On a recent trip "Down yonder" I stopped in at the Lodge Factory Outlet Store in Sevierville, Tn.
I picked up a 6qt. enamel on cast iron dutch oven from the seconds (which meant it had a dimple in the enamel on the top of the lid) pile for $40. (Regular $87.95)
Later on our trip I was in Williams Sonoma and saw basically the same pot for $220.95 (MSRP $295).
Is there really a $200+ difference?? All you LC owners/swear by it people convince me that it's a good idea to spend the extra cash.
BTW, I used it for the first time last night to make gumbo and it was fantasic.
