    Large enough for a roast

    Large 8.5 qt. dutch oven is great, I'm very happy with it, very easy to clean up I can use it on top of stove or in the oven.I also have the smaller one & use it constantly. I would reccommeny it to anyone.

  2. 5 out of 5 stars.

    Wonderful All-Around Pot

    I bought this initially because I was going to be cooking for a family member's 90th birthday celebration where over 50 people would be attending. I needed the largest dutch oven/pot I could find, and this worked perfectly, shortening the time involved in pre-preparing the main course.

    Since then I have used it for just about anything you can think of - soups, peasant style ratatouille, gumbo, chili, chicken cacciatore, etc. (I prepare large double batches so I can freeze a large amount for later.) And it has worked absolutely perfectly for everything. I used to have to start some dishes in one pan and split the contents at some point in the prep to make the quantity I've needed, but not with this pan because it is so large.

    And as others have commented, for its size, it is exceptionally lightweight. And the clean-up is so easy that it's amazing. Storage can be a consideration because it's so large, but we found a way to make it happen.

    I couldn't recommend this item more highly if you have the need for a large dutch oven or pot.

    Wonderful Dutch oven

    I love this dutch oven....it cooks like a charm and the best thing is it is made right here in the USA.... It's time for all of us to buy from the USA whenever we can or we can kiss our country goodbye..
