Le Creuset cookware factory seconds are retail items that have minor manufacturing flaws, such as a chip or bubble in the finish, or a paint color that does not meet the manufacturer's standard. Factory seconds sell at Le Creuset Outlet Stores, typically at a 30 to 40 percent discount.
Customers can find the nearest Le Creuset Outlet Store by clicking on the Store Locator icon on Le Creuset's website and entering a zip code.
The Chow website suggests calling the store and asking when its next sale takes place. During these sales, customers often may be able to save an additional 40 percent off the already discounted price of factory seconds.
