I purchased this in the dark blue color maybe a month ago so I can't speak to the long wear of the product but, as of right now, it has been working great thus far. I was concerned about the size being that it's 3.75 qt but that's actually still very large and definitely large enough for creating meals for 2-4 people.
I'm also pleasantly surprised by the lid of this item. It really does work to keep the items you are cooking moist! And, additionally, I really appreciate that the interior bowl is black as opposed to the white you might see for competitor's products.
I purchased this item discounted so it was a really great deal but I would definitely consider buying a larger version of this down the road should I need to cook in larger batches. This is definitely a high-quality good and I'm happy I made the investment.
