Bought a 7.5 qt LC at the Tuesday Morning sale ($149.00) - love it and cooked using it for 5 nights strait. When washing up I noticed a small black dot in the middle of the pot - additional inspection turned up 7 more small dots around the pot. - called LC customer service and was told that the Grey colored pots were made specifically for the Tuesday Morning sale only - They are replacing the unit(I chose a Red Color)However - I had to pay $23.00 in UPS charges to get the pot back to them. - Now the price is up to $172.00
-not such a great deal, and I have to wait 3 or 4 weeks to get back the Pot (will miss t'giving for sure)- I'm going to check out Staub in the future(ps-Tuesday Morning would have given back the purchase prie,I probably should hace taken the money and immediately gone out to buy a Pot at Penny's or somesuch place!)--if you have a grey pot,chech it out VERY carefully!!
