I have several pieces of LC which I love. My big enameled cast iron is an off-brand oval however. My mom picked it up at Tuesday Morning for me last year...I think the brand name is Well Equipped Kitchen.
I use it a lot as i cook for the family on Sundays...I think it's about 8 qts. Unfortunately it's started to chip quite a bit. So far all the chips are on the outside but I probably should think about replacing it before the inside starts chipping.
Want something in the 8-9 qt range. Round or oval fine. Is LC my only option in this size? I'd love an excuse to add another LC piece but dont' want to spend a lot of money right now...and would like to find something sooner than later.
