Two posts within a few days all about a dutch oven, nice f-ing life I got going on, eh? Here's the Le Creuset product:
This one sells for $175.99 at AMAZON.COM, which I can assure you is discounted.
Here's the LODGE product, which I decided to order for $53.99:
Now I have been wrong before, maybe even more times than I've been right. However, LODGE is not a fly by night company in the cookware department and in fact, kitchen experts such as Alton Brown even have LODGE on their preferred list for cast-iron cookware products. I can't bring myself to spend more than 3x more on the Le Creuset (nor can I afford to). By the way, the LODGE actually has a 6 qt. capacity, 1/2 qt. more than the Le Creuset.
I need to wait until the 15th for the expected ship date and a couple days beyond that to receive the product (assuming it ships on time). I already know the first recipe that I'll be cooking in it - I'll post the recipe and the initial review of the product after the fact (cause I got that kind of time to post a third time about a piece of cookware).
