it's not a lodge, which seems to be the benchmark for these things, but it works wonderfully. the legs are taller than most cheaper brands so the coals fit under perfectly, the lip on the lid is fairly high helping to keep the ash out of the food. the handle does NOT have the little bump in it that makes hanging the oven over a fire easier, but that is a low level inconvenience. DO NOT TRUST THE PRESEASONING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it says you can open teh box and cook in it, but it's going to smoke like a banshee the 1st time you add heat, I can only imagine what that would taste like, I burned the oven off, even took the lid off and let the inside smoke out as well, once it stopped smoking I then oiled the oven down and used it as normal. you are hard pressed to find anything this cheep at this quality out there, there is one site that does lodge pretty cheap, but even there you will be spending another $15 on the oven then $50 for shipping.
