I bought one of these 5 years ago for church potlucks. The convenient sealing lid and large oval pot ( I once fit 2 farm raised ducks in it.) is why I chose it. I love it so much that I bought another for one of my best friends for Christmas. She, too, loves hers. The only downside is that I wish the ceramic pot were easier to clean to a full sparkle.
Hard to find 7qt size with travel features. Great flip top option to simplify serving and portability. Great product at a great price from a great American company. Buy this 1.
