I have my eye on a Le Creuset 9qt oval. I want it for making pot roasts. I want the oval so that the meat sits on the bottom better during browning. I have the round Lodge which I think is 5qt. My daughter has the Le Creuset. I got the Lodge from her when she got the Le Creuset. She loves the Le Creuset over the Lodge. I’ll be waiting for a sale but even with that, I think it’s just one of those things that if you can afford it, you will be happy to have it. I’m guessing it won’t make any difference in how the food tastes though.

I have to say I own both Lodge DO and LeCruset DO. I honestly have never seen any performance difference between them. Only that the LC is easier to clean and maintain because of the porcelain enamel over bare cast iron.

I got mine (a nice yellow one) for a good price at Williams & Sonoma in the week after Christmas sale. They discount 40% or more the slow sellers. Maybe you will see some of you are willing to wait a couple of months.

I don’t have a matched set but they are all lovely pieces. One is yellow, one is forest green, two blue, one baby blue, and white.

Yeah, I’d like a blue one, but color is not a concern if the price is right.

I just saw this article and thought about you guys and this thread. It is 8 pm est on 10/20/2020 and it says on amazon the price ends in 7 hours.

Thanks for looking out for me (us). Unfortunately, that’s a 3.5qt and I’m looking for a big one (9qt). It is a good price though. In my reading, it seems that these things have a history of going on sale after Christmas (Like Bill said above). I also have an outlet store not too far that I may call or check out to see what they have to offer.

Still 5-1/2 Hours left if anyone is interested. Also, use the link through this web site when you go to Amazon so that a Chris gets credit!
