Fontignac vs LeCrueset

I was in BB&B yesterday and came across the Fontignac brand. I have never heard of this brand, it said on the lid that it's made in France. I've been looking at the LC 5 qt oval, but the Fontignac prices are closer to my budget. Has anyone had any experience with this brand. Is it worth it or should I just save up for the LC?

      MrsT, if you search this board for references to Fontignac and Staub Basix, you'll find several other comments on this topic.

        Thanks all, funny thing is I totally missed it in reading other posts I have saved "for research". That shows me for posting while exhausted.
