Pros: Even heat, easy to clean
Cons: HEAVY, enamal will wear and stain eventually, lid top loosens
This is a great pot for long, slow cooking, and rugged enough for daily use, but is so heavy that I only use it when I need the even heat distribution.
That said, it's a beautiful pot and looks nice sitting on my black stove - and when I do need even steady heat, it's great. It's also great for baking rustic bread quickly in the oven.h
