|Thrifted Le Creuset gratin dishes, sizes 36, 32, 28 and 20 (times 2)|
Aside from my giant round french oven, my other 'go-to' piece is a gratin dish that I thrifted awhile back. And while it's perfect for small servings, I've been on the lookout for a larger one that will hold even more goodies.
My jaw hit the floor when I walked into a local Goodwill a few days ago and found this set staring back at me in the front case. When I turned them over, I was thrilled to find the ubiquitous Le Creuset diamond and telltale "made in France". I wasted no time putting them on hold while I scoured the rest of the store for more goodies...which was a good thing since I found the fifth matching 20 cm gratin on the shelf.
I'm always on the hunt for vintage Le Creuset, but it's rare to find a complete set, and in such pristine condition. Aside from missing porcelain on the handle of the smallest gratin (which doesn't matter in the least to me), the other 4 pieces looked like they'd never been used (up until now, as I've already used them twice in as many days!) I have a feeling these pieces will be seeing a lot of oven time!
