    Hazard: The enamel coating on the cast iron casseroles can crack or break during use. This can cause the enamel to crack and fly off as a projectile, posing a risk of laceration or burn hazard to the user or bystanders.

    Incidents/Injuries: Macy's has received two reports of the enamel cracking and flying off of the casseroles during use. No injuries have been reported.

    Thanks riverwalk!!

    How the enamel "flies off" is beyond my imagination..........

    1. Thank you riverwalk for the Heads up on this. My sister in law has one of these so I will let her know. ..... Thanks again!

      1. Thank you for posting this. I have 2 of these in 5.5 and 2.75. I'm so bummed to have to return them because I love them, but I'd hate for the enamel to crack while I'm cooking something. I guess I should spend the bucks to get the good stuff.

        1. Yikes! Thank you so much. I have one of these, I got it as a gift last Christmas. I'll have to find a Macy's to bring it back to.

          1. just had to return to Macy's the two I got as gifts. Got the "average" price on them, which was well below sticker price. Walked away with about $90 for store credit. I'm incredibly frustrated with their return policy.

              They give you store credit? Ugh. I was planning on getting a Staub as a replacement. I have a 5.5 qt one with a $109 sticker price. I've got a feeling that I'm gonna get screwed.

                If you have the receipt you will get full credit.

                  I don't have the receipt as it was a gift, but I have the box. Maybe that will count for something.

                    Ended up getting $42.00 cash back. Annoyed. Ordered the Staub anyway.
