    I have been cooking with cast iron for many years and have collected many pieces over the years, but so far I have only purchased one enameled cast iron item--and it has been great, but the exterior finish has developed some chipping (probably not the fault of the pot, more likely due to rough handling by some family members) plus the light interior is no longer as nice looking as it used to be...it was one of the mid-range offerings made in China for an American company, and I definitely got my money's worth, but I also figured it could not possible be on the same level as Le Creuset or Staub (which I have been coveting for a long time, but have been hesitant to spend the money) so when I ran across a great deal on this one here on STP, I decided this would be my birthday gift from my husband!
    I read a lot of reviews before taking the plunge, trying to decide between Staub and Le Creuset, and even without the excellent price, I was leaning toward this brand. It arrived in perfect condition last week and it is just beautiful--very large, very heavy & holds enough for a pretty large gathering! and I'm sure I will be passing it down to my kids or grandkids! I have already used it three times, and I have a pot roast ready to go in the oven right now! And the results are just wonderful--everything I have tried is delicious (and I'm not exactly renowned for my cooking ability). Oh, my gosh! Why didn't I buy one of these years ago? I have made a soup, a huge batch of meatballs (enough for at least 4 meals for my family of five, and it wasn't even 1/2 full!) For a pot roast or stew, it is so easy to brown the meat, add the other ingredients and pop it in the oven for a couple of hours and everything stays fork-tender and moist and the flavor is so deep and rich. I like the black matte interior--looks like cast iron, but is enamel so it is very easy to clean, no staining or discoloring and no need to worry about seasoning. My understanding is that a patina develops over time and the interior becomes non-stick over time, but so far nothing has stuck to it, anyway. The lid has those dimples to distribute the condensation over the entire surface of the food. I like this so much, I already bought another one in a different size/style! and I'm sure a few more will follow... I can't recommend this highly enough--one of my best purchases through STP. This would make a terrific gift, too--I will probably end up getting one for each of my adult kids and I'm sure my Dad would love a small version (maybe for Xmas--I will have to start saving up!)

    It is a pleasure to prepare meals with any staub. My collection is growing thanks to STPs great prices.

    Soups and stews are easy. Hesitated on cost, but glad I bought it. Oxtail soup was delicious.
