And longevity too. It is possible to damage a cast iron pan by dropping it, but it has to be fairly severe to do so, such that it will actually crack the metal, whereas even thicker aluminium will flex much more easily and tend to chip or flake the enamel.
Yes true, longevity is also better, but in the end it's the cooking results that matter most to me and the difference between Alu and iron is significant.

By the way you mentioned you had a Denby... I like mine but after a year the exterior paint has chipped in a couple of places on the pot and lid (it's never been dropped or abused, no idea how it got them). Enamel is intact but scratched/marked.

All superficial though, it still works like a charm and for 80chf I am happy with it.
