have an enamel 6 quart Lodge that like LC. Have to get crane to lift the thing when I fill it up, though. Make chili in it last weekend.
There was an interesting article posted here (i think) not too long ago about LC being much lighter than the competition, and that's part of what makes it better. I'll have to see if I can find it.
In my kitchen, I have a couple of non stick pans (both 10 in), a 12 in sauté pan, a LC cast iron skillet (12 in), 1,2,3 qt saucepans, 2 5 qt Dutch ovens (1 aluminum and 1 enamel coated cast iron), and a couple of other pieces. Some were free, which is why i have duplicate sizes. If I had to do it all over again, I would still buy all of the aluminum pieces I have, along with the cast iron Dutch oven.
I also have a 10 & 12 qt stock pot- 1 purchased, 1 inherited. I want a 16 or 20 qt pot, and I think i'll be pretty much done after that.
