Very disappointed--I bought the one with the speedometer but it doesn't cook fast at all!
I will stick with Le Cruset I don't like Staub for the same reason, I want light enamel on the inside so that I can see how a fond is developing better.

Yeah, I don't disturb the protein, but around the sides I can see the fond development, on a light colored enamel it is MUCH easier.

What's up with all you people calling MEAT protein?!!! Or were you talking about Sea Plankton?
There's nothing special here; if you're not going to buy Le Creuset or Staub, you may as well buy Lodge and save a heap of time and money.

Having multiple Le Creuset and Staub pieces I am looking forward to trying out this Combekk Dutch oven. At almost half the price of a comparably sized Le Creuset oven, this is a steal for the quality Combekk brings to the table. See the review at the link below. https://www.everythingkitchens.com/best-cast-iron-dutch-ovens-le-creuset-staub-combekk-review.html

I did check out video; I remain unconvinced— but thanks for the link!
Is it ok to use metal utensils on the interior of this pot, or will the enamel scratch and chip?

You can use Metal utensils but we would recommend using wood, silicone or nylon. The Enamel will last longer
Solid and heavy, built like a tank. Cooking surface holding up ok so far.
Love me a good dutch oven.
74 Dollar shipping to Germany, thx but i'll pass on that.
Just got the shipping notification. Really looking forward to seeing if the oven lives up to expectations.

To reply to my own comment, the Dutch oven arrived very nicely packaged in a purpose-made cardboard box. It looks and feels great - it is certainly a solid chunk of iron. The green finish is a slightly lighter shade than I was expecting, but still looks good. The enamel coat looks smooth and uniform. I'm giving it as a Christmas gift, so no info on how well it functions until Dec 26th or thereabouts. It certainly looks and feels the part, in case anyone is sitting on the fence about this item. I'd be interested to hear how other members from the initial drop have found it performs?

Continuing the conversation with myself, the Combekk has now been in action a month. I don't have previous experience with a high-end cast-iron dish like this, but have found it to be great. It was hijacked by a Thai relative for stovetop curries and noodle dishes, and has been used in the oven for casseroles and stews. It has a dead flat bottom for sauteing, holds a decent volume, retains heat well before serving, and cleans easily. As you'd expect from any good casserole, meat comes out tender and moist. So far there have been no chips or cracks in the enamel, despite being shipped halfway around the world and subject to some vigorous handling around the stove. Others in the kitchen have commented on the weight of the dish. Given it's made of recycled train tracks, I figure a bit of heft is exactly what you should expect. Count me as a very happy customer.
Volume? Quarts liters?
Does anyone know the weight of the 11" pan? I'm picking this could come with an impressive shipping cost for those of us living in more remote corners of the earth.

Thanks for the help, kstokley. Still finding my way around the site.

Also, to answer your original question the 11" is 11.88lbs (5.4kg)
genuinely curious. what makes this better than a 40 dollar lodge enamaled dutch oven

I own 2 lodge dutch ovens, non-enameled, and don't have a very rounded bottom, but it looks like the enameled is rounder. The products are technically different as I got an enameled one as a gift and the enameling is done in China, while the core cast iron is made in america. According to a The SweetHome http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-dutch-oven/ they preferred the roundness.

Yeah your mileage may vary. I bought based on that review amd it just isn't perfect for my uses, especially when compared to a Le Creuset. Even in that review they note towards the bottom that the only real knock on the Lodge is the smaller cooking surface due to the rounded bottom.
Wish the dark grey was an option!
I had a poll for Dutch ovens months ago with thousands of votes. Good to see massdrop not take any of the community data or opinions when choosing products. This site is really letting me down lately.
I'd be more interested if they came in a 9 quart size. That's not the fault of Massdrop, of course, merely a comment.
Is the thermometer only in celsius as shown in the photo?
Is this covered by the Combekk 40-year warranty? (Of course, that all depends upon whether or not they will still be around in 40 years)
It would be nice if the sizes were given in the volume of the pans, not the size. I don't have a dutch oven for comparison right now.

According to other sites 9" = 4-1/4 quarts 11" = 6-1/2 quarts
LeCrueset slick white interior finish sticks more when browning/searing etc. If this black Matt interior performs anything like the Staub black Matt interior it will be a dream. In Europe Staub is preferred over LC. Note LC has recently copied the Staub interior, maybe Staub patent is up.

I don't have any of that issue with my 5q LeCreuset. I've used mine for many years and it cleans up easily. I usually use it to brown the roast before I add in the rest of the ingredients.

Disappointed with this one
Why would I get one of these instead of a vintage cast iron or a Le Creuset?
Daaa
A comparable Le Creuset is $300. If you can find a nice vintage one for this price in good condition you should jump on it, but these look very nice for the money and as they are a newer company Massdrop can negotiate a better deal unlike Le Creusets which never really go on sale.
