- even heat distribution
- sleek design
- nice weight
as good as Cousances, Le Creuset and/or Staub
I've been collecting/cooking with enameled cast iron for decades. this pot (with its handy grill pan lid) is easily as good as my more expensive items. it holds and distributes and enormous amount of heat very easily, and everything works perfectly. the price is no more than half what I'd pay for the more established brands. I'm very impressed!
