Just when you think Aldi can’t give us any more goodness (those beauty dupes just keep on coming), it goes and brings back the sellout cast iron kitchen range that flew off the shelves when it was in stores last year.
Customers say Aldi’s cast iron cookware gives ultra-luxe kitchenware brand Le Creuset a serious run for its money, not least because it offers an extremely similar range of colours and shapes as the high-end brand for a fraction of the cost. And seeing as we’ve all been cooking up a storm at home more than ever before, we could all probably do with some brand new pots and pans to flex our newfound cooking skills in style.
This latest iteration of the line for 2020 introduces two brand new colourways, plum ombre and matte black, as well as bringing back an old favourite, grey ombre. The range has also been extended to include new sizes of favourite products such as the Shallow Casserole Dish as well as some new must-have products such as the Stoneware Mugs, available as a set of four espresso cups or two mugs, perfect for your morning cuppa.
With prices starting from just £3.99 for either set of mugs (one Le Creuset mug would cost you £15, for comparison), there are 10 new cast iron cookware items to shop in the range.
We predict the heavy duty Cast Iron Casserole Dish with matching lid for just £24.99 will prove popular, especially considering its Le Creuset investment counterpart would set you back £240 – that’s nearly 10 times the price. And we love the look of the £9.99 mini casserole pots, perfect for serving up individual portions in impressive style.
Also available in the gorgeous new colourways are a large roaster (£19.99 instead of Le Creuset’s £180), smooth and griddle skillets (£14.99 each instead of £125) and griddle trays, making all types of cooking perfectly possible at home.
As if that’s not enough, there’s also a colour coordinating range of wooden and silicone utensils to complete your kitchen kit, starting from as little as £1.99.
You can now pre-order some items the range online, ahead of the official launch date of 10 September, when it’ll also arrive in stores. However, you know the drill when it comes to a SpecialBuy – they’re a limited run, and once they’re gone, they’re gone, so place your order sooner rather than later.
Here are some of the items you’ll be able to get your hands on, but for the full range check out the website:
