I got one of these for a wedding gift from my mom. It has never given me trouble! It is easy to clean (all the beaters and bowls go right in the dishwasher) and there isn't a job it can't handle. It takes up a lot of space on my counter and is very heavy- but it can withstand a lot of abuse!

Paula Deen's My First Cookbook
Paula Deen's My First Cookbook : In her first cookbook for children, bestselling author and Food Network star Deen introduces the basics of cooking to children, with easy-to-follow recipes, safety tips, a few lessons in good manners, and a whole lot of fun. Spiral-bound. Full color.
I found this book to have recipes that were both appealing to children and easy enough for them to really be involved in most of the work. This book wouldn't work if you want your child/grandchild to make an entire meal, but it really is great for side dishes, drinks and snacks for when they have guests over.

The only negative things I can think to say about this pan is that it is really expensive and really heavy. Having said that- you get what you pay for. This dutch oven is extremely well made and will last you your whole life (and longer)! It cooks evenly and cleans up easily. It's worth the expense!
