    Last season’s Aldi cast iron cookware

    Last season the range introduced two highly-desirable shades – Matt Black and Plum Ombre. The range saw the return of the on-trend ‘Grey’ too, meaning every kitchen decor was catered for. We haven’t heard word yet, but we hope these new shades will be returning – as soon as we know, you will too!

    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.

    How does Aldi and Le Creuset cookware compare in price?
