This high-quality enameled interior makes it easy to clean. Oils from cooking naturally penetrate its pores, creating a smooth, natural, non-stick surface. No need to season! This makes it ideal for slow cooking tender meats and casseroles. The enameled red ceramic exterior finish is not only beautiful, it’s also completely chip-resistant and highly durable, complete with a stainless steel knob. Unlike regular cast iron, it will not rust or discolor with time, use, or water.
