Lodge 6 QT. Enameled Ovens $48 shipped!

If anyone wants one this is about the cheapest I have seen them. In red and blue at that price from Amazon. About $48 shipped! They do chip though. I didn't knock mine around but it still had small chips on the rim and base. I have LC, but for lower end I prefer the Batali. Prettier, performs better, and a better shape.

  1. I had my chipped on the handle too. :) I knock it with a wooden soup and it chipped. Ha ha ha. A wooden spoon.

      By the way, initially, Batali Dutch ovens have several poor reviews on Amazon. More so than Lodge, which was why I bought the Lodge Color Dutch ovens. In fact, there was a picture of chipped Batali cover on the interior surface -- on the spikes, but it got removed now.

        Yes, I saw that but I have had both of them and definitely prefer the Batali I got for my mom's house when I'm there. I much prefer that one to the Lodge in all areas. I wish LC had that shape. A cross between a rondeau and a dutch oven. A beautiful design too with a metal knob. The Chianti color is gorgeous. Was only $49!

          Cool. Does any of these enameled cast iron dutch oven stain? I know the Lodge one does. I usually don't care if food stain the Dutch Oven, but last time the bare cast iron rim got rust and leaked the rust leak down the interior side and I couldn't get the rust color off. I tried vinegar, baking soda, Bar Keeper's Friend, potatoes,... I even heat these solution for hour and they simply made the rust stain faint but cannot remove it.

    2. Nice find. I bought the red version a year ago and I really like it. I've made many batches of chili, short ribs and stew with no complaints.

      Unfortunately, I paid $65 for mine.
