Our local Sur La Table ran a manager's email special on Staub 4.25qt Oval dutch ovens for $100. That's $150 off list in case your keeping score. I managed to get a cobalt blue early yesterday morning.
Had to fight through a crowd of "ladies" who were trying to get to them the minute the store opened. I use the term lady loosely because lady like behavior was certainly out the window. What with all the pushing, grabbing, shoving, foot stomping, biting, well-I-nevers, clawing, general chaos, and language that would make a sailor blush all available pieces were snatched up within 15 minutes of unlocking the door. The only thing that saved me was holding the box above my head where they couldn't reach it and running for the cash register. I think Mrs 40 C was calling 911.
Came with a plain round handle too. I really like the rooster one though. Going to try it out later today...roast turkey breast...yum
