I bought it yesterday at WS in Tampa FL for 69.99. Not sure what to do with it but the 4 bowls themselves seemed worth the money. Went to Technique Class today and asked Chef about it. He advised me to use the cooking piece as ovenware since the bottom is so small in diameter. He said that it was suitable for any type of stew and to plan on cooking it n the oven for about twice as long as on the stovetop. I am fortunate to have a large kitchen with lots of storage and it is almost a piece of art so I was happy with the purchase at the discounted price. If I did not have the "real estate" I too would pass. It is definitely a limited piece.
