Enameled Cast-Iron Dutch Oven

Why It’s Great: A heavy but all-purpose piece of cookware, the Dutch oven’s cast-iron construction makes it the smart choice for braising, roasting and baking.

Should You Register for It?
No matter what you need to cook, chances are you can do it in a Dutch oven. Hearty soups, classic boeuf bourguignon, slow-simmered sauces and even baked breads come out warm and tender from this versatile cast iron pot. Bonus: repeated lifting of a Dutch oven makes bicep curls superfluous.
