Anyone familiar with Sur La Table enameled cast iron cookware?

I noticed Sur La Table makes its own brand of enameled cast iron pots. Has anyone bought these and are they of good quality? Better than the cheaper kind I can get at Cost Plus World Market or Target or from Lodge? Thank you.
Thank you, DuffyH. I wasn't familiar with this brand. The only thing is, I can't seem to find any round Fontignac cocottes larger than a 5.25qt online (don't want oval). I need something with about a 7 or 8 qt capacity.
I'd give the SLT line a shot, but I'm concerned it might not be really durable. A 7qt is around $79, about the same as a Lodge. And they've made the interior enamel black, which I'm guessing is less about aesthetics and more so you won't notice when the enamel chips.
Just bumping this thread to see if anyone can comment on the Sur La Table brand enameled cast iron 7 qt Dutch oven and tell me how it compares to other brands.
Hi ninrn. I'm sorry I can't speak to their enameled cast iron, but since you're still looking for an answer ... I can say that I've been VERY happy with the SLT stainless/triply cookware, and think it's of comparable quality to (and much cheaper than) All-Clad. If they put the same manufacturing standards into their ECI, I bet you'll be happy. If you can, wait for a sale; their own branded stuff gets marked down as much as 40%, probably putting it at the same price point as Lodge and the others. Plus, SLT has a pretty generous return policy, so if you're unhappy after using it they'll take it back, though I'm not sure in what time frame. Good luck!
