I am seriously looking at these to use on an induction cooktop.
Have never had one and searching online I see a great deal of price difference.
I am thinking to just get a lower priced one to start with and see how I like it.
Does anyone have any advice or experience to share?

We have 2. One for camper and one for home. Got the first from Walmart and second from Amazon. Both are 6 quart and cost less than $40.Stopped using the crock pot after getting this.Easy to clean and maintain.

How much can the cost to manufacture a cast iron pot vary. The only difference is in the MARKETING cost. One brand will work as well as the next.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

I have a Lodge porcelain coated. It works fine on an induction burner.

You need to make sure there isn’t a ridge on the bottom.

Thanks everyone for the advice. Probably pick up one today. Looking forward to testing it out.

Never thought about looking out for a ridge on bottom. Thanks for the heads up.

We received the Kirkland brand of Le Cruset as a gift. Looks identical and even says made in France on the bottom. Don't know the cost but it works great

Cast iron is very durable and then you can cook on a fire.

I don't have any enamel covered cast but I use cast iron pans that are over a hundred years old for most of my cooking both at home and on the road. A properly seasoned pan can be used for almost anything and is easy to maintain.

I bought several pieces of Enamel cast Iron. (It's beautiful)
My wife never wanted them used camping...
Eventually I sold them all.
I have a lot of Cast Iron skillets and D.O.'s
I love cooking with Iron.
When we camp I always carry at least a small D.O. and two cast Iron skillets.

Yes I go overboard with Cast Iron...
Results speak for themselves.
