Le Creuset Skillet

Any cook can go from good to great with the right kitchen equipment. A worn-out skillet or knife will only make life more difficult, but high-quality cookware can be a big investment. If you've been looking to replace some big-ticket items in your kitchen, now is the perfect time to buy from Sur La Table's summer sale. And the first item I'm adding to my cart is this cast-iron skillet from Le Creuset.

The Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron Skillet is the perfect piece of equipment for any meal (Sur La Table, on sale for $100). Cast-iron skillets are great for searing meats or sauteing vegetables in recipes like this Steak with Glazed Carrots & Turnips or Spinach & Cheese Breakfast Skillet. It's also oven-safe, so you can easily transfer from the stove to your oven without using another dish. Plus, a good cast-iron skillet will last a long time if you take care of it properly. (Learn how to clean and season a cast iron skillet here.)

While you're adding the skillet to your cart, take a look at the other Le Creuset items that are on sale too. This 3.5 quart curved oven comes in three color options (Sur La Table, on sale for $200), and this signature braiser comes in five color options and could be used for poaching, searing or roasting foods (Sur La Table, on sale for $180).

Sur La Table's summer sale won't last forever, so check out the sale while you can. And once your kitchen equipment has been upgraded you can find recipe inspiration for cast-iron skillets here.
