    Pros - Solid construction, very sturdy
    Cons - Must be careful not to drop!
     I had wanted the le creuset version of this pot for the longest time but the cost was always an issue. Mario Batali released this line and the price was right so I got one for Christmas. The handles on the sides could be a bit bigger in my opinion but that is minor. The pot is a solid build and distributes the heat very well. I think it performs just as well as a le creuset (finally got one to compare to as a gift (from the mods (thanks guys))). 

    The underside of the lid has the self basting spikes which is nice but often I did not feel like I needed them. Many times when I am doing a braise I cover the pot with parchment paper and then put the lid on so the spikes don't matter. It would be great if you had a choice on the lid type (spikes or not). Definitely not a deal breaker just a nice to have.

    Great pot to have in your kitchen.
