Le Creuset Clearance!!! (And Tramontina impressions)
Gah! I picked up some bakeware for 75% off of the "already low" Marshall's price yesterday! I can't wait to use it! People, check your local Marshall's, TJMaxx, etc... Also, I bought the Tramontina (WalMart) 6 qt dutch oven, and their Mulit-Cooker yesterday. Returned the Mulit-Cooker today because it had MULTIPLE flaws. The bottom had "chips" missing... as though gouged with a hammer... though no other signs of use, the handle on the steamer basket was cock-eyed, etc. When I got home, I realized that the dutch oven has "drip marks" where the enamel "bled," and there are two white spots on the red pot where there's no enamel at all. Not worth it, IMO. I'd rather pay once and have it forever than waste my time and money trying to use this sub-par stuff. Just my opinion.
