I was in a larger Seattle-area resto supply place today, and was excited to see a HUGELY-thick Lincoln Wearever aluminum DO in what appeared to be a 4-5Q size for $58, sans cover. This is a full 1/4" thick, with welded handles.
The sales rep said Lincoln was discontinuing the model and they were at closeout prices.

For $58, this will run circles around anything LC or Staub has ever made.
