Question about Cast Iron

southernitalian | Jan 19, 2011 06:03 AM

So I work for a very generous woman at a very good company. For the holidays, she gave me some points that I can use on a website to purchase any number of items. I've really been wanting an enameled cast iron Dutch oven forever, obviously preferably LC. There is one offered but it doesn't specifiy what brand it is. It's certainly not Le Crueset or Lodge. The description says "4qt. Round Casserole Cobalt it's cast iron cookware with a colorful twist. The bright porcelain enamel surface doesn't need pre-seasoning so you get the heat retention of cast iron. Round casserole with lid - 4 qt.".

My question is, can I assume this can be used on the stovetop and in the over? Any concerns? I know it's technically free but if it's not going to work properly, there are plenty of other things on the site I could choose.

Weigh in folks and TIA.
