That isn't Chantal! Chantal is enamel coated carbon steel, not cast iron.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I've seen the stuff DrThunder88 is referring to in some Home Goods stores. It is enameled cast iron. BTW, I've seen also Chantal and LeCreuset enameled steel stuff... mostly their big tall pans.

Cool Alternatives & Price Cuts & Outlet Stores

We've been fortunate enough to have been given 2 Le Creuset pieces as gifts. We bought our 7-1/2 qt dutch oven on sale at a Great Indoors which was shutting its doors. Finally, we added a large stock pot available at Tuesday Morning - and it comes with full warranty, not a factory second like many/most items at Ross/Marshalls/TJMaxx.

And now, coming to our area at the end of March, none other than a Le Creuset outlet store. I can't wait for that.

Also, competition for Le Creuset has been "heating" up, with competitors such as Calphalon and a few others stepping into the game. I would look for the prices of this cookware to come down in the near future.

Senior cookware is made in CHINA

I was just at IKEA yesterday and the Senior cookware that I found is blue and it is marked Made in China very clearly on the bottom. I also don't think the interior is enamel - if it is, it's a very rough enamel - not what I wanted at all.

IKEA sells enameled cast iron cookware, it is a line called SENIOR. This cookware is made in France (light green with black interior), prices are about 1/3 or less of similar LeC pieces.
