    Beautiful dutch oven does the trick, January 3, 2011

    Well, I’ve been wanting a dutch oven for many years, and I finally got this one as a gift. It’s huge (8.5 quarts) and substantial, but not so heavy that it’s hard to manage when filled (a challenge you will find with the traditional cast-iron dutch oven, especially one of this size). The non-stick surface works great – just remember to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and avoid using non-stick sprays, which can be hard to remove and possibly damaging. Instead, rub some vegetable oil around the surface with a paper towel. Works just fine.

    So far I have made a moussaka in this pan (I didn’t have a baking dish large enough for the recipe), which was a great success, and last night I made a french onion soup that was fantastic – my family couldn’t stop raving about the flavor of the soup! The only challenge is that with a french onion soup you are looking for a “fond” to develop as the onions cook (for a deep, caramelized flavor), which isn’t really that easy to do with a non-stick surface. Still it worked out, and clean-up took no time at all. I don’t think this would fit in my dishwasher, but I don’t generally put large pots in there anyway.

    Unlike cast iron dutch ovens, this one features a glass lid, which made checking on my roasting onions much easier.

    I would highly recommend this dutch oven if you want a pot that goes from stove to oven, will accommodate large quantities of food, and provides the ease of a non-stick surface.

    I NEEDED A POT LARGER THAN 6 QUARTS SO I BOUGHT THIS. WHAT COUGHT MY EYE
    WAS THAT YOU COULD USE THIS ON STOVE STOP OR IN THE OVEN AND IS NON STICK.

    I MADE CABBAGE ROLLS IN THIS POT. IT WAS EASY TO ROTATE THE ROLLS
    FOR EVEN COOKING. HELD A LOT OF SAUCE AND DID NOT SPILL OVER THE TOP.

    MADE STUFFED FLANK STEAK BRIOGOLE WITH VEGETABLES. BRAISED VERY WELL IN
    THE OVEN. CAME OUT GREAT.

    ALSO MADE CHICKEN SOUP. ALOT OF SPACE FOR ALL INGREDIENTS.

    BEST OF ALL IT CLEANS SO EASILY!!!! LOVE IT!!
