LC is definitely kitchen jewelry, but I personally still appreciate the classic look. There’s something about knowing I’m using the same style pot Julia Child did that I love. And, I enjoy all the pretty colors too. This size is a little smaller than my go to 5.5qt, but it’s fine for smaller roasts, beans, soups, and rice. I do usually recommend to buy the larger size since you can cook less in a large pot, but not more in a small pot. I like enameled cast iron for its non reactive properties, works great on my induction range, and, some Scrub Daddy Power Paste keeps my pots clean without TOO much elbow grease.
