Cooks Illus. April 2010 Issue Tests Staub dutch oven Against Le Creuset

Since the Staub v. LeCresuet debate has no signs of ending, i thought i'd throw this stick onto the fire. The April 2010 issue tests the Staub against the lecreuset, and here is a summary:

1. CI compared 7 1/4 qt lecresuet to the Staub 8 qt

2. Both browned meat beautfully and created flavorful fond.

3. BUT...CI said the black interior made it diffucult to see if fond was developing or burning AND the pot and lid weighed 6 pounds more than the lecreuset.

CI concluded that Staub comes in 2nd place to lecreuset.
