KitchenAid Enamel/Cast Iron Dutch Oven
OK....so I know most hounds drool over Le Creuset but I just acquired a 7 qt. KA dutch oven for a very good (certainly compared to LeC) price...
Anyone have any experience with these items???
I am pretty happy with it and am planning my first use in the next few days....
Can only relay my sister's experience with these: Her boyfriend is quite lunatic, and tends to "forget" food cooking while doing something else... Well, something he was cooking in the oven did overheat, and it was a burned-in mess. Nothing could clean it, and she reverted to strong chemicals (I believe VIM). Well, the mess did clear a bit, but the enamel did not resist (cracked, so she threw out the pot).
I have no idea how a more expensive pot (Creuset, Staub, ...) would have behave, so I can't compare. Maybe someone else has a LC incident to share?
I'm lucky, DH doesn't cook, and he doesn't forget anything if I ask him to start/stop something while I'm out...
