I have some of the ceramic ramekins and a ceramic casserole and a tea kettle. None of the CI.

I have the original flame and yellow Le Creuset.

But mostly I have flame, yellow, and red Copco, Descoware, and Cousances.

How do you like the Copco compared to the others?

Copco is my favorite! It is so thick and I love the bare CI bases!

I bought a 9 1/2 Qt Oval Dutch Oven at the Outlet this weekend for $171.

I went back to the Outlet store this past weekend to exchange the teapot that had an imperfection. I had been debating all week about an Oval Dutch Oven I saw on their 40% off table last week. Of course, I took the plunge and bought it! In the end it was just too good a price to pass up. It is a 9 1/2 Qt. Oval Dutch Oven in the color Citron. I like the color, compared it side by side to the Dijon color and this pot looked better in the Citron, I think. In any case, it was not worth another $30 to get the Dijon which was 30% off. Also the Citron pot I bought has no imperfections that I can detect. The two pots they had left in Dijon did not look as perfect. I think the sole reason for the discount is that the color is being discontinued, not because of a defect. It was the only piece left in that color on the counter.

Me too, but I'm biased. They're Danish I think they are the prettiest ones.

I like the bare CI bases, but do you think they actually heat more uniformly? Or do anything else, other than rust?

I only have one small frying pan that is enamelled cast iron, that isn't Copco - it's Belgian, so I can't really compare.

I think Copco does heat more evenly!

Anybody have any ideas what would be good to cook in my new 9 12 Qt Oval Dutch Oven. I bought that size because my 7 1/4 Qt Round is what I use when I make soup but it always boils over because it is just slightly smaller than I need when cooking a whole chicken and vegetables in the soup. Other than that I am trying to think of other things I can use it for.

That will be a lot of chili! I would have to have a SuperBowl party with that much chili.

I was thinking like a big pot roast or pork roast since it is an Oval shaped pot.
