affordable Dutch ovens for sourdough
I am thinking of selling some of my sourdough bread at the local farmers market, and need to buy a couple of Dutch ovens. So far I've been baking in an old cracked lacloche and a heavy lodge cast iron pan which is shaped kinda like lacloche - shallow pan and tall lid. I prefer how bread comes out in lacloche, and the lodge pan is too heavy for me with a single long handle on the side. I also prefer this design - shallow pan, tall lid because it's easier for me to load bread into it. But I'm starting to think about switching to Dutch ovens.
Lacloche are about $75 on Amazon and purchasing 2-4 at once is a bit pricy. So far I've bought 3 on ebay or similar websites for $40-$50 and EVERY SINGLE ONE has arrived broken.
Could anyone recommend a reasonably priced about 10-11 inches diameter Dutch oven that has worked really well for them for sourdough bread? I don't know anything about Dutch ovens... There is le creuset of course, but that's unaffordable.
Thank you so much!!
