The Only reason I would give it 4 stars and not five is because I love my Lodge Cast Iron Combo Cooker just a little bit more. The combo cooker uses a frying pan for the lid (Lodge only produces these in the 3 qt size) and I wish they made it in a 5 or 6 qt version as well.
Overall, this is a great piece of equipment that will last you more than one hundred years. It's perfect for baking breads and braising meats and cast iron is such a better alternative to other toxic nonstick coatings
This DO quickly became our go-to pot for everything. It has the 'self-basting' spikes in the lid like the high-end Staub DO (something I'm surprised is absent on the Le Crueset and SLT DOs).
I can't quite figure out people's surprise at how 'sturdy' it is for the price... The cast iron itself has the least impact on the price. It's the enamel process that's time-and labor-intensive, not to mention there are high import duties on French goods to the US.
Lodge has cookbooks dedicated to cast-iron skillet and DO cooking that really stretches what you think a DO can do! We love Lodge!
NOTE ON SEASONING:
The non-stick function of the ""seasoning"" is easy to maintain. Avoid washing with any kind of soap. Use nylon scrubbers; air-dry thoroughly before putting on the lid, and remember to lightly wipe insides with veg oil before storing.
Frying and cooking with meats, bacon, meat broth, and butter naturally facilitate maintenance of the seasoning, the way a grill builds up a patina.
If you have an difficult crusted on gunk, fill and soak with plain warm water to loosen the debris. If you really must wash with soap, just remember to re-season by oiling and then baking empty at high heat to allow the oil to penetrate and re-seal the cast iron
