^^ Great info, planning to use it indoors only so no campfire for this one but if I were, I know I'd be going cast iron of course. Thanks again for all the detailed suggestions and advice, much appreciated!

I have 4 DOs, in various sizes & shapes. Two are LC, but the smallest and the large shallow one are 'no-name' brands. I have had no problems with any of them. Although I am usually a bit of a 'snob' when it comes to wanting the best quality equipment, I must admit that in an enameled, cast iron DO, I see no difference. Maybe I'm just not as sophisticated as I want to think I am!

Hope this helps...
I think you may be my brother/sister from another mother.

Silver, those windmills won't just tilt themselves, y'know.

Great feedback and thank you all, I decided to pull the trigger on the Le Creuset Signature series I found in the article I mentioned. Let's see how things work out!

Congrats! I think you will be pleased. Which pan/size did you get?

I appreciate your candor SS and I would agree. When I was young I certainly didn't have the extra bucks for top of line cookware so it was out of the question then. More power to the young people who have the money to spend on the best! I have the money for it now, but why, when a $40 pot will likely last me the rest of my life, and if not I'll just pop for another and be hundreds of dollars ahead.
