Cotton On: our new pure-white Cotton collection with matte finish

Le Creuset Cotton White

We love cotton! Just the word alone evokes the sweet smell of sun-dried sheets fresh from the clothesline and conjures up a sense of purity and simplicity. Cotton has been the fabric of our lives through the ages, and it has a timeless, tactile beauty. It is also something that improves with use and age. What better name, then, than Cotton for Le Creuset’s gorgeous new range of pure-white cast-iron casseroles and oven-to-table cookware.

Pure White Cotton

Inspired by the simple, natural beauty of cotton and guaranteed for life, this elegant colour complements any interior style, from modern and minimalist to classic or casual. The sculptural quality and sinuous lines of Le Creuset’s cookware really stand out in the Cotton range, which has a delicately textured matte finish that is 100 percent contemporary.

Bright White Interiors Trend

Le Creuset’s new Cotton is bang on-trend as white-on-white decor is staging a comeback. Architectural bright-white interiors call for minimalism or a spare, reined-in decor scheme that oozes chic restraint. These crisp, clean spaces are calm but not cosy. For those who just aren’t getting that grown-up vibe, though, there’s still hope. Add a hit of colour (a sunny Soleil or fabulous Flame, perhaps) and watch everything that isn’t white pop into focus. Try combining architectural white with natural wood, or bright white with vivid brights – gorgeous!

Light and neutral Cotton blends with every colour of the spectrum and reflects brightness in any space. Create a streamlined statement by going pure Cotton all the way, or pair it with your favourite Le Creuset colours for a striking and fresh contrast. We love the way the new Cotton range gives you a blank canvas to colour with a lifetime of delicious meals!

    I got married in 1952 and got some pyrex dishes as wedding presents. I had 8 children and we used wood and coal stoves.The pyrex dishes were used for many years and was worth the money paid.Time has passed and only one gravy boat left. Think i could do with the cotton hamper, and after i pass on the family can inherit same.

    The Le Creuset Cotton range inspires me to entertain. Not the chaotic ,overly complicated entraining of guests but rather the relaxed and serene entertaining of loved ones. Entertaining the requires little more than the slow roasting of lamb, blanching of beans and perhaps a tart to finish. All made in cookware beautiful enough to be served at the table ,set ,of course, with white linen. It also inspires me to think of a blank page, a fresh start, rebirth and new begins an idea that even the non-religious can find comforting. White Cotton is the perfect back drop for an Easter celebration.


    WOW! This range is stunning – every meal looks so delicious. Presentation really does make a huge difference when enjoying a meal.

    I received a Le Creuset pan and jug that my daughter had won at a competition. I kept watching MasterChef and decided to start using the pan. Well I am sold, the food tasted great. To clean the pan and jug is so easy. You can put it in the oven with ease. To have a collection like this, wow would make your cooking for life an inspiration. You will never want to cook in any other pots and pans but Le Creuset. The cotton colour collection will fit in with any colour combination in your kitchen. Plain simple and unique.

    I am a sucker for white. White crispy linen, white crockery, white porcelain floor tiles … as long as it is white I cannot resist it. I am absolutely over the moon – white cotton cookware!
    I can imagine the table setting in white and silver with le Creusette’s white range! Add any other colour to it depending on the occasion, it will still be a winner. A clean, white shiny kitchen with the white cherry on top! Can’t wait to see them!

  7. My Mother teach me to cook in Le Creuset, the food is so delicious ,and the cotton white my word so beautiful and my mother was a Chef in Switzerland and i only learnt the best out of it with the Le Creuset pots, the roast so tender and soft, hope my dream comes true to get the pots.

    When I saw the opportunity to be part of this cotton experience I knew I had to enter. I am a young inspiring chef I love cooking with bold, outgoing and bright colours and to have the cotton range be part of that passion i have would let me cook up a storm for my family with the best kitchen equipment i could think of to add that va va voooom would be my dream come true.

    Oh my HAT!! I am completely in love with the new Cotton range from Le Crueset.I have always coveted a set of this cookware, and especially in white. Just looking at them has inspired me to get out all of my Gran’s old recipes, all covered in splotches from her days of preparing scrumptious meals, and cook some delicious meals for my family.

    My favourite place to be is at my diningroom table, surrounded by family,sharing a meal,reminiscing and creating new memories.

  11. I want to set my big table outside under the trees with a checkerboard design of all our Le Crueset dishes and pots, alternating colour with white cotton range, filled respectively with the matching coloured food in the crisp white vessel alongside white food in the coloured vessel. Example: red & white striped beetroot in the white pot alongside the red heart shaped dish filled with white meringues, green Romanesco Precocci cauliflower in the white pot next to my green dish of grated white kohlrabi….and so on – And then, have a feast with eyes & mouth. YUM!

    Le Creuset’s cotton range has inspired me to go out and add to my “collection”, I received my first ever Le Creuset product the Spatula Crock, as a very unexpected gift from a very dear friend last night. The question she asked me yesterday was “think kitchen” and colour and I chose “white”, I am so thrilled I did. It looks absolutely stunning in my kitchen. Cant wait to hit the shops.

  13. Gail Geldenhuys

    This range is stunning, beautiful and very desirable. I love the name as well as I love all natural products. This range inspires me to the point that I want to just feed all my friends and family. I would be standing in the kitchen all day, what a pleasure and cook and bake to hearts content.
    With all the fabulous Le Cresuset products who wouldnt, it is stylish and classy. Anything made in a Le Creuset comes out right even if you failed at the recipe.
    Imagine your diningroom table laid out to perfection, all white,glass and silver and you bringing your lovely food to the table in that beautiful white dishes. The pots are so beautiful that they dont have to stay in the kitchen, they are also welcome on the table. I can swoon about the range all day long, but would like to enjoy it myself.
