A cast iron Dutch oven is one of the most versatile cooking gadgets you can add to your kitchen. From soups and stews to slow-roasted meats and freshly baked bread, a Dutch oven can do it all and easily transfer from a stovetop to the oven. If you’ve always wanted to try out the appliance but the prices were just too steep, we have good news: The best-selling Staub Cast Iron Round Cocotte is on sale for just $100 at Amazon right now. Plus, with free two-day shipping for Prime members, you’ll get it just in time for all your Thanksgiving meal prep.
Available in a bright cherry red, this Dutch oven will not only expand your cooking repertoire, but it will also add a pop of color to your collection of appliances. Thanks to a tight-fitting lid, the pot traps moisture inside to ensure your food retains its flavor. The Dutch oven can withstand up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit with the lid on and 500 degrees Fahrenheit without the lid, and the brand recommends that you hand wash the appliance (even though it’s dishwasher-safe).
To buy: $100 (originally $407); amazon.com
“I love this Dutch oven,” one reviewer wrote. “I have been baking bread in it every week since I got it. It heats evenly for baking and for cooking on the stove top. Clean up is a breeze, it is dishwasher-safe, but the enamel interior is nonstick and easily hand washable. It is quite heavy, which is expected and desirable for this kind of Dutch oven. I expect it to last for decades.”
Another satisfied shopper added: “We use this Staub almost every day to cook meat stew, fry fish, and make stir fry. Very easy to use and clean, and the food tastes so great! I wish I bought a few more when it was on sale to give as gifts to friends.”
Since the holidays are right around the corner, we’d recommend learning from that customer’s mistake and purchasing a few Dutch ovens to give as gifts to your favorite home cooks. They’ll be thanking you for years to come, and you’ll be thanking yourself for taking advantage of such a great deal. It’s a win-win.
