I've spent a long time looking at different Dutch Ovens. I'm glad that I took the time to select this. I was very impressed with the quality of this Dutch Oven, the price is incredible. We have our first gas oven and cook-top. I've always had electric or a glass top range. I love the gas, and making a roast is easier when browning the meat. I like that the lid can be used as a skillet too. Instead of having a knob on the center of the lid. I admit, at first I had to think about how to remove the lid at first. I would usually just grab the knob on the lid, on this I just rotate the lid a little then lift it off.
This comes pre-seasoned but I re-seasoned it anyway, it didn't need it, but use makes cast iron better. I made a great pot roast and sauteed the onions, celery and potato's in the top. This made the entire process much easier. Delicious, my wife posted everything to her facebook and we received "gobs" of complements. I did notice a first use Iron Taste, but the more this is used, the less that will occur. I still needed to wash, and re-season with shortening, that's me, but I've never had any cast iron rust up on me, particularly a new piece. Learning how to use Cast Iron is important.
Honestly! I don't think I could have made a better buy.
