Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Ovens

Ali | Oct 30, 200709:40 PM     2

With all the talks of Le Cruset, Chefmate and whatnot, I thought I'd throw another name into the ring to see if anyone has opinions.

I'm considering getting one of the Lodge enameled concoctions on Amazon. With a 6 qt being around $50 and with Lodge having such a good name when it comes to cast iron, I'm thinking that I'm getting a ridiculous deal or that I may be better off burning a $50 bill. (I'm guessing the whole enamel process being done in China is what is driving down the price since the 5 qt French import is double the price.) Does anyone have any experience with these things? Are they a good deal for the price? I'm not looking for the quality to match anything like a Le Cruset, but I don't want to think I'm better off finding another pot of equal price.

By the way, I'm sort of considering the 3 qt instead of the 6 qt due to me only ever cooking for myself, but I'm ambivalent. Any suggestions?
