Hmmmmm.... I was just there and she suggested that they don't sell them. But maybe that's just the one I went to.

Mission Accomplished! I called a store near to me. They had spare knobs in supply for $8 + tax. Picked it up earlier today.

This particular store was designated as Signature, not Outlet. Perhaps that has something to do with whether or not they carry the knobs.

Bed, Bath, and Beyond also has the knobs on their website. I haven't seen them in any of the stores near me though.

I bake that recipe in my Descoware DO and the lid actually is all cast iron including the handle. The problem I found is that that particular lid for some reason changes colour and just generally made me uncomfortable to cook with. My solution was to use on of my stainless steel lids for the oven. It fits the DO perfectly and the handle is SS. So if you have another lid from another pot that you think might fit, it might be less trouble than removing the plastic handle from the lid of your DO.

hello, this is my first post and was curious as to how the brass worked out. was thinking about going out and buying brass knobs for kitchen cabinets to see how that works. i have a Le Creuset that i got second-hand from a thrift store for only $6! it has the phenolic knob which i believe are also rated for 350-400F. and has anybody who has Creuset covered their knob with foil? is that the same knob as the Lodge's?

thank you
