Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Awesome I had bought this pot with then intention of perfecting braising meat. My first impressions of this pot was it was light for what I had seen that is a typical dutch oven. I cooked a corn beef brisket as my first meal. The pot heated up quickly on the electric stove. The meat seared beautifully. I through everything in made my stock and put meat in. My oven cooks fast and evaporates whatever liquid in my dishes, low heat or not. This cooked my meal great. Low reduction of the fluids. After 3 and a half hours of braising on 325 degrees, the brisket just fell apart. The clean us was awesome. Nothing stuck to the pot. I soaked the top because the glass had become brown. After soaking for five minutes it came clean easily with a dishwashing brush. Look forward to cooking many meals in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dutch Oven I have a commercial series Calphalon dutch oven that I've had for over 25 years. It was only 5 or 6 quart capacity, and while much thicker than this dutch oven, it has seen it's best days past. I bought this Contemporary 8qt and am nothing short of delighted. I was a little concerned that the metal might be too thin, but I made a fond on medium high heat on an electric stove top that was culinary school grade. It heated evenly and my fond was simply perfect. The big test of this dutch oven was not only the fond, but it needed to braise in the oven for 2 hours @ 300 deg F. It performed like a champ. No hot spots, good sealing, and even distribution of heat. I read the review that said it may create hot spots on a gas stove - I can only imagine that happening on a high BTU (commercial grade) stove top. But, hey, your mileage may vary. I'm very happy with this beautiful and functional addition to my cookware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! My wife and I bought the full line of Calphalon Contemporary stainless cookware for each other for Christmas this past year (2012), and we absolutely love all of the pieces.  This dutch oven is a great size, and i actually use it quite a bit more than I thought I would.  It cleans up easily, and the finish looks as good as new.  I normally hand wash this piece due to its size, but the others get a mix of handwash and dishwasher, depending on my mood.  They all continue to look great and perform at a very high level.
