Ready to add some new kitchen essentials to the cabinet? The new Le Creuset Cayenne is here to add a little spice to the kitchen. From adding one piece or several, the latest color definitely adds some vibrancy. Who’s ready to get cooking?

For many cooks, Le Creuset is that dutch oven which is not only a cooking workhorse but a statement on the stove. Whether people coordinate the kitchen around a particular color or vice versa, the reality is that color and cooking spark culinary creativity.

Joining the line is the Le Creuset Cayenne. While the brand’s color story is quite diverse, Cayenne adds a touch of vibrancy to the summer. While different from other reds in the rainbow, this hue offers a simmering spicy note.

Although not quite a replication of a spice or a pepper, the underlying orange tones add a touch of warmth. Whether there are peppers in the dish or just a nod to bold flavors, Le Creuset Cayenne might open a whole new taste for culinary exploration.

How does Le Creuset Cayenne blend with the brand’s color story?

While the new Cayenne color adds some zest, it would be lovely when paired with some cool colors in the kitchen. Since this color is a red-orange, a contrast with a blue would make both colors pop. Or, another option would be to consider a neutral like a white. Just like a recipe balances flavors, the play of colors would be stunning in the kitchen.

In addition, the new color looks beyond the primary colors. While a classic red is timeless, this red-orange seems to be almost a new neutral. It piques the interest and welcomes a new sense of discovery.

The new Le Creuset Cayenne is available exclusively at and Le Creuset Signature stores. The color is available in various pieces including the Dutch Oven, casserole and soup pot.
