I use it at a private residence. When I saw it, I was surprised that it was smaller than I thought. However, when cooking such as curry etc., the capacity was large surprisingly, so much cooking was able to be made a lot more than the pot which I had until now. (Up to now, I made it with big pan and two large frying pans.) But it was a bit difficult to use like a frying pan as it was burnt when I sauted the ingredients with a high heat. Even so, I thought that I bought a little less, such as scorching of warming (less than a normal pot). Thank you very much.
