Used it the day it arrived to make chicken chili. The chili turned out great. Clean up was a breeze. Be sure to ready the enclosed pamplet as you are not to use heat over Medium. Everything cooked perfect due to the conduction of the cast iron.
Beautiful pot, but very heavy. Cast Iron is heavy of course, but it's almost un liftable for my 120 lb frame. Add a roast and potatoes and I almost tip over. I should have gotten the smaller version. The lid alone is weighty. Work out points for doing dishes.
I love this dutch oven. It cooks like Cast Iron,but way easier to clean up. The pot is heavy, which is not an issue for me, but would something to consider if you do not have good hand strength. (A heavy pot full of hot food, could be dangerous trying to remove from the oven)
