    I bought 12 inch enameled cast iron griddle at local TJ Maxx and has just Made in France stamped in the back. Saleswoman said that they usually get Le Creuset or Staub. I did look at Staubs and they usually have long handle and “Staub” stamped on the handle. So what did I buy and does it worth it $48?

    it looks very much like my staub "double handled grill pan". but my staub has the name on each of the "helper handles".
    It may very well be a copy cat or might be the work of a subcontractor that staub used, then switched, but the subcontractor still had the original molds.
    I have staub, LeC and many other enameled cast iron pots and pans. it doesn't have to be a major name brand to be good. I've got tons of Lodge, Tramontina, and other brands by designers like Daniel cremieux. They're all good! and when I say I have a ton of enameled cast iron, it isn't saying I own a large quanity,, it's just that cast iron is do heavy. LOL
    Again,, it's probably made by a staub subcontractor that is no longer making for them
