Found this Le Creuset being given away for free. There are no markings on the bottom. Is it real?

    More info:

    I found this today when walking through my neighborhood. I caught a glimpse of the red enamel at the bottom of a box of stuff labeled “FREE” on the curb in front of someone’s house. I’d been wanting a dutch oven for braising meat. Even though this isn’t a dutch oven, I think I’ll be able to do some of the same stuff in it, – so I was pretty excited to find it.

    It didn’t occur to me that it could be fake until I started googling how to clean it and came across some articles about fake LC. They all said that the first sign that one is fake is if there are no markings on the bottom, and this one doesn’t have any markings.

    But then I found what seems to be the exact same product on the Williams Sonoma website, but there are no photos on the bottom:

    This one that sold on Poshmark also looks the same and has no markings on the bottom:

    At this point, I’m pretty sure it’s real (and it’s just a William Sonoma exclusive that doesn’t have marking on the bottom for whatever reason), but the articles about fakes and posts on this subreddit made me doubt myself so I figured I would post here and ask.

    I’d appreciate any insight you might have!

    It’s real. I’m not sure what the style is called but it’s from the classic line. The underside of the tab style helper handle is marked with France 30.
    It’s similar in size to the 3.5qt braiser, only the braiser has curved walls and a heavier lid, and obviously the handles are different. It will work fine as a braiser/ shallow Dutch oven.

    Why would it be fake?

    Well that’s exciting! The lid looks like it’s well marked. Not sure about the bottom. But definitely a score no matter what!

    WOW!! I can’t believe someone didn’t want this pan and set it out on a curb for anyone to take? I just bought this pan for $325 at Williams Sonoma. I have the matte white version and it’s a really a great pan. Perfect for shallow frying and braising but it has a nice deep cavity. That’s a nice find OP. Congrats!
