I WOULD GIVE IT A 5 STAR EXCEPT THAT THE INSIDE HAS STAINED AND I CANNOT GET IT OUT. IT COOKS VERY WELL AND I USE IT ALOT. I BOUGHT THE YELLOW ONE BECAUSE MY KITCHEN IS YELLOW. IT HAS A VERY SMALL CHIP ON THE INSIDE TOP OF THE POT. I HAVE A NEW CERMIC TOP STOVE AND IT WORKS VERY WELL ON IT AND IN THE OVEN ALSO. SO I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN. I BOUGHT IT ON SALE AND I THINK IT IS A VERY GOOD DEAL.
The 7 qt was given to me as a gift and I love it. Be careful if you have quartz countertops, I too have a chipped handle. I do not put it in the dishwasher. It's my first choice for preparing almost everything. Love the red color!
I got my cookware for Christmas and have had no problems with mine. I use them almost 4 times a week. I love them I am searching to get 2 more for my parents for Christmas this year. Great coating easy to clean and look great on the stove oven or on the table.
I bought the 7 quart for a friend. After the first use, the handles began to chip. Obviously, they are inexpensive when compared to Le Crueset or Staub, but the old adage is true- you get what you pay for!
I purchased the white colored Martha Stewart enameled cast iron dutch oven when it was on closeout for 39.99 and I have to say what a deal! I get so much usage out of this thing and it is amazing, I can't imagine paying hundreds for Le Creuset (at this point in time, anyway).
I got my pot for a great price. I use it once a week and I hand wash. My pot has not chipped. There is one tiny dot in the bottom but that does not bother me. I chose the red color and I get compliments when people come over. Love it.
I bought this deeply discounted, so I did not mind when it chipped at the handle after the first use. But after another use, the enamel on the inside started to dissipate. I kept it for a while on my counter but after a few months I decided that no discount is worth keeping this. I sent it back (even though they charged me for return shipping) and ordered myself a Creuset instead. I think the quality of these pots is so low, that Macys should not sell them at all.
I have also had the enamel chip on my Martha Stewart Dutch Oven. I had only used this product 2 times before and while warming some oil I heard a loud POP and looked inside to see a hole about the size of a silver dollar in the white enamel on the inside. I did some research online and had no problem finding other customers with this same problem. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
