Candocook, I need to put the pot and cover in the oven to heat. Then I need to remove it from the oven. A hot heavy pot to place in and out of the oven. I prefer the lighter weight pot.

I don't think I would need one in the kitchen, but it's nice to learn about them.
Actually it is used on both the stove top and also in the oven.

just a warning from Robo the pot and pan guy...an enamelled cast iron dutch oven is a glorious thing...get 5qt or better. Be careful of products made in China. Many many consumer warnings on Yahoo etc about Color cast and the MarioBatali pots ... the enamel chips easily and is very uneven inside with little pits that can grow. It is worth spending more money for Creuset, Lodge, Lamont, etc made in America or Europe with better warenties. Yes good enamelling is expensive.

I'm very happy with my two alluminum dutch ovens. Yes, some people say you can't use for tomatoes, but everything else works just fine. You can get one for around $10 $20 bucks. If you are interested I can give you alink to the place I got them, when I get to work on Monday, I do not have it at home.

I believe there is a Danish company that makes enameled aluminium dutch ovens.

I got a practically new 5 quart Le Creuset off of ebay last month for $80 - it looks like it has never been used. I refused to pay a high price for one for years, a Le Creuset dutch oven was on my xmas list since 1985 with no takers, I finall decided to treat myself.

Ebay is a good place to pick up a nice dutch oven for alot less than the price of a new one.

I just pull my oven rack out, take off the top and plump the bread in.
But yes, I have discovered you can use just about ANY container for that bread. I have even used a cookie sheet for the bottom and an inverted (albeit very deep) springform pan for the top!!
A number of people on another board have bought inexpensive cast iron "dutch" ovens just for making this bread--6qt. for $25 on Amazon.

The $229 for the LC pot IS for the HUGE pot that probably lists for $350--maybe 9+ sts. It is a fairly good price for that pot but I am not tempted--'way too heavy and big for any need I have.
Be sure you know the shipping costs when ordering from EBay.
