I was looking at the 5 quart Lodge dutch oven and noticed that the 3 quart chicken fryer is about the same price (2-3 dollars more, actually).
It seems to me that there isn't anything the fryer can do that the dutch can't do just as well or better. Am I missing something? They seem to be pretty much identical from what I can tell, except the fryer has a long handle. They both have the same type lid with the drip spikes.

Thanks, and I hope everyone's having a great holiday. :)
