Le Creuset Dutch Oven White With Gold Knob
Dutch ovens are one of the most versatile pieces of cookware you can own. Not only can they be used for searing and grilling, but also slow braising and simmering – Dutch ovens also make an elegant serving dish!
When selecting a dutch oven, there are many factors to take into account – size, shape and material – but price should always be your top priority.
Le Creuset has been around for years and is known for their high-quality cookware. Their collection offers a wide range of colors and designs so that you can find the ideal pot to match your kitchen decor.
Cuisinart is a well-known brand in cast iron cookware, and their enameled Dutch ovens make excellent budgetary options. They perform just as well as higher-end items from Le Creuset or Staub at half the cost.
Cuisinart Dutch ovens come in a range of shapes and sizes, so there’s sure to be one that meets your requirements. Choose from round or oval models as well as specialty shapes like pumpkins or hearts for even more versatility.
For a timeless classic design that will last the test of time, this Le Creuset 5-quart Dutch oven is your best bet. The enamel coating helps prevent chipping and ensures it has a nonstick surface so cleaning after use is simple.
This Le Creuset lid boasts a stainless steel knob and can withstand temperatures up to 500oF. Its slightly textured stem provides a secure grip when using an oven mitt for picking it up.
This pot has a tight lid that collects moisture in the pot, which then showers back over your food for an effective self-basting effect – ideal when cooking poultry or fish.
Its handles are looped and slightly larger than those on the Cuisinart, making them easier to hold with both hands. Furthermore, their wide design helps you take your Dutch oven out without burning your fingers on its hot handle.
