i am thinking of purchasing a lodge "3 qt -11-3/4" dia - 2-1/8" dep. enamel covered casserole - much cheaper than the same size le creuset

my question is - - how would the ceramic coated perform stacked up against the cast iron skillet

thanks, mr toad

    for casseroles and long braising i prefer the enamelled one, especially when tomatoes are involved. for use at higher temps like searing scallops or blackening fish, seasoned castiron

    I have both and prefer the enamelled but the seasoned CI works fine and is much less expensive.
    When in doubt add more pepper.

    i have both! They are both the same and will perform the same tasks there is more work to the straight cast iron.
