nice dutch oven
I have several dutch ovens and the Circulon Comtempo 5-Quart Covered Dutch Oven is one of them. I love this dutch oven. It is 5 quarts, so it is large enough to cook a meal for my family of five. It is perfect to put a roast in along with some potatoes, green beans, carrots and onions. It is non stick, so that's a plus. It is kind of heavy, but I consider that a sign of its quality and durability. It isn't thin and flimsy. Which means it will last longer. I like that the lid is shatterproof since I have three children. It also fits tightly, so it won't fall off when you take it out of the oven. The handles are great because they don't get hot, so I do't have to worry about burning myself when I pick it up. It heats evenly and cooks the food perfectly. And it is easy to clean with hot soapy water. I wouldn't recommend that it be put in the dishwasher, I always wash mine by hand. You can make soups in this dutch oven as well as many other dishes. It's a wonderfully handy thing to have in your kitchen and I highly recommend it to anyone.
