Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Fully enameled cast iron
We love the looped handles that allow for a more secure grip during transport. Of course, it also has a tight-fitting lid, a must for any good Dutch oven.
This pot can be used safely up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit with no issues and can be used on any heat surfaces for cooking like gas or electric stove and even an oven.
The smooth enamel makes cleaning very easy.
Ergonomic design with looped handles and a neatly fitting lid give you a consistent pot good for up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven.

What reviewers didn't like

Oven temp not high enough for no knead bread
The only drawback, aside from its heavy weight, is that food has a tendency to stick. The key lies in making sure that the cookware is hot enough before you start cooking.
Unfortunately, though this Dutch oven is not dishwasher safe, so you do need to clean it with your own hands.
Not dishwasher safe.
The only minor drawback is you’ll need to handwash this pot. That said, the enamel coating means you shouldn’t get food debris stuck on and clean-up is not time-consuming.
