Anyone of you foodies got one? (A senior they seem to be called atm)
Any good?
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

We have one similar to these, except that ours is green instead of white.  In my view, it is as good as other brands of cast iron cookwares worth 3 or 4 times the price. We regularly use it for making stew, boeuf bourguignon, or any kind of slow cooked food. The bottom is reasonably non-sticky, as long as you don't try to use it as a frying pan.

We have one too.  It's OK, I suppose - but I've not got much to compare it to.  It doesn't catch fire or leak and it's not so big it can't go in the oven.  Does that help? ;D

We have what I suspect is the John Lewis equivalent. It works as well as the "Islington" brands. It's a casserole. The one thing that is imporatnt with these things is to make sure your oven shelves can support the weight of a full one. Our Nisbets one was so big it needed the shelves doubling up to support it, and the sagging still bothered me.
