Craigslist Find: Le Creuset Roasting Pan

I have had my eye on the large sized Le Creuset enamelled cast iron roasting pan for some time. I liked the fact that it could be used to sear meats on the stovetop, and then placed in the oven for roasting without having another pan to wash.

Luckily for me, a Craigslist seller recently listed one in great condition, with its box and original pamphlet. The #40 pan is white in colour, which will match my vintage Le Creuset saucepot. A new pan of this size is around $200 at places like Amazon, and I scored mine for a cool $30.

Inspired by my newly acquired piece, I roasted a duck in my new pan. I am sure I will get plenty of use out of this roaster with the holidays coming up!


  1. Wow, girl, that duck looks awesome!!! And the pan too. You're inspiring me to roast a duck. Good fall/winter food.

  2. That is a wonderful find! God knows how much Le Creuset goes for these days! This is probably at least 150$

  3. The duck tasted great and I think I'll try it again to refine it (Grandma's recipe, modified by Mom, and now me!). I'm really happy with the pan and can't wait to try a few more recipes with it.

  4. Oh my goodness what a find this is! I was lucky to receive one of these in dijon colour from my staff this Christmas. In Canada the large size retails for $300 with the tax. I am sick that they paid that but absolutely love it. Your duck looks fantastic btw, I'm yet to christen my pan.

  5. @Steph, I'm also a fellow Canadian, and you're right, I went into the Williams Sonoma in town and saw my exact same pan for $289 before tax!

    I hope you blog about your first use of the pan!
