It’s designed for (*takes huge breath*): boiling, crisping, baking, braising, roasting, steaming, straining, pouring, serving, and storing!
I have this pot at home, and the first thing I noticed about it (aside from its pretty looks) was how shockingly light it was (less than five pounds with the lid!). As a 5-foot-tall weakling, I tend to get nervous whenever I have to lift a cast iron Dutch oven more than a few inches, so I was thrilled when I realized I’d be able to make my favorite hearty meals without the risk of dropping a heavy, piping hot cooking vessel. Plus, it comes with a steamer insert and a wooden spoon with — get this — little grooves that allow it to rest right on the pot’s handle, so if you’re anything like me and *still* haven’t gotten around to getting a spoon rest, this bb’s got you covered. Best of all, if you’re short on cabinet space, this pot is so beautiful you’ll want to display it on your stove for all to admire.
Promising review: “Love it, in particular the color, weight and functionality. I’ve been using it weekly to do a rotisserie-style chicken in the oven (amongst using it for other recipes) and it literally is perfect. My only problem — can I justify buying other colors, maybe one for each day of the week??” —Amy T.
