Staub and Deyemere Quality Slipped?

recklessgardener | Mar 10, 202103:13 PM     21

Just received the Staub BOUILLABAISSE POT and deyemere Atlantis Stock Pot from Zwilling website, and they suppose to be first choice, not second or imperfection item, but the quality seems not very good.

The Staub BOUILLABAISSE POT has many small dimples and uneven enamel on the lid, since it is a mirror finish, those unevenness are very obvious. The dusts like white spots on in the photo are not dusts, they are the uneven finish surface. I have a whole set of Le Creuset ECI as wedding gift from my dear mother-in-law, and after reading so much about Staub's more durable finish and better performance, I ordered a second choice Staub cocotte, the finish are so rough, so I returned it, thinking buying second choice was a wrong decision, then I order the BOUILLABAISSE POT, but I have to say Staub's overall finish is not as good/smooth as my LC.

The deyemere Atlantis Stock Pot feels thin and cheap(compare to fissler stockpot, even the SILGA TEKNIKA from TJ Maxx feel more substantial), and more importantly, there are some metal loss(those black areas in the photo, they are not dirt, cannot be wiped off) at where the thick base meets the wall. I am seriously disappointed. Isn't Atlantis supposed to be demeyere's more superior line?

I read so many good things about both Staub and demeyere, and I am sure they produced many many high quality items, but have their quality slipped in recent years or just pure bad luck for my online shopping?
