The pan does appear to be made in China to Lodge's specifications. It's clearly a Lodge pan with their name engraved on the handles. It doesn't bother me in the least, but if that's something that bothers you than best of luck.
For me, I have found a pan that's going to be in my kitchen for the rest of my life.
Anyway, a beautiful tool. The white interior makes it easy to ensure that you don't burn the roux. Also, no one has mentioned the extras here--stalactitic knobs on the lid that encourage condensation, which aids in braising/stewing. Nice stainless inlays on the handles. Lodge paid attention to the details here; this is a fine lifetime investment. When you add in that it's 100 or so less than the Frenchified version, it's a no-brainer where I come from. This is the best value going in enameled cast-iron cookware.
When cooking, make sure and let the pan come to temperature (which takes a while but the low consistent heat used more than makes up for it). This will be our favorite pan for generations to come!
