~Calling all foodies, supermarket Aldi has launched a brand-new cast iron cookware range, offering shoppers hundreds of pounds on potential savings, compared to similar models from premium cookware brand Le Creuset. The range will be available to pre-order online from 16th September, and can be found in stores and online from 20th September, but be quick as once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Each item in the range is crafted from cast iron and suitable for use with all heat sources, including gas, electric, induction hobs and even solid fuel cookers – they can also be placed in the oven up to 200 degrees Celsius.
Cast Iron cookware is valued for its durability and heat retention properties, particularly amongst professionals, but can be expensive. Aldi’s latest range aims to offer budding chefs the chance to cook with cast iron, with a selection of stylish and naturally non-stick skillets, grill trays, frying pans, tagines, roasters, and a casserole dish starting from just £12.99.
With the most expensive item in the range costing under £25, Aldi’s range is purse friendly and offers a saving of £644 for a casserole dish, shallow casserole dish and tagine against comparable products from luxury kitchen brand, Le Creuset.
