I agree with this for sure. I use my enamel coated one inside all the time. It's especially useful for dishes where you want to get a good sear over the burner and then finish it in the oven without transferring pots and losing all the tasty bits in the pan from the searing.

I like to do chicken thighs in mine - I can get a good sear on the skin, and then finish it off in the oven with some garlic, onions and tomatoes (or anything, really) tossed over the top.

Here's an example from my family-friendly cooking blog:

I don't have an uncoated one, myself, but I think I'd get one if I planned to use it outdoors...
