This is just my personal opinion, but unless you plan on hanging your Dutch Oven by the bail over a campfire, I'd go with the 2-sided end loop handles. Much easier to move without spillage & handle while cleaning.

Again - just my opinion.

I agree with you Breezy, much easier to handle!

You might look at Lodge's enameled cast iron. Their line called Lodge Color is more reasonably priced than most enameled cast iron. I have one of the skillets and a Dutch oven, and they are very nice, despite the fact that they were...gasp!...made in China.

Yes, Lodge does have that line--$60 for a 5qt oven--and reports on it from another source is very favorable. And again, Innova and Daniel Bolud have nice ovens in the $50-75 range. The quote you (Dutchess) gave above was referencing the Cajun line I originally started this thread about--their enamel cast iron frying pans are very inexpensive as opposed to Le Creuset's and I might consider one at the low price--but not at the high price.
