Well I finally did it!
After my 1 qt Cuisinart SS NS began to flake, I went and bout the LC 1.25 qt, enameled. Even as an owner of several larger LC pieces, I was somewhat convinced I was paying for the name. Well, I was wrong. This little pot is amazing. I have done several things from cooking soup, oatmeal, sauce; it may be the perfect cooking utensil. The heat is so even that no stirring is necessary, and there is no hint of scorching.
