    $111? Really? What kind of goober spends this much for a $5 pot?

    Mostly non goobers that only want to buy something once. I have the 5 1/2 quart round. Heats up fast and stays hot on lowest flame. They are pricey, but really depends on how you like to cook.

    Costco sells a beautiful 6 qt round pot under its store brand that is made by Le Creuset for $60. And yeah, these pots are worth every penny and will last a lifetime. If you're serious about cooking you should get one.

    It's true you can opt for a knock-off at Walmart for 20% of the price (thanks #4 I didn't know the Costco ones are from Le Creuset!) but if you're the kind of person who wakes up and says, "Hmm, I wonder what I can make for dinner" then Le Creuset is the kind of cookware (I mean their enameled pots) where you save up for about a year, wait patiently for a deal (or luck out at a TJ Max or Le Creuset outlet) and you get a mid-sized pot.

    The problem in my case (first was a 4.5 quart) is that it's worse than crack. We now have 3 (including a Cuisinart oval knockoff) and come the first hint of fall, they are constantly on the stove or oven. I am eagerly waiting for the funds and opportunity to buy a 7.5qt round oven.

    Even with a cheap copy, do this in one that fits a whole chicken: wash the chicken, splash some salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice on it, and put it in the oven. Put the lid on the pot, and cook it at 350 for an hour. No need to look, no need to turn it, nothing. Just cook. Then, take the lid off, and if you're feeling a little like Julia Child, take a long swig from a vodka bottle, then get a pastry brush (or baster) and baste it with the juices. Put it back in, turn the oven up to 425, take the lid off, and let it brown (about 15-20) minutes. It will so kick the ass of any store-bought rotisserie chicken (OK not really because they jack up the store ones with injected "flavor") that you'll say, "Wow, good investment." And that's the point: treat the pot with respect and it'll serve you for 30 years.

    MrHat, it's always a pleasure to see you, even when tight shirts are not involved. But really, did you take the time to read the previous posts? I believe someone already milked the whole Marshall's/TJMaxx overstock angle!

    I was confirming and agreeing. Not trying to be condescending or insulting. It is always a treat to read your positive contributions. Keep up the good work.

    Yikes! And now you've taken my teasing seriously. Sad My bad, I'm sorry for not adding a smiley or two so you'd know it was faux outrage!

    Ben,

    I didn't know you could use this on the hotplate you have in your parents basement.

    I'm tempted to spin that into a three-some joke...but it's way too early on a Saturday morning for that! Maybe when the muscle-shirt ad pops up again...

    This is an incredible deal. Lifetime warranty on these. My wife dropped the lid of ours on the floor and Le Creuset replaced the whole thing free of charge.
