Hello, I have been looking for the smaller version of le Creuset's deep covered skillet. I have seen a couple with on ebay with black interiors that seem like they have worn to a grey color in spots and are no longer black. They look to me as if they were telfon which had worn away. My skillet bought in 2007 is completely black in the interior and not worn through. I would prefer a new deep covered skillet but the one that they offer currently, the #27 is too big. I need a number #23 for a small amount of deep frying. I would go with a Lodge for the purpose of just frying but Lodge's is about the same size as le Creuset's #27 and would use too much oil. I want the handle and also and the curved sides of a "chicken fryer" and they don't make a deep enough skillet in the 9 inch size otherwise. I see that Williams Sonoma has a slightly deeper skillet but only in their larger sizes. How often does le Creuset sell this style piece sometimes known as a "mijotin"? Is it available elsewhere, France perhaps?
