    Cooks Illustrated rated this DO a Best Buy some years ago. A fraction of the cost of Le Creuset, and works exactly the same. Have had mine for several years and the enamel has held up just fine. 

    The knob on the top of mine was a phenolic knob, rated for 400°F or something thereabouts. I replaced the knob with a metal cabinet knob from HD, and recently replaced that with a metal Le Creuset knob from Amazon.

    You gotta be kidding. I bought mine for $ 12 shipped with prime a couple of months ago.

    @ChuckChampion  I'm thinking a knob is a knob. As long as the hole in the lid accepts the screw for the new knob it shouldn't be a problem.
