I have a Cuisinart dutch oven and LOVE it! I use it so much more than I ever thought I would. And it was a fraction of the price of a le Creuset.

Bought my cast iron Dutch oven for $30 from a neighbor who was moving to Thailand. I love it! Almost impossible to burn anything!

My Lodge irritated me with all the extra care it required.

Love love love my LeCrueset.

Everyone has a Dutch Oven. They are often used by older brothers.

I have a Lodge, but only use it for camping. I have been in talks with my mom for a few months about "borrowing" on of her Le Creuset dutch ovens, but I think she is on to me.

I'm a huge fan of Le Creuset as well and have several pieces of enameled cast iron.. To me they are absolutely worth the price and will last forever. I drool over them every time I step into Williams Sonoma, although I tend to buy them from Amazon. The colors are amazing. My favorite piece is a huge dutch oven in "Flame". Its sits in it's place of honor on my stove (Yes I'm a Le Creuset freak!)

I also like Lodge and own several pieces, cast iron & enameled cast iron. My favorite is one shaped like a big red apple

OP, if you absolutely don't want to spring for the Le Creuset, Lodge has a great line and is a lot cheaper, but still good quality.

Let us know what you end up with!

I have a Lodge enameled dutch oven. It works extremely well, and there's no extra care for it like a non-enameled cast iron pot has. The Lodge enameled dutch oven is very similar to the Le Creuset one, but it is much, much cheaper. You can buy them at Target (where I got mine) for around $60.00. That's in comparison to Le Creuset, which will likely be over $200.00.

I've given a few as "presents" in my time.

I have a few Le Creusets, they are my wifes favs.

My favorites are my Wagner Wares and Griswolds from the early 20th century. At home in the field or on the stove.
