I have always wanted one of these but didn't want to spend the $180+ that other brands cost. This is a great buy. I was surprised at how heavy it is but I love it. I leave it on top of my stove so it is easily accessible. I use it all the time.
I LOVE this dutch oven. I have been looking for one for about 6 months. THis is such a quality item and it was so much less than any store. The 2.95 shipping is so reasonable. I am very happy with Overstock.com. I just baught 2 more items. I'll let you know how I like them.
We have been looking for an enamel coated dutch oven for several months. However, we weren't prepared to pay $150 or more for one. Could not believe the value on the one we purchased from Overstock. I have been very pleased with my purchases on Overstock and have been recommending the site to friends and co-workers.
I needed a pot that would go from the stove top to the oven. This one not only does that, but it's pretty and can go right to the table. It cleans up easily. When I'm planning a meal I always consider using my dutch oven first. Its versatility makes it my favorite cooking receptical now. The price is very reasonable too.
Lodge used to make all its cast iron in US, now some enameled products are made in China. Besides concerns about lead in Chinese products, quality of Chinese made items is way below American made products. Raw cast iron Lodge items are still made in the US, why not enameled? Anyway, I got this as a present, and judging by comments on another giant shopping site, its a mixed bag of tricks - some people got cracks and chipped enamel within months of using it, if not weeks....So buyer beware!
