As good or better than the high priced one...THE one to buy
Reviewed in the United States on December 18, 2018
Looking at purchasing a large cast iron Dutch oven made my eyes water at the outlandish prices demanded for the major brands. While in the big city, I had the chance to see several of them all in the same place, and I'm here to tell you, there isn't a whole lot of difference to my trained, pro chef eye. So...when I saw a the Lodge at a much more reasonable price, I thought, there must be something wrong with it. Wrong. I've used it several times now, and find it works, cooks, cleans, looks just fine. Great, in fact. Take it from a life long pro chef, you can't do any better than this one for function, cleaning, and great tasting food. Every detail is first rate. No one will ever know you saved a few bucks.
And, buy the way, these will make great Christmas gifts. I wish someone had given me one years ago. I've pined for one all my professional life.
