I need info about Le Creuset Dutch oven

skrome Aug 5, 2012 02:48 PM

I picked up yesterday at a thrift store a black Le Creuset pot for the unbelievable price of $6.00. It's a 51/2 quart, round, #25, Dutch or French oven and after a bit of research found out that it's designed by Enzo Mari and is in the La Mama series. It looks just about new but I want to find out when they stopped making this design. I know they started in the 70s. It also has a Le Creuset glass lid that fits well but I'm wondering if it's from another LC pot. One more thing-- the finish is mat black without the smoothness of my other LC pots. Does this mean it is plain cast iron without enamel?
