Aldi fans, assemble. The Aldi cast iron cookware is back, and we want all of it.
The sell-out cookware is available in three contemporary colours – black, greige and a brand-new teal. Given that the most expensive piece costs just £29.99, Aldi’s new cast iron cookware is a fraction of the price of luxury rivals, namely Le Creuset and Staub.

The best-selling Aldi cast-iron range now comes with even more options. It’s oven-safe up to 250 degrees and will be fine used on all hobs, including induction hobs.
The new collection also has a clean enamel coating on both the interior and exterior to reduce time spent scrubbing. We think the Cast Iron Roaster (£24.99, pictured below) looks so good it wouldn’t look out of place among your Christmas table decoration ideas and trimmings on Christmas day.
It’s currently marked as ‘delayed, coming soon’ on the Aldi site, so keep an eye on it. The cast iron roaster is perfect for taking mid-week dinners straight from the oven to the dining table for ease. A similar Le Creuset cast iron roasting dish would cost £180.
If you’re cooking a big dish for lots of people, opt for the 30cm Cast Iron Shallow Casserole Dish (£29.99). Alternatively, you could go for the 26cm Oval Cast Iron Casserole Dish (£24.99). Another firm favourite is Aldi’s Cast Iron Skillet (£14.99 – also delayed but coming soon), perfect on the hob, under the grill and in the oven. There’s also the Cast Iron Griddle Tray (£14.99) available in a square or rectangle shape.
These griddle trays will add those signature sear marks to meat, fish and vegetables and lock in flavour while helping any additional fat to drain away. Given how well it sold last time, we predict it will fly off the shelves, so don’t delay if you want to cash in on this new cookware.
How does Aldi and Le Creuset cookware compare in price?
The Aldi cast iron cookware offers a saving of just under £700 if you’re buying one of each of the new products. This is when compared with comparable buys from the iconic French cookware brand.
Thanks to these Aldi Specialbuys cooking with cast iron just got a whole lot more affordable.
Not to stir the pot, but you need to be quick – once they’re gone, they’re gone.
