Brand & Type: Dutch Oven from Le Creuset 5 1/2 Quart

Le Creuset 5-1/2-Quart Round French Oven

Price range: High, around $200

Rating: 9

Description: 5 1/2 Quart Round Dutch Oven. Enamel Covered Cast Iron, with lid.

Pros: Beautiful Dutch Oven, holds heat extremely well and has a great finish.

Cons: Price. Weight.

Conclusion: Le Creuset has a great, well made line of products. Your best bet it to go by their outlet stores and pick up a "second". Seconds are much cheaper and of the same quality. If price is a concern then you can also pick up a 5 quart cast iron dutch oven for about $30. You really do not miss anything, except the enamel coating. Although seasoning cast iron is easy. Everyone should have a few pieces of cast iron, Le Creuset or otherwise.
