It works well for a wide variety of things: browning, sauces, searing, slow cooking. The size allowed us to easily sear a half beef tenderloin for our beef wellington.
We used it last night for homemade spaghetti and mozzarella stuffed meatballs. The color is gorgeous plus it makes a great serving dish!
I always thought Le Creuset was too pricey, but now that I have this and the cast iron skillet in burgundy...I'm hooked. (I am glad we received it as a gift, but if I knew what I do now when I was single...I would have made a point to put money aside every month to save up for one).
It does take a bit to get used too at first. We have a gas stove and I use this on lower settings. This is just as easy to clean as a non-stick pan. I love the cast iron skillet and braiser so much, I now put a 7 qt. dutch oven on our wedding registry in Rosemary.
The only con of the braiser is finding a spot for it in the cabinet...it sat on the range for a couple weeks till I rearranged my pots & pans cabinet. Don't just buy this because it's pretty, buy it because it awesome to cook with and it's pretty :)

If that's too heavy for you, you can always put the pot in the oven(carefully) first, then add the lid.
That's what I do.
