CLASSIC FINNISH ELEGANCE AND STRENGTH

This is probably the greatest of oven top to stove to table casseroles. Cast iron ensures the quality of cooking. The stroke of genius is the detachable wooden handle which serves to lift both lid and pot. Designed back in the 60s, it will never ever become redundant. As all cast iron products are, this is a heavy pot, but that is of minor importance. Design and use doesn't get better than Timo Sarpaneva.
Great cooking pot.

Love the newest Cast Iron Pot
Dot from San Diego– Verified Buyer
I like cast iron cooking appliances -- and just love this newest addition. It is great for stews and soups -- and I even used it when making a large amount of a white sauce. the heat is so very even. Cleaning is a snap with little more that a quick swish with a sponge.
