HAs anyone tried Revol Revolution ceramic oven ?


I'd like to know if someone knows the Revolution dutch oven. It's made out of a high tech ceramic by the french maker Revol.
The product description on amazon is almost too good to be true:

"Delicious meals start with incredible cookware. Revolution is a line of cookware and bake-ware that is unlike anything on the market today. Revolution can be used in the oven, the microwave or on gas or induction cook-tops it will be the only line of cookware and bake-ware you will ever need. The gorgeous 10-inch round cocotte is perfect for roasting and braising, simmering soups or baking casseroles, quiche, or desserts. the possibilities are endless. These cocottes are oven and broiler-safe to 572-degree fahrenheit. They are freezer and dishwasher safe. Revolution cookware contains no metal so it perfect for healthy-cooking. Each piece is made of 100-percent non-porous culinary ceramic which is environmentally safe and 100-percent recyclable. The entire revolution line is thermal-shock resistant allowing them to go from oven to freezer without fear of damage and is ultra-durable ensuring that the cocotte won't crack, chip or peel. The interior's glaze makes for effortless non-stick cooking, reducing the need for fats and oils. The non-porous surface makes for easy cleaning, and ensures that oils, fats and bacteria are not absorbed. The tight-fitting lid helps seal in flavors and juices. with a wide range of cheerful colors, revolution makes a handsome addition to any kitchen's decor. What would you call a line of cookware that goes from oven to freezer, cook-top to microwave, and is dishwasher safe? Revolutionary. "

If it's as long lasting as it sounds, it could be an interesting alternative to cast iron (although it's just as expensive as Le Creuset).

Any feedback on it ?

  1. Is it important to you that it's induction compatible? If not, then you might want to look at Emile Henry as well.

    RR was released only last year I believe. I got the smallest one. Not much I can say to be honest - it's not broken yet LOL. I'd be browning stuff and pour wine that came straight out from the fridge - pass. Putting cubes of frozen stock into the pot with a little simmering liquid at the bottom - pass. Whether it will last for another 10 years - I don't know.

    I love love love the lid handle, it was never hot. The induction film at the bottom of the pot is now slightly discolored though.

    I bought it because it's lightweight, dishwasher safe, induction compatible.

    EH on the other hand is a lot cheaper. My mom has one and she seems to love it. Some people here said theirs started to develop cracks after a while.

      Hi, thank you for your answer.
      Yes it's important for me that it's induction compatible, good in the oven and durable. Basically, I would like to know if it can replace a cast iron french oven.
      But I just saw the other discussion about this product.
