We use this for a one pot chicken or pork chop recipe. Saute on fire, finishing cooking in oven. Holds a great amount of food and liquid This is a heavy pan
We've had this pot for a couple of months now & now I wonder why I waited so long to get a new one. This one replace an old copper-bottom pan belonging to my MIL which we used until the handle broke off. This pan heats much more quickly & evenly than the old pan. The handle stays surprisingly cool, although I still use a pot holder. The glass lid is great! Very, very pleased!
This pot is great for stews. The only issue I have is that the inside of the pot is not like the other Paul Deen pots & pans that I have. Her other pots & pans have a non-stick coating on the inside. This pot does not! So you have keep it on a very low heat or whatever you are cooking will stick & burn on the bottom.
I bought this & the 12 piece pots & Pans set. I have everything Anolon now. I also recommend the 4.5qt stockpot, 14" skillet, 10 qt stockpot as a starter set. The cooking took are great with this, matches perfect. The lids mix & match too...you won't need any extra.
