Cast Iron Too Pudgy/Kludgy?

Is your kitchen sagging under metric tons of pretty cast iron? Are the carefully curated, meticulously color-matched dreadnoughts bowing you shelves and back? Do you rationalize to yourself and your chiropractor that you use your goose pot as a kettlebell?

Well, GreenPan has an answer: its "SimmerLite" painted cast aluminum, nonstick (!), induction-ready Dutch ovens. Supposedly oven friendly to 600F. The 4.5Q and cover are a bantamweight 4 pounds. No christeras, but yes, "self-basting" rings.

Interesting to me is the induction bottom, which appears to be created by spraying molten iron onto the casting, a la Mazzetti.
