For those familiar with Fontignac: Standard vs Fleur line

71ailmar | Jan 6, 201401:49 PM

So I know there have been more than enough discussions regarding dutch ovens: enameled/bare, LC, Staub, made in China, not made in China, etc. and I have tried reading through most of them and they've been helpful to get me this far....

I definitely would like a round, 6-7qt, enameled (preferably light colored interior vs black and not "non stick") dutch oven. For a variety of reasons I prefer to stay away from China made on this particular purchase but doesn't have to be USA made either.
This leaves me with LeCruset, Staub, Chasseur, and Fontignac...

I can get a 6.5qt round Fontignac (not Fleur line) at BB&B for $112 and that beats the prices on all the other brands including the Fleur line of Fontignac. I've looked at HomeGoods, TJ, Marshall's, etc and they either haven't had the right sizes or what they do have has been still much more than the $112 price on the Fontignac.
Is there any reason I should take warning with the Fontignac at BB&B? I really want to stay under $130 for what I'm looking for.

Thank you!
