VICE PRESIDENT Kamala Harris went on a diplomatic trip to Paris, France, and bought cookware from a store in front of the Louvre.
The internet has since been divided over the purchase Harris made.
At the beginning of November, American Vice President Kamala Harris travelled to France for a four-day trip to discuss relations between the two countries.
While she was there, she went shopping at E. Dehillerin, a cookware store near the Louvre Museum in Paris.
According to reports, Harris purchased a number of items, including a copper serving dish that many people on the internet mistook for a Le Creuset pot.
However, a Le Creuset company representative confirmed to MarketWatch that the brand does not make copper cookware.
The actual purchases the Vice President made include the infamous dish - whose price comes to roughly $370 - as well as a copper frying pan for around $158.
In total, her purchases came out to roughly $600, according to reports.
After Harris returned to the United States, she became the first women in history to hold presidential powers after President Joe Biden was put under anesthesia for a medical procedure.
Users across social media were divided over their thoughts on the Vice President's purchases.
Many chefs came to her defense, including John DeLucie from New York.
“Buy as expensive a pot as you can afford because it really does make a difference," he said.
On Twitter, one user wrote: "If you have a problem with Vice President Kamala Harris buying a Le Creuset pot, feel free to flip out on me too.
"These are heirlooms that you pass on to your children. Newsflash, people who enjoy cooking tend to buy quality items. This is a non-story."
Attached to his tweet was a photograph of various cookware items, including many from Le Creuset.
Another account wrote: "While Americans are struggling to pay more than EVER for the holidays, Kamala Harris is out buying a $375 pot."
On November 19, 2021, Biden temporarily transferred presidential powers to Harris while he was under anesthesia for a routine colonoscopy, according to the White House.
For one hour and 25 minutes, Kamala Harris was the first woman in history to hold presidential power.
This isn't the first time Harris has broken a barrier, with her being the the first woman vice president as well as the first Black and South Asian vice president.
Jen Psaki, the White House Press Secretary, reported that Harris worked from her office in the West Wing while the president underwent his procedure.
In order to transfer the presidential powers to Harris, Biden sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy before he was put under anesthesia.
According to Forbes, Kamala Harris has an estimated net worth of around $7million.
Prior to her position as the vice president, Harris worked as a district attorney in California, later becoming the Attorney General.
In 2016, Harris was elected to the US Senate.
Harris is married to Douglas Emhoff, a lawyer.
