On a whim I stopped into Tuesday Morning a little while ago and found a Le Creuset 9-qt. Round French Oven (red) for $169. I decided to buy it and then figure out if I'd gotten a good buy. Instinct told me not to pass it up, especially since it was the only one on the shelf and it appeared to be in perfect condition. From what I'm seeing on various web sites, it looks like I made a good purchase.
