Cookware in France

Jump to last reply

We are visiting Disneyland Paris with the kids later this week. I would like to pickup a LeCreuset or Staub dutch oven. Does anyone know whether a trip to the factories are worth the side trip? We are arriving in Calais from the UK by car (so weight isn't an issue). There is a factory in/near Merville for Staub, but I am unsure if it is open to the public. The factory for LeCreuset is in Fresnoy-le-Grande. I know there is a factory outlet for Staub in Alsace, but obviously that isn't on the way.

I realize I am not saving a ton of money, but thought it would be a fun keepsake/souvenir to have and use all the time (I like to cook). Plus I do have the benefit of the exchange rate (£ to €)... What I want to know is the price at the factory better than somewhere normal like Monoprix (not sure if they sell it) or La Vaissellerie when we go into Paris for a day.

I do have plans to check some Emmaus shops before I buy to see if I can find some there... Any tips?
