Top 5 Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Ovens

Dutch ovens (Also known as French ovens or cocottes) are defines as large, heavy cooking pots with lids. We consider these an integral part of your cooking arsenal (see our top 5 pots and pan types you want in your kitchen) and a somewhat large investment (depending on which you chose). However, it is not uncommon for a good quality dutch oven to get passed on through generations, so it is a worthwhile investment. 

Dutch ovens are great for braising food, making soup, stews and casseroles, as well as some breads . They cook evenly and thoroughly thanks to their thick walls and lids that keep the heat in. 

Lodge EC6D43 Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven

This dutch oven has over 5,000 reviews and still comes out with an amazing 4.5 stars! You can't go wrong with this oven, and it is available in a multitude of colors to match your whims or decor. It's available in a few sizes ranging from 3 qt to 7.5 qt. 

Le Creuset has been the go-to quality brand for dutch ovens since 1925! It is a pricier product, but it has a quality that will not only last you a lifetime, but with proper care, will be passed on to the next generation! Like the previous item, this one is also available in a multitude of sizes, colors and shapes (like this heart shaped one, or this flower shapes one!) 

This is another quality dutch oven available in several colors. Its 6.5 qt size is respectable and will let you cook a nice family meal in it. Though it has less reviews than the previous two pots, the reviews it does have are good, solid ones, and we feel we would trust this brand.

Tramontina is a well-liked brand but we had to scour through Amazon to find you a link to one that was not low in stock! The bonus with this 5.5 qt pot is that it had a fun modern design and comes with some additional accessories (A trivet and some pot holders)!

If you are looking for the more traditional design, we did find a supplier of the classic nice-sized 7 qt Tramontina too

The Staub brand is a top quality one comparable to Le Creuset. People who prefer this pot do so because it is also a high quality product but the black finish inside keeps its clean look. There are many colors and models of the Staub French oven, we chose to feature this one because of its cute and whimsical rooster handle!
