The large browning surface and shallow profile make this just the thing for dishes that involve browning meat or chicken, and then pouring on a sauce to slowly simmer and concentrate. The heavy lid makes the pot perfect for slow, wet, braising of tough cuts of meat like back ribs - once the dish is done the pan goes right onto the stovetop to deglaze. Jambalaya turns out beautifully: sweat some onions, celery, and peppers over low heat, brown some sausage or smoked meat, and pour in the rice and liquid - the heavy lid does wonders for the rice, and once the dish is done the whole thing can be brought to the table to serve from.
The only drawback to this pot is that you can't carve in it - slicing up a brisket or corned beef would risk trashing the enamel. The weight is also impressive - with the lid this pot is almost 13 pounds, which may be more than some cooks can handle.
