I really don't see a huge difference in stainless versus a GOOD dutch oven, because the point is that it conducts heat very well, and very evenly. I have a terrible Cuisinart dutch oven that was gifted to me in a gift exchange thing in college, and it's just not made well. Le Creuset is amazing and does what it's supposed to do with conduction. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Get yellow. It's so happy.
