Need to clear one thing up: No way the depth listed on the 2.65-Quart Round Casserole can actually be TEN INCHES! That would make it nearly twice as deep as the next size up in the range--doesn't make sense. Depth on a Dutch Oven can be very import when cooking a large, whole chicken--something Dutch Ovens are very good at doing (and something I recommend). The issue arrises when the bird, sitting on top of whatever vegetables you've added to the pot, contacts the underside of the lid. If that happens, the chicken (skin) can stick to the lid. It happened to me once and ever since I've been looking for more headroom in my next pot! Both Staub and Le Creuset offer extra-deep versions of their Dutch Ovens, but they're among the most expensive sizes they make. As to concerns about this brand, I have several Staubs and Le Creusets Dutch Ovens and one Swiss Diamond enameled griddle pan--I consider them all equal in quality, and if there actually was a ten-inch deep Swiss Diamond available, I wouldn't hesitate for a moment!
D'oh. Just bought a Le Creuset (oval, 5 quarts) dutch oven last week. With a 30% discount (a very rare occurrence, indeed) it was still four times the price of the Swiss Diamond I would have bought here if the drop was active at that time.

In for one, Shallow Cast Shallow Casserole (6.3 Qt) Sapphire Bleu.
Hello. The prices in the blue box description are lower than the prices lower down the page. Which is correct?

The lower prices are what showed up for me during checkout.
I would put these as closer to a Staub quality (which is on par with Le Creuset) as long as you like the handles and the dark interior as opposed to the sand/light interior of some brands. Made in China; however, the enamel carries a lifetime warranty. Lodge steadfastly refuses to warranty the enamel on their pieces.
Are these as good as Le Creuset?

Mmmhmm, but go ahead and submit a claim on a chip in the enamel, and they will deny with misuse/abuse as the reason. Been there and have heard the same from other customers. Le Creuset and Staub have an image to uphold, so they don't pull that stunt. Swiss Diamond is the same way.
I had no idea about why Massdrop mentioned that the original price is $200. From the Swiss Diamond website, the price is $149 (Quoted From : https://www.swissdiamond.com/products/detail/cast-iron-round-casserole-265-qt-rubis-rouge-2 )

We get this question often. MSRP is set by manufacturers to act as the celling for pricing of a particular item, it is there to protect the consumers from price gouging and create margin for distributers. We list MSRP as the original price because it will always be the same (at least for the year) and when an item does well we want to run the same drop again without having to remake the page. Manufacturers can sell on their site for whatever price they like, and are not obligated to list at MSRP. Most of the time when you see a discrepancy on the original price listed on Massdrop and the price listed on a manufacturers website, it is because the manufacturer is listing at MAP (minimum advertised price). Almost everything we list on MD is below MAP and the reason this works is because we are running group buys then placing large orders, so the MD members are paying what are essentially distributer prices. I hope this information was helpful.
From the Swiss Diamond website " Our Diamond coated products including: Swiss Diamond Classic, Induction, HD Pro, and Swiss Titan are made in Sierre, Switzerland. Swiss Diamond Premium Steel, Prestige Knives, Kitchen Tools, and Electrics are designed in Switzerland and manufactured according to our own rigorous standards in P.R.C. "
Given the modest price, I'm pretty sure their cast iron is coming from China. That doesn't bother me at all if it is well made. Does anyone have experience of how robust the enamel coating is? For about quarter of the price of well-known French brands, I don't know how much I can expect.
