This is not a drill: the new Le Creuset colors for 2024 are here. The famed French cookware brand is always surprising me with their new takes on classic colors, and their two latest options don’t disappoint in the least.

Le Creuset have long made some of the best Dutch ovens in the world, and part of that success is the wide range of colors that work in a variety of different kitchens. Rhone and Chambray are no exception, bringing an unctuous burgundy and cool, calm blue-gray.

However, don’t just take my word for it: I’ve rounded up several of my absolute favorite pieces from both color collections, so you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about.

New Le Creuset color collection

The first new color to grace us this February is Rhone, a red-plum colorway inspired by the lush wine-making region of Cotes du Rhône. Le Creuset has also added beautiful gold accents to the cookware for a touch of elegance and luxury. With tones of cherry and red wine influences, this brand new color will add warmth and richness to any tablescape.

Crafted from the brand’s signature enameled cast iron, this pretty pan has oversized handles for a secure grip. In fact, you’ll be able to use this cast iron as both a braiser and sauteé pan, thanks to its curved, sloping sides.

For those trying to go a bit more minimalist this year, the new Chambray colorway is a relaxed blue with cooling gray undertones for a laidback take on traditional hues. I’m particularly obsessed with this color, since it adds ombré influences and blends into any space with ease. It’s sophisticated and neutral, yet demure.

Too many cooks can spoil the broth, but there is absolutely no such thing as too many baking trays in the kitchen—especially if they’re all in this calming Chambray shade. The set includes one 12-and-a-half inch dish (or 4-quart capacity), one 10-inch dish (or 2-and-a-half quart capacity), and one 7-and-a-half-inch dish (or 1-and-one-tenth quart capacity), so you can bake or roast anything you desire, from a rich batch of brownies to a whole bone-in chicken.
