I'm a big fan of Lodge cast iron, but I've purchased two different (new, in the sealed box) DO's in the last two weeks, from two different places, and they've both been in really rough shape. The first one I ordered from Amazon. I'd read theories that companies have started selling their seconds through Amazon, figured that might be what happened, and sent it back. The second one I bought at Dick's Sporting Goods last night. When I got home and opened it up, it was the same issue. Scuffs, scratches, and most importantly, rusty spots where the factory-applied seasoning apparently did not grab. I'm thinking very strongly of returning this one too and giving Camp Chef a try. Am I overreacting? I can easily re-season the pot and be on my merry way, but the fundamentalist in me doesn't want to buy a product from a company that is letting their quality slip. What do you guys think?
