Great size and weight
Love this dutch oven--I even have two of them. I use them for making oatmeal, heating up frozen soups, sauces, and bread. Love that's it;s not too heavy to maneuver. Have two of them so I can make a loaf of bread in one and heat up left-over soup in the other.

Not All It Cracked Up To Be. You Get What You Pay For.
I couldnot wait for this to arrive but it is very disappointing. Hard to clean. Easily stains. I do not understand all the rave reviews through which I based my purchase decision.

Enamel color not even, plus my lid came with a big chip and several small chips, I'm very careful with it, but the edges look thin and fragile, more chips are probable. Edges on pot and lid are "bare" cast iron, not matte enamel/ceramc of other manufacturers, so you need to apply oil or expect rusting (fingerless of rust run down inside the pot in some cooking applications).

It is a nice size. Lighter weight for the thinner cast iron. But, you get what you pay for. I am working with this, trying to get this to work. I'm leaning toward returning this and saving up for one was th easier cleaning.

Best ever purchase!
This was the best purchase ever, have a knock off for at least 15 years and received a very expe sive le cuesuet oval dutch oven several years ago. Of course, i could not afford to buy the 5 qrt of that brand. Both of mine were very heavy. But this new oven is now my go too. Totally a first class light weith dream pot! Highly recommend! Best part, got it in a flash sale!

Beautiful Blue Color, Great Price
I have only used this Dutch Oven once so far- for baking bread.
I was concerned about putting it in the oven at 500 degrees, but it was perfectly fine! This is a lighter weight, beautiful piece that I'm sure will last for many years to come.

Beautiful and practical
This Dutch oven is the perfect size for small to medium dishes. I bought the blue version, and the color is a beautiful, rich, deep navy - attractive enough for table service. The price is incredible for a piece this good.

Light weight cast iron pot
I highly recommend the Sur La Table light weight cast iron pot. I used it for making soups and stews and fried onions and sautéed vegetables and the pot was very easy to clean. It is just heavy enough to create delicious meals and light enough that I don't think twice about lifting it from the bottom cabinet and using it.

Lightweight Cast iron oven
We are just beginning to see the functionality in this dutch oven. it is, indeed, light weight compared to most cast iron products. The finish is not even and we actually returned the first to arrive due to patches with exposed cast iron where the porcelain coating had been either improperly applied or chipped off. We are watching for this. So far it appears easy to clean. We are wary of the handles as they are as hot as the pot and we are also working out what to put it on that will stop it from sliding around the table but still allow for passing. Any ideas?

Have used it a number of times to make breakfast casseroles and made a great stew.

It preformed as well as my long time very heavy 5 qt
I've used the new Dutch Oven three times and I'm very well pleased with the results. It's roughly 40% lighter than my old 5 qt which is still serviceable but when filled with a chuck eye roast and root vegetables is very difficult getting in and out of a conventional oven. An excellent value and a significant improvement over the heavier Dutch Oven.

I'm well pleased.

Very versatile
I liked mine so much, I bought 2 more for my daughters. It's heavy duty enough for roasts, soups & stews.

Is it Made in China?
LING WEN H on Dec 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is.
How much does the 5Qt. weigh?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is not light, but not heavy for cast iron of this size.
I just got mine and weighed it on a digital and old spring kitchen scale.
Lid = 2 lbs & 3.5 oz.
Pot = 5 lbs & 12 oz.
Together = 8 lbs.
Can you use this on a gas range (vs. an electric flat top range) with direct flame?
Robyn K on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can, but you must use it on low so the flames don't touch the sides of the pan.
How long is the limited life warranty for?
James M on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's for as long as you own the pan, but it only covers manufacturer's issues, not misuse or owner error.
Can this be used on flat top ranges?
Michelle S on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can.
Does the inside of the lid have bumps on it like the more expensive brands?
Judith B on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No bumps. But cooks just as good as the expensive Le Crueset, so not even an issue.
Can it be used to bake breads?
Paula P on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it sure can. I have used it for virtually everything that I used my Druware cast-iron on for the last 30 years. It cooks just as well, but it won't hold foods hot for as long on the table as it's heavier Dutch cousin. But at half the weight and a fraction of the cost, it is a great value.
Can you put the entire Dutch Oven into the oven? Up to what temperature?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Manufacturers specs state oven safe to 500 degrees
Can this Dutch oven be used for deep frying?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes I can- I made delicious fried chicken- I send peanut oil. My pot maintained even heating throughout and I cleaned it with Dawn Platinum
Is it easy to clean ?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, very easy to clean. Just let it soak in hot soapy water first and it comes right off. No strenuous scrubbing required.
Will it fit an entire chicken?
A shopper on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I haven't cooked a whole chicken so I can't say for certain, but I don't think it would fit. It would have to be a pretty small chicken.
Can you use this with induction cooktops?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased one and I have induction. It cooks so well I'm now shopping for their bigger 8qt. size with grill pan lid. The blue is beautiful.
is it lead & cadmium free? If it is, I will buy 2!
Linda Lee on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is.
Is it safe to store cooked food in this pot in the refrig once the pot cools?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have stored food in it in fridge with no ill effects. It was a beef stew wuth lots of leftovers. I kept the pot in fridge 4 days till food was gone.
Recipe says to preheat the empty dutch oven for 30 minutes before putting bread dough in. Can this dutch oven be pre-heated in 425 degree oven for that time - empty?
RETA H on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sure--do it all the time--even hotter than 425.
Oven safe to what degree?

Could you use this in a campfire if you don't have an oven?
CONNIE S on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've used it on a gas bbq many times. I do wrap the bottom part of the pot with foil for easier cleaning as I like to retain the original look for displaying in the kitchen
Would this be good for Indian dish called Biriyani...rice and meat slow cooked in steam?
Sonali B on Oct 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe so, I have never prepared Biriyani but looking the recipes on line, I do not see why it cannot be prepared in this vessel- this vessel heats very evenly and can be used on stovetop and in the oven- hope this helps
what is the name of the brand? Where is the product made?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought this for a Christmas gift for the upcoming Christmas season. As far as I know it is part of the Sur La Table cookware and it looks like a good quality piece. I have not looked to see where it is made. I'm sure Sur La Table could tell you.
How much does this pot weigh with the lid?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The shipping weight of the product is 11.9 lbs.
Would your 5QT lightweight cast iron dutch oven lid fit this 8QT unit interchangeably with the grille lid?
Loan P on Jan 11, 2017
Sur La Table Lightweight Cast Iron Dutch Oven, 5 qt.
Sur La Table Lightweight Cast Iron Dutch Oven, 5 qt.
Cast Iron Casserole With Grill Pan Lid, 8 qt.
Cast Iron Casserole With Grill Pan Lid, 8 qt.
BEST ANSWER: You know I am not sure but possibly the measurements are on the site and you can tell from that. I know I own the 8 quart one and I ABSOLUTELY love it!! I love the fact that I can use the lid as a grill pan (and have done it) and also it's profile is sort of vertical so it fits nicely on the stove around other pans. I couldnt' believe it was 8 quarts at first and had to pour water from my 6 quart one in there to believe it! I was surprised to find out it WAS indeed a full 8 quart without looking like this MASSIVE pot! SUPER happy with it.
What is the outer diameter of the base?
Michelle H on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Outer base is 8.5". I have this pot and love it - great value.
