Le Creuset: Is it worth it?
So over in the food section, there's a discussion of the six most important tools in your kitchen. Again and again, "Le Creuset Dutch oven" comes up. Like many cooks, I covet just such a pot, but I'm stymied by the high cost. For those of you who own Le Creuset products, have you found them to be worth the money? Is there a cheaper brand that makes Dutch ovens of similar quality?
