This is a pot can be used for three generations.
I boil pasta, steam vegetable, make sauce, make soup, and braise beef in this pot. This Dutch oven is the best pot I ever have, and I cannot imagine having my kitchen without this pot! Pors: easy to clean, cooks anything really well, last forever, (off course)oven proof. Cons: heavy, little pricy (but well worth it!)
I got this pot at $100 by luck. Since then, I have been searching the second luck, because I really want to have a larger version so that I can braise may be not a whole, but at least a half beef brisket.
TRUST ME, YOU WOULD NOT REGRET! YOU WILL LOVE THIS ONE. ....seiko
