This enameled casserole/roaster is big and beautiful. It is a purchase I won't use often, but when I need to brown a roast, prepare a stew, or make a huge pot of chili - I'll be going to this pot. I'll need help lifting it, but that was anticipated with a large cast iron piece! I'm happy with this purchase.
This cast iron Dutch oven is easy to use and easy to clean. The interior enamel finish reduces sticking and makes cleanup easy. The little "nubs" in the interior of the lid help collect and condense vapors inside of the pot, thereby keeping everything moist. This Dutch oven easily outperforms a previous one that I owned.
I ordered this pot because I knew it should be of the highest quality. It didn't disappoint. The finish is smooth, even and beautiful and the color is rich. The weight of this piece is amazing. Again, I knew what I was ordering and what I got was a cast iron casserole of quality. The packaging prior to shipment was a joke and the pot was barely contained in it's box when it arrived. This pot weighs approximately 17 lbs. A couple of strips of tape will do nothing towards protection during shipping. Fortunately, mine arrived without a scratch, however, I can picture this piece arriving with the enamel chipped, cracked or scratched. For a price of **** you'd think Overstock could offer better shipping prep.
