According to the website of Le Creuset, the brand has been producing vibrant cookware since 1925.
Many Costco enthusiasts expressed their surprise on social media upon seeing this particular brand for sale, as it seems to have gained popularity among culinary experts and aficionados.
A finance and tech content producer recently shared in an X post, which has now amassed over 21.5 million views, that Costco is offering a "Le Creuset 157-piece Ultimate Cookware Set" priced at $4,499.99.
The post on X states, "Includes Dutch ovens, dinnerware, French press, utensils, 6 assorted frying & saucepans, two stockpots, kettle, & more - 1 to 2 weeks to deliver - Costco also offers a L.C. 9 pc. stainless steel collection for $500, 9 pc. nonstick collection for $400, & a 21 pc. stainless steel collection for $1,400."
The cost of this bundle is steep, yet each piece breaks down to less than $27 per kitchen tool — a value seldom associated with a Le Creuset item.
Devotees of the French cookware brand and the bulk retailer have already cleared its online stock.
Trying to view the 157-piece set on Costco.com results in the product having "broken the internet" with a 404 error code.

According to the wholesaler's website, this offer encompasses cookware, bakeware, dinnerware, serveware, and additional accessories.
The product's description elaborates, "This exclusive set includes cast iron, stoneware, stainless steel, toughened non-stick PRO, silicone and much more."
Given the extensive size of the delivery, Costco provides a "pallet delivery" when one buys the item.
While other Le Creuset products remain accessible online, certain items are exclusive to members only.
