For anyone interested, this is a good deal on a great dutch oven! If I didn’t have one already or needed another, I’d be all over this. I’ve had a green one for at least 8 years and use it constantly. Still looks like new outside w/minor staining inside. The handle comes “oven-ready” and will withstand 500°. I use it in a 500° oven all the time to bake my “no-knead” bread. It’s the perfect size for that.
Thank you Willyone. How did you know my exact questions? Now I see why you say you are better than everyone else. LOL So maybe I will purchase. Some people have complained the paint comes off the outside too frequently. Any idea if you can use it on glass top stoves?
