Rated 5 out of 5 by CamdenTommy This dutch oven is so hot I posted its picture on Facebook
First and foremost it arrived undamaged. That's a really good start. It looks great, has great heft, and cooks evenly. The drip pattern in the lid is great. The interior is coated but not in the quick-to-discolor white enamel that some other cookware, even Le Creuset, has. It instead has a nice dark enamel that's about he same color as the cast iron underneath so when it gets scratched ,as it inevitably will no matter how careful you are, it will still look great.
If there's a downside it's that some people may not like the heft of it. I'm a big guy so it's not a problem for me, but for anyone for whom lifting heavy objects is a problem this may not be the best solution. However that is in no way a criticism of the dutch oven. If you want the benefits of cast iron you have to put up with the weight.
I got mine on sale and I got terrific value. Even at full retail though, it's a solid buy. I have quite a lot of Le Creuset and I think this is even better quality at a much better price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Layton1 Has hot spots, doesnt cook evenly.
I bought this for myself for mothers day and was excited to use it since it had great reviews. Every time I have used it the food has stuck to the "non stick" surface and burned. I've tried several different soups, stews and chili's and every single time, it sticks and burns. Also it has started rusting in the bottom even after being careful to dry thoroughly and store with a light coat of oil. It seems the "non stick" layer on my particular pot is not thick enough.
I am very sad since its such a beautiful pot, but I find myself frustrated every time I use it so I'm getting rid of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bluejeep153 Fantastic!
I have wanted one of these Dutch Ovens for a long time. I was finally able to buy it with rewards, coupons and a gift card. I was so excited and couldn't wait to use it. It's still pretty new, and I've only used it 3 times. I picked the 7 quart in the color blue. So far I have cooked baked beans on my glass top stove. Chili in the oven and roasted chicken in the oven. Everything turned out great and the cleanup wasn't as bad as I thought. If you use it on your stove top, just be careful to pick it up and not slide it, as it can scratch the surface. I will be using it more as winter sets in and can't wait to try other foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by salafen This is a gift for my daughter and she will be thrilled!
This is, hands down, the greatest buy I have ever made! The dutch oven is truly beautiful and would be a great addition to any kitchen. A lot of soups and stews and roasts will be happily prepared in this item.
