I have two of these and they are great to cook with. I also have a whole set of these pots and pans. This is great for cooking and needing to strain off food. Do not put in dishwasher. Hand wash only. Highly recommend.
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.
