We've finally broken out our Mario Batali 4-Quart Essential Pot! We made a standard pot roast ( a Tyler Florence recipe), and it turned out completely delicious. Only thing is the 4-Quart size is a little small when it comes to following recipes from the Food Network, as those call for a bigger pot to hold all of the liquid those call for. Very heavy, but also beautiful. Easy to clean, seems to be of really excellent quality.
