I don't understand the antipathy toward blue. Blue was the "signature" color of Le Creuset produced at the request of Elizabeth David (the color matched that of her favorite cigarette packages)
This is a paragraph from an article in the INDEPENDENT: Secret History of Le Creuset
"The 1960s saw the launch of Le Creuset's first blue, which was, somewhat bizarrely, inspired by a cigarette packet. Elizabeth David, who brought Mediterranean cooking to the UK and was a huge Le Creuset promoter, was responsible. "She was a heavy smoker and her love of the Gauloise cigarette packet got Le Creuset thinking," says Laura Jones, the company's product manager for cast iron. David must have been chuffed – she went on to stock the biggest range of Le Creuset yet in her specialist London cookware shop and from then on, Le Creuset became synonymous with good food."
I have three sizes of the Le Creuset oval ovens in blue.
