I'm not sure which is faster. They both are pretty quick to rust. Of course, both would be seasoned and that would inhibit rusting.

I've never used a CI wok. Let us know how it goes. I tend to move the wok a lot during stir frying. I'd be concerned the CI wok would be too heavy.

The Lodge cast iron wok IS heavy alright!

But it came already seasoned (oiled & baked). Lodges suggests keeping it oiled between uses to keep rust at bay.

Mario Batali now has a line of enamel cast iron for about half the price of LC. Look on Amazon. A large Dutch oven is about $100.

Emeril Lagasse also has cast iron cookware out with his name on it. Not enameled yet though.

Gretchen,

I've been looking at that Batali enamel cast iron one, do you know the size of it in inches at the bottom, and how high it is WITHOUT the lid. I called the manufacturer but they can't tell me.

gary - the Mario pot has a 13-inch external diameter ... and since it is 6-qts the height should be somewhere between 4.25 - 4.5 inches high.

QVC is another place that you might look for Staub - although they have a very limited selection. They have a 6-qt oval for $65 and a 5-qt round for $50.

Your investing for life!

I have spent months investing in pieces if le creuset when i can afford it. I have a store outlet about an hour from me a le creuset outlet and every month they have specials.Check to see near where you live if there is one.
The one i goto in in TANGER outlet centers. You can save as much as 30%on a piece which is alot on a 200.00 pot.
The investment is well worth it you will have these pots forever.My daughter says to me how one day they will all be hers.we laugh but she is right they will.
Another place for le creuset is online at (cultery and more.com)They charge no shipping and no tax.
Good Luck

Mario Batali now has a line of enamel cast iron ovens that is easily as good as LC and less than half the price.

Other than lasting forever...

There isn't a thing in the world wrong with regular old cast iron if you ask me.
They take a little more attention but they aslo deliver the goods.[/FONT][/QUOTE]
They are ugly and heavy. Could be the best cookware ever.
