Hold us: Aldi is releasing a $23 crock pot that's a dupe for a fancy $429 one.

Crock pot lovers, rejoice.

Aldi is releasing a $23 crock pot on Saturday, and it’s being compared to a very fancy Le Creuset version.

The crock pots were previously released in 2018 and were said to have sold out “within seconds”.

Following the 2018 sale, Aldi Lovers Australia posted an image of the Aldi pot to their Facebook page, eliciting a range of comments about the sale.

“There were about 30 people lined up including me ready for the doors to open. Dutch Oven and French pans were all gone in seconds. Wish I had of got the French pan also,” one woman commented.

“My local store pretty much sold out of the 20cm and 28cm pans this morning. In fact a family filled up 4 trolleys with these,” wrote another.

Instagram bargain hunter Luxe and Lemonade is further a huge fan of the range.

“I’ve had mine for over a year and swear by it,” Luxe and Lemonade told her followers. “I’ve been pretty impressed.”

Speaking to Mamamia, she added that it’s almost identical to her mini Le Creuset.

“I use it for pretty much everything. Soups, stews, veggies, bolognese, curries, chilli,” she said.

“The quality is equal to that of the Le Creuset one (I have a mini one which cost me my unborn child) and cannot tell the difference if I tried,” she added.

She also added images of the pan to her Instagram story, raving about the quality of the Aldi pot.

She even compared the pot to the $429 Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Oval Casserole dish.

There are two pots to keep your eye on in the sale.

The first is the $23 3.7L Cast Iron Dutch Oven crockpot.

It boasts a durable three layer enamel coating and is oven safe to 200 degrees, as well as being dishwasher safe.

The crockpot is suitable for all stovetops, and comes in black, red, white and blue.

It's 23cm by 12cm excluding the lid, which is perfect for a big batch of chilli con carne.

The second is the $25 3.2L Cast Iron French Pan.

Much like the pot's bustier brother, the French pot offers a three layer enamel coating, is oven safe to 200 degrees and is dishwasher safe.

It's available in all the same colours and is 30cm by 6cm (again excluding the lid).

We see a frittata on the horizons.

The sale starts this Saturday June 1 at all participating Aldi stores.
