This sale is also good for 1st and 2nd. 2nd are what you find at places like TJMaxx. I personally never see the larger one at any local stores, just the smaller useless ones.
Buy a cheap one and you have OK quality and good performance, providing that you care for it properly. Made from cheaper materials so life span is probably going to be shorter than an expensive one unless you rarely use it.
Buy an expensive one like Le Crueset and you have excellent quality and great performance, but at a cost. However, it's an investment into something of very good quality and you may have it for decades if you care for it.
There is no right or wrong choice. it's like choosing between a Kia or a Lexus. Weigh the cost, compare the quality and decide which may be a better fit for your cooking habits and wallet.
Man. Here's another dilemma... which Dutch Oven to buy. Go cheap or go expensive? Is it worth the extra money?? This is why I don't have one and continue to starve...
I saw the Walmart one listed (Tramontina) for $35. Costco has a Kirkland made in France one for about $80. Lodge has some nice enamel ones for as low as $40 and some basic black iron looking ones for a little less but Le Crueset has a deal going on. The nearest outlet is about 3 hours away but here's the link.
Again, not sure if I should wait for black friday on this..just buy a cheap one or just drive down this weekend and grab a 6.5 qt oval Le Crueset???
So you are considering driving 6hrs (3hrs each way) on your weekend to pay more for the Le Crueset? Just because they are promising to sell you for a few bucks less?
I guess it depends on how much you value your time at (plus the not insignificant cost of the gasoline and wear and tear on your car). If you do need a Dutch Oven, I'd go with the Tramontina myself - I very much doubt it will make any difference on any food you ever cook on it.
