It’s officially fall, which means Uggs are considered formal wear and pumpkin spice is a food group.
For those hoping to fully embrace fall vibe and fully lean into the aesthetic, pumpkin-shaped cocottes and serving dishes are certainly having a moment among lifestyle influencers. The options range from pricey French cookware lines Le Creuset and Staub all the way to decent Amazon dupes that don’t do the work of the Dutch oven, but are definitely good enough to serve stuffing from.
The search for gourd-themed kitchenware is also complicated by fast sell-through rate on stock (which can drive up the price on some items). As these are kitschier, trend-focused pieces, the dupes are just as in-demand as the name brand cookware and there’s a few.
The Le Creuset pumpkin cocotte
For nearly 100 years, Le Creuset has been a classic and quality line that novice and professional chefs rely on. Le Creuset’s cast iron pumpkin cocotte is all over social media and fans of the venerable French cookware brand are coveting the seasonal line. Availability is limited and the other colour schemes are not available in Canada. $300 for 2L pot at Le Creuset.
The Staub pumpkin cocotte
Staub’s cast iron cookware is still made in France and the 3.5L pumpkin-shaped pot is seasonal but not in a hokey way. The matte black and gold handle makes for a chic addition to a kitchen. Also available in matte orange. $349.99 at Amazon.
