The Aldi cast iron cookware is returning this month.

The best-selling cast iron range returns with a newly improved coating and a delicious new shade of pastel pink for 2021!

With the most expensive piece costing just £24.99, Aldi’s range is a fraction of the price of luxury brand rivals, namely Le Creuset.

The range will be available to pre-order online from Sunday 28th February, and hitting stores from 7th March.

Given how well it sold last time around we predict it will fly off the shelves, so don’t delay if you want to cash in on this new cookware. Set your phone reminder now!

A shallow dish like this is ideal for rustling up dauphinoise potatoes (opens in new tab). Le Creuset Signature Shallow Casserole Dish would set you back a hefty £215, so this is a complete steal.

The new pink colourway is also available as stoneware mugs too. Which offer incredible value for money, with a set of two costing just £4.99!

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?

Aldi cast iron cookware offers a saving of £408 if buying one of each of the new products – against comparable buys from iconic French cookware brand, Le Creuset.

At Aldi you can pick up a matching casserole dish; shallow casserole dish and set of 2 mugs for a total sum of £54.97. The like-for-like from Le Creuset would set shoppers back a whopping £463.

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.

I’m Digital Editor here at Idealhome.co.uk, the UK’s leading interiors website. With a career in journalism spanning 18 years, I've worked across fashion and beauty, but found my true calling in the world of interiors. I've spent the last 15 years working with the style teams at Country Homes & Interiors and Ideal Home, both now at Future PLC. It’s with these award wining interiors teams that I've honed my skills and passion for shopping, styling and writing. I've been privileged to serve as an ambassador for the brands on multiple occasions, most recently on Matalan’s The Show and as a presenter at top interiors trend events Autumn Fair and Spring Fair. There’s nothing I don't know about the latest interior trends – whether it’s what colour we should be painting our living room walls next season, or if 'cottagecore' cushions are a good or bad idea! Six years ago I bought my own 'ideal home', a period style property on the Essex coast. It's beautifully decorated throughout (by my Dad) in serene greys with pops of pink and Farrow & Ball Hague Blue – including the Flamingos wallpaper from the New Contemporary collection by Cole & Son. A favourite piece in my home is a marble topped, gold gilded side table – found in a local charity shop – and my latest investments, the drinks trolley of dreams and a West Elm-style coffee table from Aldi.
