Le Creuset vs. other brands (split from Ontario board)

I'd spend the $ on the Le Cruset. I got a Daniel Boulud one and it's already chipped. I have a REALLY old Le Cruset and it's flawless.

Worst kitchen screwup.

Oh man I put salt in my coffee once by accident and it was the worst taste EVER.

Worst kitchen screwup.

My first shot at Thanksgiving dinner was a nightmare. I was 21 or so. I was living in a new apartment with a gas stove. I had always used electric stoves in my youth. I turned the oven on and pre heated it, put in the turkey, so far so good. I came in to check the turkey and baste and what not about a half hour later and the oven was ice cold. Not even warm. I called the land lord to tell him something was wrong with my oven and he said "Oh you're probably out of propane" Propane? I didn't even know what that was much less that it was possible to run out of it.

The entire dinner was transported over to my dad's a couple of towns over.
