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.
Cleans so easily and cooks beautifully. I have the fancy brand also (L.C.) and this Lodge pan seems just as high quality for 1/4 the price. Pretty blue color. Excellent size for family meals. Heavy. . .don't buy if you think you'll have a problem lifting it. Otherwise, can't recommend highly enough!
