I don't like the more rounded bottom of the cheaper lodge ones. The nicer lodge model
may be a valid contender but it starts to get pretty close to the price of Le Creuset seconds at marshalls with cosmetic defects. Then there is the staub which has the heavier duty lid (and the basting spikes) but has a black interior which I am not a huge fan of.
My favorite thing that I have noticed about the cheaper lodge dutch ovens...is that amazon always says "frequently purchased with" and then shows the Le Creuset branded replacement knob....people are silly
