I have one and have used it several times with far better results cooking grains with it, than with just the PC. I have also used it for cooking the steamed puddings and Boston brown bread recipes in the Sass book, and it worked there too beautifully - far better than the foil handle method (sadly, we didn't like those recipes much though, but that doesn't mean we won't use it again for a other similar recipes.)

That said, as beautiful as the pot is and as much as I like bringing it to the table, I have stopped using it. Cooking grains takes less time (according to the directions that came with the ohsawa pot, and also my experience) and less water in my regular ol' pot on the stove. And since I have electric burners, it is also easier to use a regular pot when cooking simple grains because I don't have to dance between two burners. So I have gone back to a pot on the stove for all rice and other grains - which I cook almost every day. And, finally, we learned we just prefer regular oven-baked cakes to steamed puddings any day here in our family (your results may vary). Sorry, I know there are die-hard PC lovers, but I am not yet among them after something like 45 uses. I'll keep trying..

Actually I put the ohsawa pot in a lit, glass cabinet where it looks beautiful. People have commented on it, even. I can also see myself using it as a serving piece even if I didn't cook with it. I'm not upset I got it at all. I got the medium sized one, and it worked for all the recipes I mentioned.
