was recently at a harbor freight store and noticed a 12" dutch oven for $25 and can get it for $20 if you bring in a print of the internet price. it's unseasoned. i'm wanting a DO and the ones at wallyworld (lodge) the same size are $50. what do ya think?

Hmm, Harbor Freight is the Chinese stuff capital right behind WallyMart.

My guess is it will be pretty thin stuff, but for $25 bucks it could be worth a shot... I would WASH it and then WASH it again before I seasoned it though...

Go for it and see how it works and then let us know if it's worth the buy.

Right on. You might as well do it right the first time.

Plus the first time you cook a few things in that baby you'll be glad you have it.

Congrats on the new piece!

Lodge is good stuff as well is Camp Chef..Wash it real good with..Soap and water,Yes the only time that cast will ever see soap..Never after this use soap unless You want to real condition it again..

Then dry in the oven at 350 degrees for an hour let cool and oil it..Reheat oven to 350 and cook it for 1 hour let cool and repeat everytime You use it just no soap..

Look forward to You enjoying the D.O and seeing the pictures of some nice "1 pot wonders or 4 pot wonders..

When you buy Lodge cookware, except for the enameled stuff wich is a chinese product, your helping support the last American made cookware foundry and American jobs. All the others have gone out of business or moved to china.

I hope your is American made black iron.

Amen...the Lodge factory in South Pittsburgh Tenn is a must stop each time I'm near. Between Chatanooga and Monteagle, about 2 miles south of I-24. The store does sell some Chinese manufactured items, so make sure you're getting what you want.
I used to buy a lot of 2nds there, but lately their stock has been about what you can find in Wal-mart at about the same price...That said, the selection is amazing.
Just remember, it's like loading the trunk of your car with gold bars, It doesn't take much to put the bumper on the ground.
