I've never had a Braiser and am *really* happy with how this cooks! While it's hefty, especially when full, I find it's not so much that I have trouble lifting. I browned beef on the stovetop in this and then stirred in the remaining ingredients, popped the lid on, and cooked in the oven at 300° for three hours. The beef dish cooked down beautifully... and was delicious. I found cleanup to be very easy, I filled it with water and let sit till after dinner..everything came off easily without scrubbing. I've not had any chipped enamel yet, but I do handle this Braiser carefully and always make sure to utilize the rubber protection tabs that shipped with this pan. Well worth every penny.
