Besides being beautiful enough to claim a permanent spot on your stovetop, the thoughtful design of this cookware grants it superior function. Coated with enamal, the cast iron cooks food evenly in the oven or on the stove while preventing food flavors from sticking to the surface.

Love this pot
November 24, 2014
I like the way the lid and handle work. The size is perfect because it is quite heavy and would be too heavy if it was any larger. My pot has a stain on the lid from the sauce and I can't get it out. How do you recommend cleaning this so the inside stays white?
Cooks beautifully. Looks beautiful.
The inside porcelain became stained.

I've looking at this pot for years and am so glad to finally own it. Every time I cook a stew or soup, I think, "Darn, wish I could use that Finnish pot" and at last I can.

iittala Sarpaneva Cast Iron Pot
May 24, 2012
I have had the iittala/Sarpaeva pot since the 60's, and now I have two of them, I like it so very much. I only wish there was another larger, wider size, also with the wooden handle. Brilliant! Beautiful! My favorite to use!
The cooking turns out perfectly, every time.
