Fontignac enameled 'steam cooking' cast iron cookware
Does anyone have experience with or knowledge of Fontignac enameled cast iron cookware? It's made in France, and has the dimpling inside the lid (?like the doufeu of Le Creuset), and the Diva ones have an indent on the lid holder for a spoon. They're supposed to be ok on any kind of oven/stove, but I didn't see any temperature maximum mentioned on the website.
I like the colors which include a darker green than the kiwi that's popular now in Le Crueset, a pretty yellow (vanille), blue and ebony. I saw a few in a cookware store, and a round casserole Diva pot was under $110 Cdn.
I'm wondering how it performs compared to Le Creuset which seems to be a gold standard (I have none of any.... yet). Oh yes, and whether the dimpling design would preclude any type of cooking that the regular Le Creuset type items do, re the "steam cooking".
