Pros: Heats Quickly, Non-Stick, Distributes Heat Evenly, Retains Heat, Easy To Clean

Cons: Handle Gets Hot, Heavy / Bulky

Best Uses: Simple Meals, Small Kitchens

Describe Yourself: Avid Cook

I gave this four stars out of five for one reason, size. This multi-pot is an AMAZING concept but lacks an adequate size to be used for a meal for more than one or two people. The lid/skillet is great for one egg or a few scrambled and the pot is the perfect size for smaller sides. I have used this mainly for foods like beans, green beans, corn, rice, pasta. I have not tried this in the oven, but I suspect it would perform well. Overall a great value considering what cast iron retails for in most stores. I hope that World Market will persue carrying one a bit larger for more family sized meals!
