I purchased this Braiser about 2 years ago. After about 1 year it started showing hairline cracks. The cracks have turned into missing chips. I must throw the pot away since I don't know what else to do with it.
I bought this and the soup pot. You have to keep stirring often or the food burns on the bottom even with plenty of oil and liquid. It does clean up easily with soap and baking soda but the constant scorching of food is a big problem. I'll use it as long as I can, but I won't be buying any more. It is probably going to work better in the oven (lasagne, casserole type dishes) but for a stew or curry, this is not working as I had hoped.
I like to cook in a heavy pan and this pan meets my family's needs.
Well, I have been through a number of pans, celebrity, new non-stick and tried and true. And like the first reviewer, cast iron is simply too heavy to use. So I went really looking and studying and decided that enamel on steel would be the way to go. Then I came across this pan. And it is wonderful. Cast iron, but light and enamel, which is environmentally safe and durable. I'm in love. And on the first use I burned, I mean really burned, the pan. It cleaned with ease. A Little sprinkling of baking soda and a little bit of dish soap and a dish cloth scrubby. And that was enough. Almost no elbow grease. Well. The second night I baked in the oven--lasagne. All burnt on and gooey. It also cleaned with ease. Not to mention cooking beautifully both on top of the stove to brown meat and onions, etc, but then to just pile in the ingredients and bake in the oven. So now I will buy the rest of the line. And hope that this one will last the rest of my lifeltime--I'm 60. Happy cooking folks. And the price is amazing. This pan will get used a lot!
Ok, a couple of years ago I got a big cast-iron pot with lid because all the cooking shows were all about them. It was so heavy when I had stuff in it to cook, it actually bowed down my cheap oven's rack! And it was so heavy!! And really huge!!
