can start your French cookware collection by surfing ebay for le-creuset pots new and old. Do not be put off by buying a second hand le creuset pot, because they last and last and last.

Better still when you search on ebay keep an eye on items listed incorrectly spelt "le crueset". Lots of people spell it incorrectly and you can grab yourself some incredible bargains. Because le creuset pots are incredibly heavy it is a good idea to consider where the item being sold is located as postage and shipping can add up. Copper pots also last and are worth looking for on ebay as well.

There is much more to French cookware than ramekins, gratin dishes and copper pots. Good quality French cookware not only enhances your cooking it is also an incredible joy to use. What makes French cookware so irresistible is that it is made for a lifetime. It is not about disposable products. It is about buying products you can use for a lifetime and then pass on to your children who can then pass it on to their children. Chuck Williams, founder of Williams-Sonoma loves French cookware.

If you are lucky enough to make it to France, the most famous cookware store Dehillerin pronounced "Day-le-ran" is the top restaurant supply store for all Parisian chefs. It is located in the area called Les Halles. Its proper address is 18-20 Rue Coquilliere, First Arrondissement, Paris 75001.

When you vacation in France next, pack lightly and with an additional suitcase inside your main one. Allow yourself a few hours to shop and buy some famous French cookware that you will be able to enjoy and that your children will get to enjoy when you are long gone pushing up daisies.

American visitors often remark that you can get better kitchen utensils than you can get at Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table at half the price. And remember you can claim your VAT refund. If you can not get there you can order online at
