I need a new pot for chillies and spaghetti sauces just wondering how a pot like this would hold up to the BGE?Canadian tire has these for 1/2 price right now.


  • Mike,

    Saw them on the weekend. They looked good to me but you wouldn't know how the enamel is going to stand up without trying. That is about a quarter the price of Le Creuset though. The William Ashley sale is on in TO right now and they usually have Le Creuset on at a reduced price.

    Should do fine. The finish on the bottom may suffer over time if used direct, but no big deal.

    should be fine i use a cheap enameled dutch i got from marshals for around 30 bucks, works every bit as good as my lecrueset dutch in the egg. the lecrueset shines on a simmer plate stove top, you wont notice the difference in an egg.
  • Hey Mike,

    A month or so ago I bought the 5 and 7qt from Canadian Tire. I've used each 3 or for 4 times direct and indirect. So far vary happy. Easy to clean and the price is good!

    I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar.

    Someone on this site gave the heads up about 2 months back on one of those at Canadian Tire at that price. I had my Mom pick one up. That's a great price. For me it's much too pretty to put in my egg. I have a cast iron (old as hell) one that I use in the egg. I'm sure it will work. Just be careful on temp if it has a plastic handle. Haven't seen mine yet in person so I don't know what it has.

  • I picked one up today after seeing this post. The 5qt (reg $150) and the 3.5qt (reg $100) are both on sale for 50$. there is silicone in the handle but they say its fine up to 500degrees. Seemed like a good deal to me.
