I love my dutch oven. My favorite thing about it is that I can bake in it and then store the leftovers without transferring it to another container. It also looks nice when you serve food in it. My dutch oven is off-white, but I wish I would have seen the blue one in the picture!
Saving money is about finding value in items, and while that does not necessarily mean the cheapest item, it means that you will spend less in the long run. You can buy cheap pots, pans, and other kitchen supplies and keep replacing them every couple of years (my college set didn’t even last that long!) or you can get a good set that lasts you a lifetime.
Of course, that does not mean that you have to pay full price! I always look for the best item then I wait patiently until I can get it on sale. CSN Stores is definitely one of those places you can find the deals! There are over 200 stores and Cookware.com (where I found the dutch oven) is one of them. Stay tuned for a review of one of their products. It won’t be a dutch oven since I already have one, but it most certainly be for another great product!
