Description & pics refer to both the red 5.5 qt casserole or red 12" chicken fryer, but I don’t see any option to select the fryer for purchase. At $50, the red fryer is $15 cheaper than the gray or blue ones, so perhaps it sold out already…? If so, the references to the red 12" chicken fryer should be removed.
The gray and dark blue color options for Cuisinart porcelain enamel cast iron pots are new to me - previously, the offerings were always this red or a lighter blue.
We’ve owned various sizes of the red and lighter blue pots and used them frequently. While we love the look and heavy weight cast iron, the porcelain enamel on every one of our Cuisinart pots has chipped easily, and the underlying cast iron then rusts and stains the area around it. We attributed this vulnerability - easy to chip - to the relatively cheap price for these pots (similarly sized Le Crueset pots cost at least $100 more). Does anyone know whether the new darker blue or gray pots have porcelain enamel that is less prone to chipping?
