    do you have a favorite dutch oven? i would love a le creuset but they're like $300 and i don't know that i make enough soups and stews to merit that. instead i'm looking at a $60 lodge enamel coated dutch oven. much less expensive with good reviews. problem is that it's made in china and i don't trust those little yellow bastards not to poison me with some toxic ingredient in their enamel.

    omg i'm sitting here drinking coffee, eating a scone, and watching the pioneer woman (her recipes suck...they're like small town church pot-luck recipes...her salad dressing was mayo, sour cream, and sugar) and my cat came and started licking my scone. he's about to get the foot again.

    pay the extra dough....it's worth it.

    I tried a "Martha Stewart" take-off of the LeCruset and it's crap.
    I only use that one to boil water for pasta now.

    hmm...man, i suppose i should. but $300 (well...$280) seems like a lot for a soup pot.

    You're not going to believe this, dinkus, but I got some pieces of a LeCrueset knockoff at Aldi. :p Dirt cheap, and they've held up well. (Only the baking dishes, though. I don't have the dutch oven or anything that use use on the stovetop.)
