Komin Dutch Oven with Lid

Japanese industrial designer Komin Yamada takes cast-iron cookware to an innovative new level with a sleek, lightweight Dutch oven that's exceptionally responsive to heat. Use this beautiful pot for everything from braising chicken or pot roast to slow-simmering big batches of soups, stews or chili. With all the heat-retaining qualities of a heavier, more traditional cast iron piece, this surprisingly lightweight and easy-to-handle cast-iron pot heats up rapidly, transfers heat uniformly and responds quickly to changes in cooking temperature. Sleek, modern design is perfect for kitchen-to-dining-table presentation. Cast iron with nonreactive black matte silicon coating. Extra-wide loop handles are easy to grasp, even when you're wearing bulky oven mitts. Designed by world-renowned Japanese industrial designer, Komin Yamada. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction. Lid can also be used as trivet or strainer. 9 1/2" diam., 4 3/4" high; 5-qt. cap.; 4 lb. 6 oz. Crafted in Niigata, Japan, a region long famous for its fine ironwork.

Komin Cast Iron Is A Superb Heat Conductor
August 31, 2013
I got the dutch oven because I love the fry pan. I cook on a nasty tiny electric apartment stove. For first time use I cooked Cannellini beans, and achieved, for the very first time on this stove, a true simmer. The lid is unwieldy, but it really creates a seal, and because there's no vent and it's not made of glass, you can't see a boilover coming. You definitely need a potholder to open the lid. I wouldn't change the lid, though, but an optional glass lid would be nice.
Pros: Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Size, Shape, Design, Weight, cooks really well.
