Dutch ovens are one of those must have pieces of kitchen equipment. I you don’t already have a Dutch oven then I would recommend that you buy one….
The great thing about Dutch ovens are their versatility, you can, make a meal in the Dutch oven, either on the stove top or oven and then take the pot over to the table and serve the meal directly out of the pot. This saves on washing up.
Another huge advantage of a Dutch oven is their durability, these pots will last a lifetime if cared for well, they are however very easy to care for. After use just soak for an hour in hot water and detergent then wash and dry.
I should mention that Dutch Ovens are very heavy, the reason for this is they are constructed from cast iron covered in enamel, however it is the material they are constructed from that makes them so durable. A large Dutch oven with full with a meat stew does take some lifting, but they do such a good job I can forgive them that.
The most expensive makes of Red Dutch ovens are Le Creuset Cherry Red and Staub 6-Quart which are on sale for over $350, however there are good value Dutch Ovens for sale like the Lodge Color Cast Iron Dutch Oven, Island Spice Red, 6-Quart, which is currently for sale on Amazon for less than $60.
To summarise I feel that a buying a Red Dutch Oven for your kitchen is a purchase you will never regret…..
