Made in France by real French people.
Green and Blue available.
This thing is big and great for large batches of soups/stews/stocks/large roasts.
The fluer de lis pattern on the inside of the lid is a very nice touch.
Has a flat lid with a rim around it for outdoor/camping use (you put coals on top as well as underneath for more even cooking), for really old school cooking.
An 8 qt Le Creuset piece goes for 300$ on AMZN
Info from site:
Since 1926 Fontignac has continued the French tradition of using cast iron cookware. Cast iron is known for its strength, healthy cooking without excess fat, and even heat diffusion. Fontignace features a cream enameled interior that does not require seasoning and is easy to clean. To keep your food moist during the cooking process, the lid features self-basting waves. The lid is accented with a stainless steel knob which is heat resistant up to 485°F. Fontignac Dutch ovens have a smooth enameled bottom and are compatible for all cook tops, including induction. Made in France.
