In the pecking order of grail-worthy kitchen buys, few items are more storied, useful and long-lasting than a Le Creuset Dutch oven.
The old French company’s pot is unlike virtually every other competitor on the market, and that’s a good thing. It’s thinner and lighter than its rivals (from Staub to Lodge), which makes it easier to handle and heat more quickly. Its lid strikes the ideal balance between steam release and moisture retention, which makes for better, richer braises, stews and the like. And the creamy white cooking surface, though it will being discoloring after prolonged use, makes tracking the progress of browning a whole lot easier than the black interiors of its competitors.
But Le Creuset’s cookware is grail-worthy for a reason — the price. The classic 5.5-quart Dutch oven usually costs in the neighborhood of $350. Today, it’s 20 percent off, or $272 (only the yellow color).
