Until yesterday, I had not ever been on a shopping trip that included purchasing a cast-iron cooking pot for $356 (original price: $455)(I was not the purchaser of this pot). What is more, I have never paid $6 for a $356 pot, thanks to wads and wads of shopping vouchers. It was a moment to behold from the sidelines of the cash register.
The pot, by the way, is not only an excellent cooking pot, but also shows great potential for clobbering unwanted party gatecrashers on the head or, if the spirit moves you, dropping into a sink to see how far the cracks in the kitchen counter will run. Clearly, it is a win.
