Someone mistakenly gave this Dutch Oven a 1 Star rating because they are confused about the inside coating. I own the Blue one & it's a beautiful color, and the inside is a high quality enamel coating similar to Staub or Le Creuset. Here's what I wrote about my blue... btw, this is an excellent value for the price $79 vs those two above...
Ok, this is definitely a big step-up from Lodge but not as good as Le Creuset or Staub in terms of very minor finish issues. The deep blue color is a dark blue and is beautiful. It had one pin size ""fish-eye"" [that's a technical term used for this finish issue] on the bottom outside heat surface side. This is due to the coating process not working perfectly to cover the surface evenly leaving this tiny pin mark tip-point that's a micro-indentation. The other issue was the bottom inside of the pan had a couple of raised bumpy areas like the coating was too heavy and caused some elevated drip or ""hills"" that cured into the final finish. This might cause some food build-up in that uneven area when cooking a sauce. I think this should have been inspected better for these finish issues, otherwise this is a top quality 5 star dutch oven.
This is not for a weak armed person or for small cramped cooking stove-top areas, as this is one big-sized hefty and pretty cooking pot... I will exchange mine for another one...
Btw, the shipping package quality is excellent, so I can recommend it for shipping safety. I give it 4-1/2 Stars, since I have to exchange it... but the quality is very good. I don't think I want or need a bigger cast iron dutch oven than this size, as it would be too big, heavy, and unwieldy to deal with... I'd rather use 2 smaller pots instead
This pan does NOT have an enamel interior. It is black cast iron. Sadly all the Sur la Table dutch ovens and enameled pans in this category have incorrect descriptions. Have to wonder why this hasn't been corrected yet. I brought this problem up with customer service when I sent back my multipan.
We really enjoy the Dutch oven, we got it in red and the color is nice. Not sure how long it will last but for the money we thought we would give it a try and so far we are pleased with our purchase. The only thing I would change is the knob, it gets hot and you have to use a mitt
This is my fifth pot that I have ordered and I love them all. I use them all the time making soups and stews. I even use them when canning especially if I am reducing something such as tomato sauce. My gas stove has an accu simmer setting and I can put this heavy pot on that eye and leave it all night with no burning or scorching. I highly recommend them. They are not recommended for the flat cooking tops because of the weight of them but if you have a gas or regular electric stove, go for it you won't be sorry
I was looking for a large, heavy pot to cook stews, soups and such. This is exactly what I expected it to be. It heats evenly, I can turn the heat to a very low setting to maintain optimum cooking temp. This is an ""everyday workhorse"". Not the prettiest, maybe a couple of little rough spots, but worth every dime
Bought this for our ski condo - it was on sale and I needed something in which to cook chili and other dishes. Overall, a great buy for the price. Similar to my Staub pieces. I would recommend this as a great starter piece or, as I am using it, a terrific piece for a vacation home
Rust forms and drips from top edge of pot and top into food
I will be returning this pot. Rust was present on the pot when i opened the box that was shipped to me. I thought once i washed it and dried it thoroughly, it would perhaps not reappear. Unfortunately, it appeared during cooking and dripped rusty condensaton back into my food. I agree with Treehouse that the pot is not like Le Creuset on the interior. It has a much rougher finish similar to non-enameled frying pans such as Lodge. Can't recommend.
I love, love, love my Staub and few Le Creuset cookware but this one is more reasonably priced and has the hivets on the cover that I love in the Staub line as it causes condensation to steep back into the pot and keeps the food moist and hydrated. Meat never dries out. I assume this will perform as well without the price. I also needed a larger pot.
I bought this as a gift for my sister-in-law because she likes to cook. We have one and it makes the best Pot Roast and stews that I have ever had. Throw away your Crock-Pot and buy one of these instead. It is great for any kind of slow cooking.
I liked this Dutch Oven for size. A family of 5 will be able to create a one night meal with left overs for another night. the 7qt. Red Round Oven is a good gift to pass down to your children when they begin to have a family, like my grandmother did for me.
I would say probably around 5 lbs but I have never actually weighed it. They do get pretty heavy when you have them full, but not so heavy that you can't lift it unless you have an issue with lifting. You could just ladle the contents into containers then pick it up to wash it
A reviewer stated that the weight of this oven makes it inappropriate for use on smooth cooktops. Your product description makes no such reference. Is it safe to se on smooth cooktops?

Best Answer:From a functionality sense the Red Round Oven will work on a glass cooktop. As with any type of cookware you will not want to slide the oven on top of the cooktop as it may scratch the surface.The concern is with the weight of the Red Round Oven when containing the food you are preparing. It may be too heavy for a glass cooktop. You will want to refer to the manufacturer or instruction manual from the manufacturer to see what the weight rating is for your particular cooktop
does sur la table offer a warranty in the inside coating of enamel against chipping? The enamel coating has chipped on other brands I have used, after 6 to 9 months.

I recently received this as a gift. I cook with cast iron (not enameled) all the time, so was surprised what I saw two things in the instructions: 1) don't use with metal instruments, and 2) heat up the pot slowly; don't place it directly on a hot burner. These aren't issues I've experienced with other cast iron. Should I exchange for a non-enameled dutch oven? What is the benefit of enamel? Thanks!
Best Answer:The largest benefit to cast iron is that it can be washed rather than just seasoned. The enamel is sensitive, however to sudden temperature changes. It doesn't cook any differently; it just has a few more restrictions.
