Hi

It is the same colour. Spinach is marked as the colour on the box.

Guide to LC colors?

Just an update. I bought a Dutch oven in "terre" and it arrived today, the colour stated on the box is "Terre Naturelle/Truffle" so I guess it is the same colour.

Le Creuset - Vert Laurier

Hi

Looking on eBay France I came across a Le Creuset Dutch Oven in a colour called "Vert Laurier" (green bay). On some sites its just listed as Laurier.

Does anyone know anything about this colour?
Is it exclusive to France?
Is it a colour thats called something else outside France?

The name of the colour is not one that I have came across before. It does look a bit like the Crate & Barrel exclusive Spinach colour. However I am no expert, so would be grateful for any info.

Guide to LC colors?

Hi

Sorry found this thread rather late. I have been trying to find details of LC colours and the eBay document is very helpful.

I find it interesting that different countries seam to have different ranges of colours. Does anyone know if "truffle" in the USA is the same as "terre" in France?

I have just bought a duch oven in Marseille Blue and paid the shipping from the states to Europe.

Le Creuset Sales / Pricing

Hi

Pricing seams to vary a lot.

I managed to get a Dijon Dutch Oven 16 cm (1 3/8qt) for £44 (USD$69). The RRP was £90/$141
That was at a Le Creuset outlet store.

I have just (this morning) bought a 20 cm (2 3/4 qt) Dutch oven in cassis with two free Le Creuset gifts (spatula & utensil holder) for £40/$63. The RRP was £110/$172. This was from a online kitchen discount store.

Someone always seams to have some sort of special on Le Creuset. however at least to me you need to look around a bit and maybe not be fussy with regards to the colour.
