Tramontina Dutch Oven

Matash Jun 14, 2009 01:25 PM

I need your help to find the Tramontina Dutch oven 6-1/2 quart cast-iron enameled. I just phoned Ares in the West Island and thought for sure they would have it but no - only creuset -(too heavy and expensive)

    I found my 6.5 qt dutch oven at Target. The Wal Mart in my area was out.

      I'd say they are about the same weight as the LC. The work just as well. I don't think they'll last 40-50 years like an LC, since the paint chips a little--probably only 20-30, but for 1/5 the price....I bought two at Walmart--3.5 for about $30 and the 6.5 for $40. I think they raised the price though to about $40-50 respectively.

        Walmart! Love mine, but I also have a Lodge which to me is the same!

            Go online to Walmart. They will send it to the store and you don't pay any shipping. A lot of the good stuff they don't carry in the stores. I also bough some of the stainless Tramontina online, as that they defiantly don't carry in the store. I love it. It is very high quality stainless cookware.

          Isn't that the one they sell at WalMart? I just bought one recently. It's a good buy -- but it feels a lot heavier than Le Creuset to me!
