I used my 7qt dutch oven to make black bean soup. I cooked the beans first for over 2 hours. Then, I cooked the other soup ingredients for over an hour. It works great...no interior staining and the pot keeps soup warm for hours after I've finished cooking. Also, the enamel coloring looks great on the table; makes for very pretty serve-ware.
This size Dutch oven is perfect: Large enough to feed 6-8 people, but not so huge that it's impossible to lift. It's heavy, though: But the weight = quality and even heating! Staub pots are gorgeous to look at and a joy to use. I've gotten rid of my Le Creuset in favor of Staub pots. They're better in so many ways: black interior (also enameled - not raw cast iron!) performs perfectly and is a dream to clean after a quick soak; the basting spikes inside the lid; searing is excellent...and more. These are investment pieces that will get handed down, and are worth every penny (they even have a slightly lower price point than Le Creuset!). Katom's prices are currently the best available anywhwere, especially with free shipping!
