Each piece from our extensive range of high-quality enameled cast iron cookware is designed for ease and versatility of use, fitting in with all styles of cooking, all types of cooking appliances and any style of kitchen or dining decor. Please read this section before using your cookware for the first time. The information it contains will help you achieve the best possible cooking results.
Enameled cast iron is a remarkable and robust material that performs well with modern requirements for food preparation and cooking. Whether you choose to stir-fry, slow-cook a casserole, sear a steak or bake a cake, there is a shape that is suitable. Cast iron performs well for either slow cooking or high-temperature searing.
Cast iron can be used reliably on any heat source, including induction, and with any oven or grill. It has the ability to retain heat efficiently, which allows for use of lower heat settings in stovetop and oven cooking. On the table, a hot covered dish will keep food hot for second servings.
Cast iron can also be used to keep foods cold. A chilled dish becomes an ideal cold food server on a hot summer day. It can also be placed in the freezer for food storage or advanced food preparation
High heat temperatures should only be used for boiling water for vegetables or pasta, or for reducing the consistency of stocks or sauces. High heats should never be used to preheat a pan before lowering the heat for cooking. Cast iron retains heat so efficiently that overheating will cause food to burn or stick.
The vitreous enamel surface is impermeable and therefore ideal for raw or cooked food storage, and for marinating with acidic ingredients such as wine.

The 5 1/2 quart pot is terrific, but it is too small for many soups, stews, etc. I can much more easily picture scenarios where people would be wishing the 5 1/2 quart had more room, while it is harder to imagine a case where this one would be too big.
I wish all my cookware were of such a high quality.
Because I got it from Amazon Warehouse, the box was damaged. At closer look, the pot itself is not perfect (the enamelled orange is a bit thin here and there), however there are no chips anywhere. And in fact, I kind of like that it's not perfect because Le Creuset used to be more concerned with quality than aesthetics years ago before they were catapulted into stardom by the movie Julie & Julia. This oven works, it looks beautiful and it has history. So for $145.00, I am good on all those fronts.
If you don't intend to brown foods in it, or don't cook a whole lot, or are on a tight budget, you probably will be content with the Lodge. Personally I prefer the Le Creuset and I find that unless I need both at the same time, the other sits in the cabinet. This is definitely my go-to pot now.
The cast iron with the enamel finish is ideal for cooktop or oven. It works with gas, electric and induction cooktops -- and we have used them on all three. The light color on the interior of the pot makes it easier to see how the food is browning, and how much fond is developing.
It is a heavy pot, which I like, as I believe it helps provide a more even heat to the pot.
