I have tons of Le Creuset, and their relatives Copco, Cousances, and Descoware -- all of which I have bought second hand over the years from thrift shops, garage sales, and from Ebay.

I love, love, love every piece.

But I also love my old cast iron skillets and chicken fryer!

I have a Calphalon enameled cast iron dutch oven that works great. There are more brands than just LeCreuset that make them.

I picked up a 4.5 quart round LC dutch oven with a bad scratch where the enamel was off in a three inch mark, on the top of the lid. It is cobalt blue. The pot is perfect, and I could get a replacement lid. I got it at a thrift shop, and it works fabulously. OH, yeah it cost $3.50. Talk about lucky!!!!!!

I also have a lot of Descoware, that LC now owns. I need a few lids.

I have an extra LC lid in Brown. It is an 8 inch round, if anyone needs one, I would sell it. It is in pretty decent condition.

To go off on a tangent, for roughly the same money I'd rather get Mauviel copper than Le Creuset cast iron.
