Can I use a Dutch oven to make Bolognese?

I'm wondering of there is a down side to using an enamelled Dutch oven to make a Bolognese instead of a stainless steel one? I'm more then happy with the results of the stainless steel pot but apart from boiling large batches of pasta and potatoes (rarely) it seems to be the only time I use the pot and I am thinking about just investing in a good Dutch oven instead.

Also can a Dutch oven be used to boil pasta and potatoes easily or does it take a long time to bring the water to the boil?

Cheers :-)
