A Calphalon Dutch Oven with a sear surface on the bottom is a wonderful and useful piece of cookware! Being able to sear the meat right in the pot it's going to be cooked in is really great--saves prep time and clean-up time, and results in even more delicious meals of short ribs, pot roast, chili, etc.
About 90% of my cookware is Calphalon and this Dutch oven is going to be a frequently used part of the collection. I love Calphalon's sturdy construction and long-lasting nonstick surfaces. It maintains even temperatures, responds quickly to changes and is very easy to clean. I especially love that the Unison cookware is made in the US.
This Dutch oven is attractively shaped with ergonomic handles and and a close-fitting lid. It's built to last, and I recommend it to anyone who appreciates fine cookware, especially at Sierra Trading Post prices!
