This morning I was surprised to see (in my local snooty supermarket, no less), this 28cm ECI Dutch Oven with built-in dial thermometer. Supposedly made 100% from recycled rail materials in Holland.
There is a "bump-in" inside to house the thermometer, the base is allegedly 6mm thick, and the cover has the ubiquitous self-basting nibs.
It is unclear from the instructions whether the entire pan can be immersed without flooding the thermometer.
$242 at W-S, $399 at my grocery store...
Anyone have one?
