Fontignac: The enameled cast iron debate continues

eugenegirl | Oct 15, 2011 10:51 AM

I've read countless reviews and debates about Le Creuset v. Staub. v. Lodge v. Tramontina and I still haven't come to any conclusions. I'd like to replace a Batili that has chipped, rusted and generally not fared well in the whopping 5 times I've used it.

Has anyone had experience with Fontignac? I've found little discussion of it, and few reviews on the Bed Bath and Beyond website. I do know it's made by Staub, seems affordable and has a shape I like better than the curved sides of Lodge.

Any help? Or anyone with a less expensive brand like Tramontina or Lodge who can attest to its condition after further usage?

Thank you!!
