The heavy iron ensures slow, even cooking both on the stove and in the oven. Enamel surface guarantees easy cleaning and that no flavours stick to the pot. The ingenious curved wooden handle lets one lift the entire pot to the table or only the lid without burning one’s fingers. Makes a truly thoughtful gift.
