This ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Cookware Costs $280

If there’s one dinner party we were dying to attend, it would certainly be the one that Belle was lucky enough to go to in “Beauty and the Beast.”

Forget the White House Correspondent’s Dinner; forget Thanksgivings with family; we have always wanted to experience the magic, the splendor, the spectacle, and the music in the tale as old as time.

Even though we doubt that dream could ever truly become a reality — in real life, cookware just doesn’t burst into song and dance in our experience — luckily, Walt Disney Studios has brainstormed a way to bring at least a fragment of the wonder to life for fans.

Walt Disney Studios has partnered up with Williams Sonoma and Le Creuset to help create a stunning “Beauty and the Beast”-themed cast iron pot just in time for the new live-action movie adaptation to premiere.

As Janet Hayes, president of Williams Sonoma, explained in a press release from Business Wire: “Disney is an iconic brand that brings nostalgia and delight to people of all ages. In partnership with Le Creuset, Williams Sonoma is pleased to offer this special-edition pot to those who loved the original film and the next generation who gets to experience this legendary story for the first time.”

Only 500 of the special, vibrant blue-enameled chef’s oven pots were created. Each pot features an iconic red rose design, as well as a golden knob that is engraved with the classic words, “Be Our Guest.”

From Feb. 24 through March 4, 2017, Williams Sonoma stores across the country will be hosting special “Beauty and the Beast” events as well. So if you are anxious to get your hands on one of the limited-edition pots, and celebrate the launch in style, just grab $280 — that’s how much the pots cost — and head on over to your local store to pick up your cookware and sing along to celebrate the movie.
