[The Bay] Le Creuset 4.1 L Cast Iron Traditional Pot (Red or Blue) $160 (Regular $400)

A pretty good deal! The Bay is selling it in red and blue.

Red:

Blue:

In my experience, these typically sell out quite quickly. Grab one soon if you want it! The website says free shipping over $99 as well, but I seem to be having trouble getting that to apply, possibly because of the weight.

Kinda cool to have different colours in the kitchen but I always see the floor model's paint chipped to death, sometimes even deeper. For that reason, I'm out.

It's 4.1L, so that would depend on you, wouldn't it?

4.1L is pretty small for four people. That will be base to rim, and nobody cooks like that. I'd say you probably want something larger for a one-pot meal for four, unless you have small appetites and you're cooking something pretty dense.

With due respect, $400 for a cast iron pot is a ridiculous example of being "Brandwashed".

And even at 60% discount, $160 is still wayyyyy too much for a cast iron pot that has a damage-prone enamel finish.

Lodge's line of Dutch Ovens are superior and have been rated a Best Buy from cooks Illlustrated (America's Test Kitchen" magazine for years.

Take your pic from all of them https://www.lodgemfg.com/prodcat/dutch-ovens.asp

For less than half the "sale" price of that overpriced French shippable item, you can get a "Double Dutch" oven with a lid that doubles as a cast iron skillet https://www.lodgemfg.com/dutch-ovens/5- ... h-oven.asp

If you really want the colour, Lodge has enamelled Dutch ovens for under $100 full retail price.

Yep, totally good choices too! You can get roughly the same size blue or red enameled Dutch ovens from Sears.ca for what appears to be about $120 after tax, including shipping. I have no experience with Lodge so I can't comment on whether or not there's any differences, but I have to imagine that most cast iron is pretty consistent amongst manufacturers.

Just got one at The bay at Markville mall 30 min ago. There were around 15 Red and 10 Blue when I left, they should have some more on the other side of the shelf maybe 5-10.

I have read that people believe that cast iron sourced from china may be questionable (not pure?). But lodge is USA, so that's not relevant in this case. It may be a case against other brands though. I have personal experience in this quality difference though.

Guessing you've never used Le Creuset products before.

Move along.

Lodge is one of my favorite companies, and I have many products from them. Dudtch ovens included. I think I still prefer cooking with my Creuset pots for some things.

When amortized over the life of either of these pots, the price difference isn't that big.

I see that the Lodge is cheaper, but can't find anywhere that sells it for less than $130+tax shipped. Where are you finding it at $100 or less? For that price, it's not too far off from the Le Creuset on sale here...

What? Lodge has just as long of a useful life as Le Creuset.

Yes. But if you prefer one over the other for any reason, the price difference is negligible when you consider it will probably be used thousands or tens of thousands of times.

Between my brother and me, we have close to 30 pieces of Le Creuset's. Most were at least 20 years old and definitely pre "$400" piece of trendy iron days! I even found one left on a garbage heap! I definitely would not pay $400 or even $200 for a full enamelled one(they used to be at most half enamelled, with the heating surface exposed)! The most I paid was $150 for my creuset wok which is out out of necessity as I needed a flat bottom one for an electric stove. My other woks are carbon. I recently bought my first lodge frying pan. Yes, the surface is more rough and probably requires more seasoning to get it started but at $30, it's a fabulous piece of cooking tool!
