Check for LeCrueset outlet stores in your area. You can get good deals for cosmetic seconds.

I recommend a 7-qt size. It's jut right for a pot roast or a whole chicken or a pot of chili.

I paid $9 for shipping on my Le Creuset from ebay. The seller shipped it parcel post. Sellers should specify their shipping rates, if not, email them and ask them what it it would cost before you bid.

I have seen Le Creuset dutch ovens at the Williams Sonoma Outlet near my home, but the prices were not cheap enough for me. Ditto with the Le Creuset outlet I stopped at in Illinois last year.

I have had great luck with the Le Creuset outlet near me. I go right to the seconds shelves, and paw through until I find a piece that looks perfect. Then I take it over to the first quality pans to compare it millimeter by millimeter and if I can't find the flaw (which is usually the case) I buy it. Those seconds are already 40% off retail. Throughout the year they have specials for additional 20% and 30% off if you're on their preferred customer list, which brings the prices down even more. The only problem is the colors are limited.

At the LeCrueset Outlet Store today, I saw a seconds 7.25 Quart round oven for $186.

Williams-Sonoma wanted $450 for the same item first quality.

Fuh fuh four-hundred fifty?!? That is laughable. I found a site online that sells the 7.25qt for $165 with free shipping; 4 or 5 color choices. Something was wrong with their checkout though, might have to call 'em. If anyone is interested PM me for a link.

Nothing fancy, but I guarantee you that my stew from on of these pots is just as good or better than one from somebody's Le Cruset, not that I am against them. Just can't justify spending that kind of money, unless it's a knife.

Why pay that much for an enamled cast iron dutch oven when you can pick up plain cast iron dutch oven at Bass Pro for under $50, with out legs,that will do the same job and is naturely nonstick?

I find that bare cast iron requires more work. And while it's quite serviceable, it's ugly. I like pretty things. So I pay for enameled but never full price!
