I couldn't be happier with this particular purchase! I am an avid user of cast iron and I have several very old pieces that work as well as any new product. This particular cast iron dutch oven says that it comes preseasoned, and it was absolutely true! Some places say they are, but I haven't made the purchase because I could see that they weren't. Truthfully, I wasn't very hopeful that this one would be seasoned right, since I've never made a purchase like this without actually seeing it with my own two eyes. I'm glad I went for it.
The bail handle makes it MUCH easier to lift, as it IS a very heavy pot, so be advised of this, especially if you have any type of recurring joint pain.
One thing I will note, that I didn't even expect (because I've never had an iron dutch oven before) - the lid that comes with it keeps most things from boiling over! I hadn't given it any thought at all before purchasing, but the lid is so heavy, that it keeps items that usually boil over from doing that.
I told both my children, this is the beginning of a legacy! I highly recommend this!
