It's just the right size for a number of tasks; and its good looks , even heat distribution, and reasonably easy cleanup put it over the top.

Good heavy pot
September 2, 2015
This pot is a very good size for most soups, stews, vegetables, etc. it is heavy cast iron coated with white ceramic on the inside, giving a very good distribution of heat for good cooking. It is beautiful as well, with the clever use of the wood for a handle and lever to remove the cover.
Beautiful pot with great cooking for many complex dishes
Made in China, based on the original which was made in Finland. Hope it lasts as long as the Finnish one!

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.

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.
