Anyone seen any bargain le creuset (or equivalent) anywhere?

My 22cm cast iron stock pot has broken and I need a new one. Le creuset is extortionate so can't afford that (at least not full price) so has anyone seen any bargains around please? I've looked on amazon and they have chasseur ones but even they are pretty expensive.

Obviously it would need to be orange coloured only so as not to commit a mumsnet faux-pas (just kidding - any colour would do - even aubergine grin)

apparently Sainsburys have a range, not sure what colours though or try an outlet store.

Morrisons did do some orange ones (a stockpot and dish), but the stockpot wasn't massive.

TK Maxx sometimes have them, but you just need to keep an eye out. I got a lot of mine in a big set from Makro last Christmas.

A friend in France had the Ikea cast iron stockpot... and it is lovely to cook with (I tried it) and she was raving about it (and is a serious cook who is also loaded so has Le Creuset too!).

This is the one she had:

although there is also this one:

and a similar one a bit larger.

Ooh, that was a quick response - thank you.

The one I had before was a tescos supposidly better quality one but the enamel started to peel off. I already have a massive chasseur one but like a smaller one for dishes like paella and bol.

I looked in sainsburys today but didn't see any so will check out the website.

My nearest ikea is about 3 hours away so not feasable sadly - they do seem to have some decent stuff though don't they.

Hadn't considered tkmaxx so might ask my sister to look in her for me - she always seems to find really nice stuff in there whereas when I go in it's just seems to be full of crap.
