Product DescriptionSoup, risotto and polenta are true comfort foods in Italian cooking. They are generally served as the first course along with pastas. This beautiful 4 Qt. Risotto Pan and Saucier, made of sturdy cast iron and finished with enamel, is not only the perfect vessel for cooking a hearty risotto or pasta sauce, but also makes a wonderful centerpiece when presented at the table. With each order, comes a sampling of wonderful Italian recipes from my cookbook "Molto Italiano" to help you make perfect Risotto.

I got this pan in penne (ugly yellow, but it's growing on me) while it was deeply discounted. I would have liked to get a 4-6 qt dutch oven from Staub, Le Creuset or even Batali but this was relatively free.
I like the brushed brass look of the knob on the lid better than either the plastic Le Creuset or the chrome Staub. The enamel on the penne seems somewhat matte as opposed to glossy. Some may prefer this but some may think it looks cheap/unfinished. The interior enamel looks like on the Le Creuset (glossy white). One serious complaint I have is that this pan did not sit flat fresh out of the box. For glass top stoves this means uneven heating. For this reason I rated it only two stars on a scale where Le Creuset is 4 and Staub is 5. If it didn't wobble I'd give it 3.5 stars.
