Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Food comes off easily. The size is a little smaller at 4-quarts. Stainless-steel knob is easy to grab with your oven mitt. Nice coloring. Weighs a little less than others of the same size. Does a great job with sauces and pastas.
It is a pretty safe oven that will not react to foods due to the PTFE and PFOA free porcelain enamel cooking surface. The surface also allows for easy and fast cleaning of the oven after using it.
If you are looking for a high quality braiser pan at half the cost, then this is definitely for you.

What reviewers didn't like

The edges of this pot can rust if they are not properly seasoned.
Quite heavy and extremely difficult to manipulate
