Kitchen Stuff: The 5 1/2 Quart Dutch Oven
In a small kitchen, you don’t need a lot of equipment to cook great food. Still, you do need some pots, pans, utensils, and dishes–obviously. In this occasional column, we’ll be stocking our kitchen cabinets one pot, plate, or appliance at a time.
Le Creuset pots are not cheap, but they last forever. And clearly, they’re workhorses. The iron core conducts heat evenly, while the enamel surface is easy to clean and more or less nonstick.
Top to bottom, some of the miraculous dishes you’ll ladle out of your Dutch oven.
P.S. A thoughtful reflection on what happens when you don’t own the best Dutch oven but make do with something cheaper.
