    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 within everyone’s price range.

    Cast iron cookware is renowned for its durability and heat retention properties. This makes it as practical as it is stylish. Aldi’s fabulous new range is available in three contemporary kitchen colours – Matt Black, Grey and Plum Ombre.
