Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
I have been disappointed by much of the modern cookware I have purchased lately, so I thought I would return to the old school stuff my mother used when I was young. I purchased this as a little buddy for my Creuset and could not be happier. It performs in much the same way, I can brown in the dish, simmer and then place in the oven. I use it for curries, pasta sauces, casseroles and even for some slow cooking style recipes. It doesn’t have any screws Or attached handles that wobble over time or surfaces that will peel, it’s not new and revolutionary but that’s exactly why I love it. The lid knob stays cool enough to lift even after being on the gas stovetop boiling away for a long time. I don’t regret this purchase and will be getting another in a different size.
