I am absolutely in love with this little enamel cast iron Petite French Oven. I ordered the 1.5 qt size in the Graphite color and could not be happier with my purchase. It is is the perfect size to make rice for 1-6 people (probably enough rice for 6-8 depending on if it is a side dish or main), quinoa and oatmeal. Morning oatmeal turned out to be the best I've ever made!! The cast iron takes longer to heat up inititally than stainless, but once it does, the superior heat retention makes for really fluffy, perfectly cooked grains and rice. In addition to that, the petite oven itself is gorgeous. I can take it straight from the cooktop or oven to the table and it looks like a beautiful serving piece. I am looking forward to trying it for something other than rice and grains (like soup for two or baked beans). This is my second piece of Staub enamel cast iron cookware and I just love everything about it!
This pot is fairly heavy duty. I bought this along with 3 qt pot. It works on all types of stoves including induction stoves. It is oven and broiler safe too! The rims are tapered so it is easy to pour. The lids are well fitting too! The pot and lid are also dishwasher safe.I would highly reccommend this!
