Le Creuset sells very similar dutch ovens for 5 times as much, but this option is a great alternative choice! My mom has a le creuset that has lasted over 30 years and is better for the wear. I just bought this one and used it to make barbacoa tacos, where you need to sear the meat evenly before adding the sauce and moving to the oven for braising. It turned out great and was easy to clean afterwards. The color is perfect and is a great show piece behind my glass cabinet doors. Great product!

The color is beautiful and just as it is represented online. I used it for a roast recently and it took less time than a conventional pan because it seems to generate the heat evenly. I purposely bought this dutch oven because of the lid handle which allowed it to be used in an oven. I am pleased with the purchase and hope to use it for a very long time. It cleaned very easily and the only down side would be it is heavy being cast iron.
This is my first enamelled cast iron piece. I've used it once. The side handles were easy to grip with my silicone Orka oven mitts. I was really pleased that the handle on the lid is tall enough that I could get the finger part of the mitt under it. It cleaned up beautifully.
