New in – the Aldi cast iron cookware range that’s set to rival Le Creuset

You can save more than £600 with Aldi's cast iron versus Le Creuset – trust us, this is one Specialbuy range you can't afford to miss!

Get ready to cook up a storm this winter with new premium Aldi cast iron cookware. Cast iron is seen as the crème de la crème of cooking materials – and for that, most people will immediately think Le Creuset. But a kitchen fully kitted out in Le Creuset cookware is the dream for most, and sadly, not in everyone’s price range.

Thanks to this week’s Aldi Specialbuys range, however, cooking with cast iron just got a whole lot more affordable.
