The largest dutch oven sells for $99. That's much cheaper than a Le Creuset or Staub but still more expensive than a similar size from Lodge, which sells a 6-quart for $78.
The lids do have spikes on the undersides (you can see them on the upturned lid, above), a trademark of Staub cocottes, which are great for braising. We didn't have a lot of time to inspect these on our trip, but we know some of you have tried these Ikea pots in your homes. What do you think? More on dutch ovens:
