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.
This pan is high quality cast iron and the porcelain outside is shiny, gorgeous and durable. No chips or stains after several uses. Perfect size for the average stove top. I'm always happy when I buy Lodge brand cast iron products. Try it, you'll like it!
I have a number of enameled cast iron pieces, including LC, Staub, Chasseur, and Fontignac. The shape and size of this "casserole" is perfect for daily use. The handles are a good size and shape. The enamel has not chipped or scratched, but I only use silicone and wood utensils (never any metal). FYI: the item is made in China and the cast iron is thicker - and therefore heavier - than the ones made in France.
