The product is good. I unfortunately did not read the info on the pot. The lid is not included in the purchase and that is on me. But why would not the lid be included? Also, and again this may be because I did not read the information regarding the lid - it is only good up to 350 degrees, which I did not know till I got the lid and read the directions - my plan was to use the pot with the lid in a 400 degree+ oven. Shoppers read ALL the info.
