Gotta love Crappy Tire and their $1600 set of "Artiste" pots and pans. Is this some kind of joke?

It was $10 cheaper last year.

Enameled surface is harder and smoother. Lighter colored surface makes it easier to see fond development. You can wash with soap and don't need to be as careful about drying and oiling the surface since it doesn't rust. You can also cook acidic things for long periods of time without worrying about surface degradation (tomato-based soups and stews).

I have one, it's excellent build quality (haven't seen any chips or damage) and have enjoyed cooking with it.davidclegg wrote: ↑ Lodge is a good brand, but check out this video for the things that you should be looking for in a Dutch oven.
Some things they mentioned:
- at least 6 quart volume
- good weight for heat retention
- wide handles to make it easy to hold with oven mitts
- light coloured enameled interior since dark colours are more likely to cause scorching and are harder to see fond formation
- broad flat base with less taper towards walls gives broader effective surface for browning
That last point seems, to me, to be a strike against the Lodge Dutch oven. I recently bought the 7 quart Crock-Pot Dutch oven when it went on sale for around $70 (primarily used for baking bread) and I'm very happy with it.

You can buy Lodge's official Enameled Cast Iron and Stoneware Care Kit if you want to.setlist wrote: ↑ Since this thread has gathered some knowledgable folk here and I'm just getting started with my lodge - what is everyone's take on cleaning it? I've been using non-abrasive tools to clean it and keeping it out of the dishwasher - but if either of these two things is too conservative I'd love the greater conveniences of being rougher with it.

Yes, and Lodge has a 7.5 quart. Just beware the huge weight difference to an IP pot.poorwingman wrote: ↑ What size is the "right" size to get?
I have a 6qt instant pot that I use as a slow cooker contrary to many IP threads and it's been "fine". But I do find that it does not fit enough food for like a pot roast and veggies. Should I upsize to an 8qt if I'm looking for a dutch oven?

My go-to is this handy brush and I also hand wash. If there're stubborn stains, I'd coat them with equal parts baking soda and water, leave for a few hours then rinse. Worked every time.setlist wrote: ↑ Since this thread has gathered some knowledgable folk here and I'm just getting started with my lodge - what is everyone's take on cleaning it?
