Doufeu vs Dutch Oven?

Does anyone have one? Worth the price? Does it cook that much better than a Dutch Oven?


Aside from the recessed lid, my dutch oven has a self basting lid and makes delicious noms.

SO its just a dutch oven with a lid that can hold ice to create condensation inside to keep food moist?

I'll stick with my dutch oven, thanks.

$400 for one overpriced pot or $400 for the 15+/- pots, skillets, wok, muffin and loaf pans I've used for the last 20 years? That's a tough decision.

You have to leave the lid partially lifted on a French oven, because they crack under pressure.

Word. My dutch oven has a "coal ring" on top. I'm pretty sure I could put ice on there without opening up some kind of black hole that would destroy humanity.

I agree in this case, Wife got me a Target "knock off" for $50 for my birthday and I think the name Le Creuset was $120-150. As mush as I will use this it will last a lifetime. hell it would if I used it weekly I bet.

I don't know the difference ,but I use Fonitignac.Half the price same warranty,been around for along time.
Fontignac - Fontignac

If you need the Le Creuset,you can join the mailer for their outlet and save some cash.

Not all dutch ovens have the recessed lid, usually the ones that do also have feet for use in a campfire. There are cheaper knockoffs than Le Cruset, plus you can find the real deal in thrift stores for a couple bucks. My mom picked up a LC double boiler for something like $3.
