Had a few individual pieces of enameled cast iron and loved them for oven roasting (they will be passed on). The price on this set was excellent. High quality as expected. Very even heating on the range top for good heat control.

Great cookware, even temperature distribution, rugged finish, and easy cleaning. On the expensive side, but sometimes, you get what you pay for. This will probably be the LAST cookware I ever buy.
