I will give you some hints, but you have to decide, which is which!

LE CREUSET. LE CREUSET WAS AND IS MADE IN FRANCE. IT IS AVAILABLE IN MOST HOUSEWARES STORES AND ON E-BAY, BUT IT IS PRICEY! LE CREUSET COMES IN GREAT COLORS AND A WIDE RANGE OF POT STYLES. THIS IS WHAT YOU SEE DAILY ON MOST FOOD NETWORK COOKING SHOWS.

COUSANCES. COUSANCES COOKWARE WAS MADE BY ANOTHER FRENCH COMPANY FOR MANY YEARS. IT IS VERY SIMILAR TO LE CREUSET. IT WAS PURCHASED BY LE CREUSET IN THE 1960'S WHO STILL PRODUCE COOKWARE UNDER THIS NAME. TO FIND THE PRE-LE CREUSET COUSANCES COOKWARE, CHECK OUT THE INTERNET, E-BAY, AND OTHER SECONDARY MARKETS.


COPCO. COPCO IS DANISH, MODERN IN DESIGN AND IN BRILLIANT COLORS. IT IS NO LONGER BEING MANUFACTURED. MADE OF THE HEAVIEST CAST IRON OF ALL THE BRANDS, AND BOASTING WONDERFUL BARE IRON POT BASES FOR MAXIMUM CONDUCTIVITY; I THINK COPCO MADE THE BEST ENAMELED CAST IRON COOKWARE AND BAKEWARE EVER MADE. YOU CAN FIND IT AT GARAGE SALES, THRIFT SHOPS, AN ON E-BAY.

DESCOWARE. DESCOWARE WAS MADE IN BELGIUM, AND HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED [ALSO BOUGHT OUT BY LE CREUSET SINCE IT WAS SO VERY SIMILAR TO LE CREUSET] IN THE 1950'S. DESCOWARE IS FAIRLY EASY TO FIND ON E-BAY AND OTHER SECONDARY MARKETS.

You guys are just so good, I got depressed! I underestimated the abilities of members here.

As the first DC member who got all the correct answers, I award buckytom the trophy!
